Raised in Frankfort, Kentucky, Jeremiah Shawver is the sixth of seven children. In high school he interned at his local church, where God confirmed his call into ministry. Jeremiah attended Moody Bible Institute where he met his wife, Lisa, and they both received Bachelors of Arts degrees in Youth Ministry. It was during his time at Moody that he discovered a passion for helping people learn how God has uniquely gifted them to fit into His Kingdom, and that calling has propelled him as he worked with young men in the foster care system and in serving as a youth leader at Woodland Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky.
Having just completed his Master of Divinity at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Jeremiah, Lisa, daughter Ivy, and son Henry arrived in Visalia, where Jeremiah has already assumed his role as our new Youth Pastor. We are thrilled to welcome them to our Parkside family and to Visalia!
