Jeremy Wallace, Lead Pastor
In early 2010, Maranatha Baptist Church called Jeremy Wallace as pastor. Having worked in ministries in the Chattanooga area as well as in Ohio, Jeremy brings a fresh outlook to this well-established church. His priority is to lead the church to intentionally make disciples of all peoples. Jeremy believes this is done through a focus on maturity and missions/outreach. In the pulpit, Jeremy is committed to practical expository preaching. Dana, his wife, has a Bachelor of Science degree in Music and teaches piano at Grace Academy. Along with using her musical talents, she directs the women’s ministries. Jeremy and Dana have two sons; Nathan and Jonathan.
Pastor Wallace received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Bible with minors in both Business and Psychology from Tennessee Temple University, a Master of Ministry Degree from Temple Baptist Theological Seminary, a Master of Religious Education Degree from Temple Baptist Theological Seminary, and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry Degree in Theological Studies from Temple Baptist Theological Seminary (only dissertation remaining).
Prior to becoming the Senior Pastor at Maranatha Baptist Church, Pastor Wallace was the Senior Pastor of a church plant in Ooltewah, TN from 2008-2010. He also served as the Youth and Public Relations Pastor at the Canton Baptist Temple in Canton, OH from 2004-2006. Prior to his time in Ohio, Pastor Wallace served as a youth minister at a church in East Ridge, TN from 1999-2002. He was also the Director of Admissions at Tennessee Temple University from 2002-2004 & 2006-2007.
