Turning Point by David Jeremiah

Turning Point for God was founded in 1982 as the broadcast ministry of Dr. David Jeremiah to deliver the unchanging Word of God to an ever-changing world. Over the years, the phenomenal growth of the English broadcast ministry has enabled David Jeremiah’s teaching to be translated into multiple languages, taking the ministry outreach beyond our borders. Today, Turning Point reaches every state in the U.S., covers six continents, and touches people around the globe with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

David Jeremiah’s commitment to Bible Strong teaching with an emphasis on content—not causes, current events, or politics—is Turning Point’s trademark. Creative vignettes, special musical selections, and seasonal productions supplement his messages, but the purpose of every program is to draw men and women into knowledge of God’s Word. Study materials designed to engage participants in the Word of God accompany each broadcast. These innovative resources combined with the unchanging Truth of God’s Word continue to fuel the growth of Turning Point’s broadcast ministries.

Dr. David Jeremiah

Founder and host of Turning Point for God and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, David Paul Jeremiah, was born February 13, 1941, in Toledo, Ohio. He is one of four children born to James and Ruby Jeremiah. During his childhood, his family moved to Dayton, Ohio, where his father, James T. Jeremiah, served as Pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church. In 1953, the Jeremiah family moved to Cedarville, Ohio, when his father became the President of Cedarville College—which is now Cedarville University.

Growing up in a pastor’s home, David was immersed in ministry from an early age. During his senior year at Cedarville College, he felt God’s calling to enter full-time ministry. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1963, and that same year he married his college sweetheart, Donna Thompson. After graduation, they moved to Dallas, Texas, where David attended Dallas Theological Seminary. He received his Master’s degree in Theology in 1967. Completing additional graduate work at Grace Seminary, he was granted the Doctor of Divinity degree from Cedarville College in 1981.

In 1969, David and Donna began a church plant in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with seven families in attendance. He served as pastor at Blackhawk Baptist Church for twelve years. During that time the church grew to 1,300 members, Blackhawk Christian School was founded, and The Bible Hour television program was launched.

In 1981, the Jeremiah family, which now included four children, followed God’s call and moved to California when Dr. Jeremiah became the senior pastor of Scott Memorial Baptist Church, which is now Shadow Mountain Community Church. Today Shadow Mountain Community Church is one of the largest churches in San Diego county with eight satellite locations including Hispanic and Arabic congregations. The main campus of the church, located in El Cajon, California, is also the home to Southern California Seminary and Christian Unified Schools, a multiple site kindergarten through twelfth-grade Christian school district.
