Who We Are
Jeremiah 38 Ministries Inc. is founded on the principles found in the Bible in Chapter 38 of the Book of Jeremiah. In this Chapter, Ebedmelech (his name means “Servant of the King”) comes to the aid of the Old Testament Prophet Jeremiah. Jeremiah had been cast into a miry dungeon because he had faithfully proclaimed the Word of God. Ebedmelech risked his life to approach the king and made a plea to save Jeremiah from this miry pit.
The king instructed Ebedmelech to take 30 men and pull Jeremiah from the pit. It is from this principle of coming to the aid and assistance of fellow laborers in Christ that Jeremiah 38 Ministries is founded. Jeremiah 38 will partner with other fundamental, Bible Believing Christians and Churches. Jeremiah 38 Ministries’ goal is to share the Gospel of Christ at home and around the world, while transforming the lives of our partners and volunteers. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” Matthew 28: 19
The business of Jeremiah 38 Ministries is overseen by a board of committed Christians devoted to serving the Lord. Current board members include:
Sending mission teams to do the Lord’s work takes the financial support of many, and involves multiple fundraising efforts.
The cost of each mission trip is approximately $1,500 per missionary, and that expense is expected to be covered primarily by each missionary. Some scholarships are available, either partial or full, to help those who have a heart to serve who might not otherwise be able to attend.
Additional fundraising events are held throughout the year to ensure coverage of medical supplies and other expenditures that help to promote the local churches and missionaries during these trips . These events include:
- Lawrence County Fair Gates

What We Do
We are a missions and missions support organization helping to share the love of Christ locally and internationally. We accomplish this primarily through the sending of short-term, medically oriented mission teams who provide a much needed service to the communities that are being served by our international ministry partners. This allows us to provide both physical and spiritual care with the assurance that the people to whom we minister are connected with a biblically solid local church upon our departure. Jeremiah 38 will also send mission teams to help with Vacation Bible Schools, construction assistance, or other projects to assist Pastors and orphanages.
We are proud to have partnered with Oakland Chapel Church. This partnership creates more opportunities for Jeremiah 38 to help serve around the world by conducting:
- Short Term Missionary Trips
- Vacation Bible Schools
- Medical Teams
- Leadership Development
- Missionary Support
- Orphanage Assistance
- Patoral Assistance
