David Paul Jeremiah (born February 13, 1941) is an American conservative evangelical Christian author, founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, a Southern Baptist megachurch in El Cajon, California, a suburb of San Diego.


Jeremiah was born in Toledo, Ohio in 1941 to Ruby Jeremiah and James T. Jeremiah, a Baptist pastor and former president of Cedarville University.[1]

Jeremiah earned a bachelor's degree from Cedarville University (1963) and a master's degree from Dallas Theological Seminary (1967). Cedarville presented him with an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree in 1981.[2]

Jeremiah succeeded Tim LaHaye as Shadow Mountain Community Church's senior pastor in 1981. Jeremiah's leadership of the church has led it to become affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.

In 1982, Jeremiah founded Turning Point Ministries which focuses on multi-media Bible instruction. Its flagship program is Turning Point, a half-hour radio program that airs Jeremiah's sermons. Jeremiah has won awards over the years through the Turning Point program, such as the 2006 National Religious Broadcasters award for Best Radio Teaching Program.[3] Turning Point Ministries also developed a national television program in 2000. The television program features a 30-minute Bible study followed by an hour of preaching and worship music.

Turning Point can be heard worldwide on more than 2000 stations, as well as online. Jeremiah's radio program is available to over 480 million listeners in numerous countries. Additionally, Turning Point Television reaches a total of 2.7 billion households worldwide.[4]

Momento Decisivo, the Spanish language edition of Turning Point, is now available in every country that has a Spanish speaking population.[5]

In addition to being a pastor and leading Turning Point Ministries, Jeremiah is the author of numerous books on Christian theology and morality. Prayer – The Great Adventure won the 1998 Gold Medallion Award for Best Christian Living Book,[6] and My Heart's Desire won the 2003 Gold Medallion Award for Best Inspirational Book.[7]

In 1994 and again in 1998, Jeremiah was diagnosed with lymphoma. In 1999, a nodule was surgically removed from his neck and he underwent stem cell transplant therapy.[8]

One of Jeremiah's sons, Daniel, is a former NFL scout, and is currently an analyst with the NFL Network.[9][10]

Jeremiah currently serves on President Donald Trump's evangelical advisory board.[11]
