Our Pastor

    Bro. Jeremy Crawford was born in Jacksonville FL August 5, 1980 to his parents Jeffrey and Sherry Crawford. He was saved at the age of 20 in the parking lot of the steel plant where he worked in Starke,  Florida in June of 2000. He was baptized in July of 2000 at Laura Baptist Church of Starke, Florida.
   He married Tabitha Green of Brooker, Florida on January 9, 2004. In 2006 he began to feel the call of God on his life to preach. He spent two years heralding the Gospel in nursing homes, prisons, and jails all throughout his community and others before he officially surrendered to the call in 2008. He was subsequently licensed in 2008 by the authority of  Lighthouse Baptist Church of Brooksville, Florida. Bro. Jeremy then moved to Citrus County where he served in the community under the pastorate of Bro. Eric Justice at New Hope Baptist church. In October of 2009 he felt led to move back to his home town of Starke where he spent 3 years and 8 months preaching the Gospel at the Bradford County Jail and other meetings at different prisons and churches throughout.
   In August of 2013 God led Bro. Jeremy back here to Citrus County to plant a Local, New Testament Church. We began meeting in his living room on September 29, 2013 under the authority of Croom O Coochee Baptist Church of Webster, FL. On October 27, 2013 we had our first service in a rented building in Lecanto, Florida where we are still meeting today. We have seen the Lord provide already in so many different ways and are looking forward to seeing what He has in store for us in the future as we serve this community by preaching the glorious Gospel of Christ.
