High School Pastor: Jeremy Doyle

Pastor Jeremy grew up in the small town of Ramona, CA in San Diego County and moved to Bakersfield to wrestle and study at CSUB in 2003. He was a volunteer leader for Young Life for 8 years until he became a Pastor at Valley Baptist Church. Before working at Valley Jeremy was a substitute teacher at Centennial High School where he coached wrestling. He was also on the Kern County Fire Department Helitack Crew 408 for one season. Jeremy and his wife Kelsey got married in September of 2010 and now have three beautiful children, Nolan, Everly, and Eden. In his free time he loves to play golf, watch football, play board games, and hang out with family and friends. God has given Jeremy a passion to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others and a big part of that came from attending Valley Baptist Church in his college years.
