About Jeremy
  • Education: Received my BA in Biblical Counseling from Faulkner University in 1994. Received my Masters of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty Theological Seminary in January 2010.
  • Experience: Youth Minister for 6 years in Sheffield, Alabama and Franklin, Tennessee. Preaching Minister in Atlanta, Georgia; Scufflegrit, Alabama, and Port Arthur, Texas.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Nothing is new under the sun, especially these sermons. I have shamelessly borrowed for the glory of God. You can find more of my sermons at www.jeremyhouck.com
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: The Games People Play - It was my first series that I preached. Buddy Bell did a series on Baptism that really made me rethink my beliefs and reconfirmed them.
  • Family: In June 1995 I married the former Trista Pierce of Bay Minette, Alabama. God has blessed our home with two wonderful little boys. Trafton was born in February 2001 and Rylan was born January 2004.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They have told me that it is better to hear me preach that it was to watch me do anything else growing up. Sports, Chorus, and band were great but to hear your son proclaim the Gospel is a thrill that cannot be topped.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She has a real heart for ministry and supporting me in the lonely world of preaching. When we are on vacation she always says she would have rather heard me.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Be honest. Preach about your faults and the congergation will listen when you talk about theirs.
  • Books that have had an impact: Generation to Generation by Freedman; 12 Steps for the Recovering Pharisee, Like Me; Anything by Jim Cymbala, Fresh Wind Fresh fire, Fresh Power, Fresh faith; 9 things you simply must do to succeed in life by Henry Cloud.
  • Hobbies: Golf (Prayer meeting with the Greens), singing, spending time with my family.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: God is Good, All The Time and All The Time God Is Good!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Not so much funny as embarrassing. It was while I was interning as a Youth Minister one Summer and I was given the opportunity to speak. Right in the middle of the sermon a lady started to feed her newborn, not with a bottle, and I was speechless for a few seconds. After the service the preacher told me he knew what had happened and had forgot to warn me about it.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Born July 9 1973 - Died, Never Just transfered to the Home Office!

    To our young people as they head back to School. Taking God with you to school is risky but rewarding.

    Philip Yancey has described it as one of the ugliest words in our language. It is a word that nearly suffocates all the joy out of life. The word is irreversible. But through Jesus that which was irreversible has now been reversed.
