Dr. Jeremy Kimble
Dr. Jeremy Kimble

Dr. Jeremy Kimble is passionate about teaching college and seminary students the truth of God’s Word. His hope is that through his courses, students will grow in their love for God and others, rightly understand the grand narrative of Scripture, and apply theological truths to everyday life as they make disciples and multiply churches. Dr. Kimble is committed to teaching in the classroom, mentoring students in smaller settings, and speaking in churches, camps, and conferences. He served in pastoral ministry for eight years and most recently served as co-leader of an adult Sunday School class at Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville, OH. In his role as a theology professor at Cedarville University, Dr. Kimble’s academic interests include biblical and systematic theology, ecclesiology, preaching and teaching, discipleship and spiritual growth, and biblical and pastoral leadership.
