BSK alumnus Jeremy Colliver is this year’s recipient of the CBF Young Leaders Award.  Jeremy is Minister with Students at St. Matthews Baptist Church in Louisville and is a 2008 graduate of BSK.

This award is presented annually to a young Baptist, congregational or clergy leader, who represents a growing interaction with and support of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.  This person has a demonstrated ministry to peers and colleagues of every generation.  The recipient has also engaged the Fellowship in leadership and servanthood.

Jeremy is a contributing writer of lessons for youth to the Baptists Today news journal and serves on the Strategic Planning Committee of BSK.

The award is given to affirm the recipient, to encourage the younger generation of Fellowship Baptists, and to excite the continued interaction across multiple generations.

“The award was unexpected, so it came as a complete surprise. It’s always nice to be affirmed by your peers for the ministry that they see you doing,” Colliver commented. “I also couldn’t be more grateful for the foundation that Baptist Seminary of Kentucky provided me. I don’t believe there is a better place for people to be challenged and equipped for ministry than at BSK”.

The BSK community congratulates Jeremy and celebrates his recognition!
