Jeremy Selvidge

Lead Pastor

Ministry @ MPNAZARENE: I began my ministry at MPNAZARENE in March 2008. I am passionate about leading the church to "Love Jesus and Embrace People." During my time here I has completed my Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry Degrees.

Family: I married my wife Kristie in 1997 and  together we have three kids: Regan, Jace and Rylan. 

Faith Journey:  I met Christ when I was a young boy and gave my life to him then. I grew up in a home with two amazing parents who loved God and served as missionaries. I came to recognize that God wanted a personal relationship with me. I have lived a life growing closer to God as God has transformed my heart and life.

Hobbies:  I love to run, read and write, spend time with my amazing family, explore the outdoors and live life with others.

 Random Fact:  I like braised eel.

Youth and family DIRECTOR

Ministry @ MPNazarene  I started working at MPNAZARENE in June of 2017. 

Family: I  married Emily in June of 2017 after we both graduating from Olivet Nazarene University. We now live in Mt. Pleasant and are excited to serve this church and this community!

Faith Journey:

I was born into a Christian home and accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior at the age of six. The very first thing I remember was wanting to be a pastor. I did not realize it then but God would, in fact, bring that calling back later in life. After a difficult high school career, God called me to Olivet Nazarene University, where I received a second call to ministry. It was there I studied to become a pastor prior to accepting a position at MPNAZARENE.

Ministry @ MPNAZARENE: I began attending MPNaz in the spring of 2016. I currently serve as the Director of Children's Ministries, where I oversee birth-5th grade ministries.

Family:  I am blessed to have two families. The first is with my Mom back home, and the second is with my CMU roommates. I am also the proud mom of Fluffy (my cat), as well as Shawn & Murphy (my fish).

Faith Journey: I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior when my dad passed in 2012. It wasn't until I got to college in 2015 that I fully understood what that choice meant. I was baptized in fall of 2016. In the summer of 2017 I moved to Virginia Beach for 2.5 months as part of a Cru missions trip.

Ministry @ MPNAZARENE: I started attending MPNazarene in September 2017. I began working in the office in May 2018 as the secretary, and took on the role of Ministry Coordinator in July 2018. 

Family: I married my husband Ryan on April 22,2005. We have 5 beautiful daughters.

Faith Journey: I did not grow up in a Christian home, and only had a vague understanding of who God was. I started attending church regularly at 15 when I was placed in my last foster home. My foster mother accepted me for who I was, and she began planting seeds that God had something more for my life. However, I never really knew what a real relationship with God looked like until I was 24. I was baptized shortly after in March of 2006. Since then I have chose to be a continuous work in progress, always being molded by God's love, grace, and will for me. 

Hobbies:  Eating tacos, napping, and spending time with family & friends.
