Jeremiah Returns to NGU
Dr. David Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California, will make a visit to campus on Tuesday, February 18 for An Evening with David Jeremiah in support of NGU’s Christian Ministry Scholarship Fund (CMSF).
An Evening with David Jeremiah is scheduled as one of the CMSF’s three annual meetings. This particular dinner meeting is being offered to the CMSF membership until February 11, but if space is available, we will be offering it to the general public on February 12. Guests will enjoy dinner and an inspiring message from Dr. Jeremiah at no charge.
The CMSF, formed in 1997, provides opportunities to help make an impact on those students who are being equipped to become “Difference Makers” for Jesus Christ serving in full-time Christian ministry. Currently the CMSF has 342 members; the CMSF is a $3 million endowed scholarship fund. A goal of $2 million was set for the CMSF in the GIFT God Capital Campaign. To date, over $1.1 million has been raised. Our hope is that this special event will move others to join the fund and help us reach our goal.
Shadow Mountain Community Church is one of the largest churches in San Diego County. It is also the home of Southern California Seminary and Christian Unified Schools.
Prior to Shadow Mountain, Dr. Jeremiah served 12 years as pastor of Blackhawk Baptist Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana where he grew the church from seven families to 1,300 members. While there, he launchedThe Bible Hour television program. He was called to Shadow Mountain in 1981 and felt God’s calling to continue the broadcast ministry he started in Fort Wayne. In 1982, Turning Point Ministries became a reality.
Today, Turning Point's 30-minute radio program is heard on more than 2,500 stations worldwide. In recognition of Dr. Jeremiah’s commitment to teaching the Word of God, he received the Broadcaster of the Year Award in 1999 from the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB). In August 2002, Jeremiah received the Award of Merit from the Western Chapter of National Religious Broadcasters for Excellence in Broadcasting and Faithfulness in Service. In 2006, Turning Point received the Best Radio Teaching Program Award. Dr. Jeremiah has served on the Board of Directors for the NRB since 1996.
Turning Point launched a television program in 1989 in San Diego and went nationwide in 2000. Now seen around the world through cable and satellite technology, as well as on terrestrial stations all across the United States, conservative estimates suggest that close to 200 million homes around the world have access to Dr. Jeremiah's Bible teaching each week. Turning Point Television offers a half-hour Bible study message and a full hour worship service with the same great preaching. The program airs on national networks including TBN, ION, INSP, USA, and Lifetime, and internationally on the Middle East TV Network.
Along with his speaking schedule, Dr. Jeremiah also finds time to fulfill another passion in his life: writing. His books are always gripping and right to the point. Some of his books include: Escape the Coming Night;The Power of Encouragement;What the Bible Says About Angels;Prayer, The Great Adventure (which brought him The Gold Medallion Award in 1998); God In You;Gifts from God;Jesus' Final Warning;A Bend in the Road; Slaying the Giants in Your Life;My Heart’s Desire (which gave him another Gold Medallion Award in 2003); Sanctuary (his first daily devotional book); The Things that Matter; The Prayer Matrix;Searching for Heaven on Earth (a book that he co-authored with world renowned artist, Thomas Kinkade);The Secret of the Light (a second devotional book); Turning Points; Captured by Grace (which put Dr. Jeremiah on the best-sellers list for USA Today and The Wall Street Journal);Signs of Life (which made TheNew York Times best-seller list); What in the World Is Going On?
