Meet Our Youth Pastor
Pastor Jeremy D. Young
Jeremy D. Young accepted the invitation to come on board the Battlefield Parkway staff in January 2017. He was born and raised in Bethany, Oklahoma, learning from an early age how to off-road, fish, and evade tornados. He attended Southern Nazarene University, where he graduated in 2006 with a bachelors degree in Christian Education. He spent ten years in Orlando, Florida doing youth ministry and homeless outreach. Jeremy was ordained on the Florida Nazarene District in April 2011.
The blueprints of his ministry revolve around Acts 2:42 - “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” He believes that an effective ministry embraces this model. When students commit to deepening their knowledge of Scripture, to doing life together, to remembering the sacrifice Jesus made for them on the cross, and to walking daily with God in conversation and action, the youth ministry will experience real transformation.
He loses track of time editing videos, listening to his favorite band Thousand Foot Krutch, watching college football (specifically the Oklahoma Sooners!), hiking, exploring, writing, and having conversations at Starbucks.
Jeremy is engaged to Abbi and that makes him the happiest guy in the world.
UNMASKED is BPCN's student ministry. Our motto is "Let Go, Lived Renew." Despite the influences of a broken world, we believe today's youth are ready to let go of the fear, hurt, control, pain, shame, pride, stress, heartache, addictions, etc. in their lives through a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ. It has always been God's plan for them to live renewed lives full of hope, freedom, joy, forgiveness, peace, rest, love, healing, and so much more. This journey of letting go and living renewed calls us to Love God (Worship), Love Ourselves (Spiritual Growth), Love Others (Discipleship), and Love the World (Service). Our services and events encourage our youth to actively engage in these core values.
We meet in the upper room above the rear entrance to the gym.
