HELLO, I’M JEREMY . . . I’m the lead pastor. My main role is to lead and feed. I provide leadership and vision for the church and I am usually the person who shares the message on Sunday mornings. Here’s a little more about me:
BASIC STUFF: I was born in Lockport, NY and grew up most of my life in Wilson, NY. I went to Houghton College where I got a scholarship to play basketball, and eventually met my wife Erin. I graduated with a degree in Bible and Educational Ministries. After college I became a youth pastor at a church in Wellsville.
FAMILY: My wife Erin and I were married on August 10th, 2003. We have been blessed with four amazing boys (Ayden, Ethan, Owen and Josiah). I would also like you to know I’m the undisputed wrestling champion of the Gorham household! I hope to have this title for another few years while the boys are still smaller than me 🙂
SPORTS TEAMS: Duke Blue Devils, Buffalo Bills
HOBBIES: Playing basketball, editing family videos, and wrestling with my sons
FAVORITE PLACES: Florida Keys and basically anywhere my family is.
FAVORITE RESTAURANTS: Chipotle, Theos’ Family Restaurant (Arcade), Oishi Sushi and Hibachi (Olean), and the famous Texas Hot (Wellsville)!
TV SHOWS: “24″, Criminal Minds, ESPN’s PTI and First Take.
FAVORITE MOVIES: Karate Kid 1, 2, and 3. And no, I did not like, “The Next Karate Kid” They should have stopped at number 3.
MUSIC: I love all kinds of Christian music: Hillsong, Chris Tomlin, Rend Collective, Vertical Church Band, Elevation Worship.
DISLIKES: Clutter; I like my office and my home to be clean and organized (which half the time it is not)
WHAT I DID BEFORE BECOMING A LEAD PASTOR: I was a youth pastor for 3 1/2 years in Wellsville (’03-’06) and then a media pastor for 3 years in Texas. As a media pastor I was in charge of creating websites, graphics and videos for our church.
LIFE SCRIPTURE: Micah 6:8, “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
