Jeremiah Bolich, Evangelist

Jeremiah BolichJeremiah Bolich began his ministry education at Olivet Nazarene University in January 1996. While attending Olivet, Jeremiah traveled and held revivals and teen camps primarily in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana. After graduating from Olivet in 1999 and receiving his ordination from the Church of the Nazarene, he and his wife entered into full-time itinerant evangelism.

From 1999 through 2013, Jeremiah and Karenda lived on the road, traveling across the United States, preaching the Gospel. In February 2005, they had their first child, Curtis Jeremiah (CJ) Bolich.  Two years later in October 2007, they were blessed with their second child, Ellayna Bolich. The Bolich family continued to travel and minister together until 2013 when they purchased their first home in Watertown, Tennessee.

Since 2013, Jeremiah has continued to travel, preaching and teaching across the globe. In 2018, Jeremiah and a group of ministers began work on what has become the City Taker Training Center in Lebanon, TN. Receiving students from across the United States, the Training Center focuses on training both deacons and elders in city-transformation ministry.

Jeremiah continues to preach and teach today, dividing his time between the road, the Training Center, and his family.  He resides with his wife and children in rural Watertown, Tennessee.
