I have known Jeremy and his family for years. I consider them, "Church of God Royalty." A little over ten years ago, Jeremy did a summer internship at Stevens Creek Church. He was a gifted leader as a teenager and he has grown into a man of influence.
Jeremy is leading the Mount Paran Campus in Canton, Georgia. We need young men like Jeremy ... men with a vision to reach this generation for Christ. Do something different at the General Assembly. Consider voting for Jeremy Isaacs. If you don't know him, here's a bio from their website.

I come from a long line of ministers going up both sides of the family tree several generations. I decided not to pursue work in the "family business" and went to college with aspirations of law school and a future in politics. All that changed one Sunday night in a college chapel service while I was doing homework in the balcony (very spiritual, I know). At some point I turned my attention away from my books and began to hear God speaking to me about the course of my life. In the altar that night, I accepted God's call to a life of ministry and immediately changed my major.
We joined the staff at North in January of 2007 as Director of Student Ministries and High School Pastor. We later served as 20s and 30s Pastor and Director of Next Generation Ministries. In June 2011, we began in yet another new role as the Campus Pastor for the new Canton Campus of Mt. Paran North. We are really excited about what God is already beginning to do in the Canton community and in the group of people committed to helping us launch this new campus.
I have a Bachelors degree in Church Ministries, and a Masters degree in Theological Studies. In 2009, my first book you're not as good as they say you are, but you're not that bad either, was published.
I am married to my best friend, Corrie. Together, we have three little boys, Cooper, Branson, and Tucker, and a little girl named Kinley.
Interests and Favorites: Corrie and I like to watch Netflix once the kids go to bed … and I still watch reruns of "West Wing" to get my political fix. I am a lifelong UNC Tarheel fan and pull for University of Tennessee football while waiting on basketball season to start back up. I love all sports and will keep playing until I beat you.
Books: Contrarians Guide to Leadership, The Tipping Point, Outliers, The Key to Everything, Good to Great, The Circle Maker, Axioms, Wild Goose Chase, 7 Practices of Effective Ministry, and anything by John Grisham, David Baldacci, or Patrick Lencioni
Odd Fact: I could eat Mexican food 3 meals a day. I love it!
Life Scripture: "The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure" 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT).
