    Jeremiah is a dramatic storyteller who grew up in Pennsylvania to a house divided, one half Mennonite, and the other decidedly not. Jeremiah escaped, joining the US Air Force serving until the divide of right and wrong was a battle in his own mind about everything. Enduring this battle with him was his wife and two children to the crisis point of finally being medically discharged in 2008. Jeremiah found this new condition the enemy and to survive it meant many humble surrenders to doctor’s best guess of what would stabilize him. While in such a treatment, he met a man who came out of Christ’s love to check on him. Bert Schmidt. That very day changed his life, the seed of recovery was planted.

    Christ has rebuilt me after a divorce, a suicide, and losing everything I thought I had, including respect, love, and acceptance.

    I now stand by God’s Grace, married, with 4 adult children, and grand kids who only see the man Christ restored.

    Jeremiah will be speaking on Exodus 15 The Song of Moses at this retreat.

  • Charlie York
    Charlie York
    GTH Speaker

    Charlie is originally from upstate New York and is the youngest of seven children. He and his older brothers and sisters were not raised in a Godly home, which had a very negative impact on him for most of his life. Anger, rage and unforgiveness lead to several addictions which caused him many legal problems. Throughout this, he was somehow able to serve this country effectively for 21 years in the Marine Corps. But he had no relationship with Jesus Christ.
    But God revealed to Charlie that living for the world – and in much darkness—was not what He wanted for him. In the midst of deep depression, Charlie finally gave his life to the Lord through a powerful conversion experience 2001. Unbeknownst to him, his soon to be wife was also saved the same year. Their marriage was a blessing and challenge as they began their blended family. Today Charlie and Sandee live in East TN and attend Ewtonville Baptist Church where Charlie has served as the men’s ministry leader & Sunday School teacher for the past 8 years.
    With the Lord’s help, Charlie’s passion for biblical leadership can show followers of Christ, we have Nothing to Hide, Nothing to Prove and Nothing to Fear!
