Bro. Jeremy VaughanAssociate Pastor of Youth/Children's Ministry Coordinator (Pastor)
I am originally from Starkville, MS (go bulldogs!) but have lived in Nashville, TN and Fort Worth, TX before coming on staff at Fredonia Baptist Church in January of 2017. I was saved when I was 12, but struggled with my walk with the Lord in high school and my first year of college. It was a road of heartache that only led to me becoming depressed and only wanting to live for myself. It wasn’t until I got down on my knees one night and prayed that God would forgive me of my sins and self-absorbed lifestyle that I truly started to see a change in my walk with the Lord. Soon after, I felt that God was calling me to full-time ministry but I ran from that calling because I didn’t think God could use me because of my past. As stubborn as I was, God never once stopped putting that calling on my heart, and in 2014 I finally surrendered to the Lord and dedicated my life to full-time ministry. In 2015 I moved from Nashville to Fort Worth, TX to begin my seminary degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Once there, I began pursuing my Masters of Christian Education with the intent to minister to the next generation. During my time there I also became the Youth Pastor at First Baptist Church in Kennedale, TX and worked there until God called me to Fredonia Baptist Church! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Victoria, and our 2 pets. I also love spending time in the outdoors and enjoy hunting, fishing, and playing any kind of sport.
