Jeremy Hopkins has been interested in foreign missions for most of his life. Hearing missionary stories and reading missionary books as a young child fueled this desire even more. From an early age he dreamed of when he could travel overseas to visit another continent. This dream finally came true at fifteen years of age when he went on a Touching Lives for Christ mission trip to Lesotho. During this trip he felt God clearly call him to the mission field and accepted that call. Since then he has been preparing to be a missionary by taking several more short-term trips and by becoming more involved with ministry in his local church.
After graduating from high school Jeremy studied at Union Bible College (UBC). God used this institution greatly in his life—not only in missionary preparation but also in spiritual preparation. While at UBC, he was privileged to help lead several teams on short-term trips both in country and out of country. Having Honduran classmates who encouraged him to visit their country, he chose to complete a six-week internship in Honduras. It took very little time in Honduras for him to fall in love with the people there. In 2017 he graduated from UBC with a BA in Missions/Pastoral Ministry. In the fall of 2017 he began teaching at Union Bible Academy while also working on an MEd in Teaching and Learning from Bob Jones University.
After college Jeremy continued taking several short-term trips to Honduras. With each trip he felt God giving him a deeper passion for the souls there. As he sought God’s will for his life, Jeremy felt God clearly leading him to go full-time to the mission field in Honduras with HIM. Upon acceptance as an HIM missionary in February of 2020, Jeremy began preparations for mission service in Honduras with HIM and will soon be traveling on deputation.
Philosophy of Ministry
In Honduras Jeremy will be mentoring new believers and making disciples of Christ. His passion is to show God’s love to those who are lost and hurting. He desires to accomplish this by implementing intentional discipleship, training national leaders, planting churches, and providing educational needs to the impoverished.
A Note from Jeremy
“Your prayer and financial partnership in the Great Commission will enable me to fulfill God’s calling in my life to go and make disciples in Honduras. Thank you for your support!”
