Hi. My name is Jeremy Mavis.
I’ve been married for 8 years to Amanda Mavis and we have two daughters named Sari and Macie. We live in Hayward, WI where Amanda works in real estate @ Woodland Developments and Realty and I serve as a children’s pastor @ Hayward Wesleyan Church, working with children and youth from birth through 8th grade.
In conjunction with my role as a children’s pastor, I am working for The Wesleyan Church denomination and their Department of Spiritual Formation in Children’s Ministry. I serve on their children’s ministry team. Together we serve to resource, influence, and encourage churches as well as leaders and volunteers in children’s ministry.
I graduated from Multnomah University with a bachelor’s degree in Bible & Theology and Youth Ministry in 2003. Prior to Multnomah, I attended the Wisconsin Wilderness Campus of Philadelphia Biblical University in Cable, WI in 1999-2000 as well as the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK for one year (1995-1996) after graduating from Mustang High School in 1995.
I enjoy taking children and groups on adventures and experiencing life together with people. I like teaching the intricacies of the story of the Bible and living out/modeling the kingdom of God for children and teenagers in their current culture. I love anything related to technology (blogging, reading, website development, graphics, etc.), new projects, and traveling.
