David Paul Jeremiah (born February 13, 1941 in Toledo, Ohio) is a conservative evangelical Christian author, televangelist, and currently the senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, an evangelical megachurch in El Cajon, California, a suburb of San Diego.

Biography[edit]

Jeremiah was born in Toledo, Ohio in 1941 to Ruby Jeremiah and James T. Jeremiah, a Baptist pastor and former president of Cedarville University.[1]

Jeremiah earned a bachelor's degree from Cedarville University (1963) and a master's degree from Dallas Theological Seminary (1967). Cedarville presented him with an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree in 1981.[2]

Jeremiah succeeded Tim LaHaye as Shadow Mountain's senior pastor in 1981. Jeremiah's leadership of the church has led it to become affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.

Jeremiah broadcasts a daily evangelical radio program on stations worldwide through his Turning Point Ministries, which he founded in 1982. The broadcast can also be heard online. He is the author of numerous books on Christian theology and morality.

In 1994 and again in 1998, Jeremiah was diagnosed with lymphoma. In 1999, a nodule was surgically removed from his neck and he underwent stem cell transplant therapy.[3]

Jeremiah's son, Daniel, is a former NFL scout, and is currently an analyst with the NFL Network. [4][5]
