My name is Jeremy Freeman and I have been the Pastor of First Baptist Church Newcastle since July 2009. I am married to the beautiful Emily Freeman. Together we have 7 children: Brittany (18), Caleb (17), Clayton (16), Aubrey (10), Luke (4), Addi (3), and Trey who went home to be with the Lord as a 7 year old on September 1, 2013.

I became a Christian when I was 16 years old and God called me into full time ministry when I was 17. I attended Oklahoma Baptist University and graduated with a Master of Arts in Religion in May of 1999. After college, I took my first full time ministry position in Rogers, AR. While in Rogers, I began attending The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary via extension center. I graduated from Southern in May of 2008 with Master of Divinity degree.

I served as an associate pastor of discipleship and missions at Parkview Baptist Church in Tulsa, OK for nearly 5 years and accepted my first full time senior pastor position at First Baptist Church of Newcastle in July 2009. I have the most loving congregation on the planet and I am privileged to pastor such an amazing group of people.

I have been at FBC Newcastle nearly ten years and God has blessed our church immensely. I pray the Lord allows me to stay at FBC Newcastle for 40 years.

Some of my favorite things are reading; playing and watching sports; spending time with my family; and studying/preaching God’s Word. My favorite Scripture verse is 2 Corinthians 4:18, which says, “So we fix our eyes, not on what we can see, but on what we cannot see; for what is seen is temporary and what is unseen is eternal.” May we always live for the eternal things…things that truly matter!

    I was blessed to attend a crusade for go tell last night. Your father spoke and reached so many young people. My eyes were closed and my head was bowed when he did alter call. as he did I felt the rumble of feet hitting the metal bleachers. Young people running to kneel to our GOD. Amazing feeling! Paris, Texas is praying for you and your family to find peace and understanding as you mourn the loss of your child. Thank you for letting your story be told.
