Pastor Jeremy Eastwood:
Jeremy’s call to the ministry and path to the pastorate of Sackville Independent Baptist Church has not been a direct or typical one having earned a BSC from Dalhousie University, Masters of Education from Mount Saint Vincent University, and worked as an administrator at both Dalhousie and Saint Mary’s universities for 14 years before the Lord graciously placed His call upon Jeremy’s life.
Born in Saint John, NB, Jeremy moved to Nova Scotia at age ten, living in a small community on the south shore of the province. It was during this time that the Lord brought his wife, Cheryl, into his life. They were married in 1996 and began attending SIBC the same year. The Lord has further blessed their marriage with the heritage of four children: Raeanna (14), Alexandrea (11), Saul (9), and Maryska (6).
Jeremy received and accepted the call of Sackville Independent Baptist Church to their pulpit and began to minister as pastor in May 2012. It is his desire and prayer that through his ministry the scriptural mandate for preaching will be accomplished: namely, that the saints of God would be perfected, edified, growing and maturing until the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ is achieved, and that sinners, having heard the glorious gospel proclaimed, would call upon the name of the Lord and be saved.
