Inclusion Fusion Speakers…Jeremy Collins

Without Jeremy Collins, we wouldn’t be able to put on a conference like Inclusion Fusion.

Jeremy serves of the Children’s Pastor and Media Director at Bethel Harvest Church in Nicholasville, KY. In Jeremy’s spare time, he launched a website, Pajama Conference, to provide ministry education for free or at a very low cost. Pajama Conference was founded upon the belief that education shouldn’t have hours of operation or believe that you should have to spend a lot of money on travel and hotels to go to a conference to learn what you can in your pajamas. Several members of our team had an opportunity to participate in this year’s Children’s Ministry Websummit, saw the potential Jeremy’s technology presented for equipping churches to serve families of kids with disabilities and Inclusion Fusion was born.

This past July, I was attending the CMX Expo and saw Jeremy present a talk on uses of social media in children’s ministry that was one of the best presentations I’ve attended this year. Following that presentation, we invited Jeremy to present on the topic Using Social Media in Special Needs Ministry – In today’s age of technology social media plays a huge role in almost everyone’s lives.  In Jeremy’s message, he goes into detail on how you can use the power of social media to boost the exposure of your special needs ministry.

Jeremy is a native of Kentucky, known as a technology guru in many circles.  At age 16 Jeremy was programming his own computer games and trying to find ways to hack into programs.  After college, Jeremy found himself working in retail sales until God had better plans for him. In addition to his work at Bethel Harvest Church, Jeremy launched Bethel House Media, and more recently, KidminCoaching, to provide video training to children’s pastors and ministry leaders everywhere.

By the way, today is Jeremy’s birthday. Wish him a Happy Birthday on Facebook!

Jeremy will be joining more than twenty leaders in children’s ministry and disability ministry on November 3rd-5th to put on a FREE Special Needs Ministry Web Summit to connect church staff, volunteers, family members and caregivers everywhere. That’s Inclusion Fusion, featuring Keynote Speaker Chuck SwindollRegister here  for the Summit!
