Carson-Newman University has named Jeremiah Young as director of campus ministries, effective March 15. Young comes to C-N from Manley Baptist Church in Morristown, where he served as student pastor for eight years. Young previously served as youth minister at First Baptist Church in Ozark, Arkansas.
He holds a Master of Arts in pastoral ministry from Caskey School of Divinity at Louisiana College and a Bachelor of Science degree in youth ministry from Toccoa Falls College. “Jeremiah Young has a passion to see students changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ,” said C-N President Charles Fowler. “He demonstrates a commitment to discipling followers of Christ to use their God-given gifts to transform the world. Such a ministry is a perfect fit for Carson-Newman where, as Christian educators, we help our students reach their full potential to become worldwide servant-leaders.”
