Cedar College Pastor
Hi, I’m Jeremy Wright. I serve as Cedar College Pastor, providing pastoral care and direction to students, staff, and families.
I was born into a family with a heart for mission – living out the good news of Jesus wherever God took us. The love of Jesus took hold of my early. I’m an Adelaide boy, a cricket tragic, lawn enthusiast, and obscure music fan. I have a beloved Arts degree which opened my eyes to the world of literature, the diversity of culture in this world, and the beauty of the story of God. Uni also showed me the crucial need for young people to see Jesus clearly and live life boldly for him.
I spent a fair chunk of my life in touring bands. This taught me how to live on cold baked beans, how young people are lost without Jesus, and how vital God’s word and his church are for my spiritual survival. That sparked a desire to be in full-time ministry. I studied ministry and counselling at Bible College and became a school chaplain.
I also became a husband to Clare. We have two kids and it is a joy to see them grasping the love of Jesus too.
I recently completed studies in Biblical Counselling with the Christian Counselling Education Foundation in Philadelphia. This truth is clear: the hurts of the human heart cry out for the love of Jesus. Working in the CityReach team and the Cedar College team does not feel like work at all. I love it! Every day God lets me step into the mission of helping young people see Jesus clearly and live boldly for him.
