In August of 1984, Jeremy Empie was born to his wonderful parents, Lee & Kim Empie. At birth he almost died, causing him to have cerebral palsy. To this day, Jeremy believes that the enemy was trying to take him out from the beginning because of the incredible work the Lord had in store for him. One of Jeremy's favorite scriptures is:
Romans 8:27-29 (NLT):
And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
It was challenging for Jeremy growing up. In all that He went through, He never gave up on the Lord. In 1991 Jeremy was saved, he was in the second grade. The next four years, although Jeremy was saved, he didn’t really “know” God (there is a difference, and some of you who are reading this don't know the difference). Yes, Jeremy’s parents took him to church, he went through all the motions, but there was no relationship.

In 1995, the Brownsville Revival broke out in Pensacola, Florida. This is where God really captured Jeremy's attention. It was there that Jeremy received the Holy Spirit. The next year, Jeremy's parents enrolled him in Jubilee Christian Academy. Jubilee played a major part of Jeremy's life.
Jeremy started preaching the Gospel while in the 7th grade. His formal ministry began in 2004 under Jesus Saves Ministries and in 2007 he incorporated and changed the name to Jesus Saves International Ministries. In 2011 Jeremy became an Ordained Pastor and graduated Bible College in 2013. Since then he has preached, seen many come to know Christ, watched God perform miracles and had the privilege of giving accurate words of knowledge for the building of the Kingdom of God. His heart is to see individuals, churches, regions and countries being transformed by the amazing love of Jesus Christ and leave people empowered to do the will of the Father.
In 2010 Jeremy married the love of his life, Katie. Together Jeremy and Katie share the vision to spread the Gospel throughout the world. They seek to honor God through their lives and Jesus Saves International Ministries.
