Jeremy Cantrell

Youth Pastor

RESPONSIBILITIES
Jeremy is responsible for the Jr. & Sr. High student ministry (C.H.A.O.S.), and helping the students develop a faith that lasts into college and beyond. Jeremy and his wife Devon served on a volunteer basis, prior to Jeremy’s ordination and coming on staff in September 2016.

MOST MEMORABLE DAY IN MINISTRY
The most memorable day in ministry for Jeremy was the first time he played guitar in the praise band at Antioch. He will tell you that he had no idea where that step of faith would lead him, or the doors that it would open.
