Pastor Jeremy Driggs

After receiving his first prophetic word in 2002, Jeremy’s life was changed so much that he devoted himself to serving the Lord and His people. He began attending NLCC in 2003. Quick to chase after the words spoken over him, Jeremy soon engaged in mentoring, discipleship classes, and serving the Body of Christ every opportunity possible. He was ordained as an elder on March 4, 2007 where he currently serves with his fellow eldership team. Jeremy’s heart is to help the lost and wayward find their way home – back to Jesus Christ. Aside from his involvement with discipleship classes, children’s church ministry, and men’s meetings – He has also traveled to Peru, Ukraine, and Hungary for mission work. Jeremy has been married to his wife, Ashley, since 2009. They have 3 children, Ella, Cohen, and Lydia. Their family enjoys spending time with friends and family, entertaining guests, traveling, watching movies, and eating at new places. They are excited to see what God is going to do next!

Pastor Jason King

Jason has served as an elder at NLCC since 2002 and as a youth pastor since 1997. In 1996, Jason received his B.S. in Secondary Education from Bowling Green State University.

In addition to this, he has also enjoyed the challenge of coaching wrestling over the past 2 decades and is currently the Celina High School Varsity Assistant coach. Jason is the son of Pastor Gary and Paulette King. Although he was reared in a godly home, he began to run from God in his senior year of high school. While reluctantly traveling on a mission trip to Central America with ATM short-term missions, God radically turned him around and set him on fire with a passion for the Kingdom of God. This “Damascus Road” experience on the mission field birthed a desire in him to reach the nations. He has ministered in such countries as Belize, Guatemala, Haiti, Peru, Brazil, Guyana, England, and Wales on numerous trips since the early 90’s. Jason works to plant and re-build churches abroad. He currently serves as the Administrative Director for Apostolic Team Ministries (ATM) and is a founding elder for Kingdom Life Ministries, a 2018 church plant in Washington D.C. His passion for discipleship and leadership training has been a major focus of his ministry. Jason married his high school sweetheart Joèl in 1996. They have been blessed with four beautiful children (Joshua, Jaden, Aliyah, and Aaren).
