Story by Tamyra Horst

Jeremy Garlock has accepted the invitation by the Pennsylvania Conference Executive Committee to serve as vice president for Education. Garlock joined the conference February 1. He most recently served as Superintendent of Education and associate Youth Ministries director for the New York Conference.

“This move to the Pennsylvania Conference is a big decision for my family and me,” says Garlock. “As with all such big decisions, there is a certain level of uncertainty, especially for our young girls. But at the same time, there is excitement to see God’s clear calling and working in our life. I am excited to see how He continues to lead and what His plans are for the future.”

Garlock is passionate about connecting young people with the gospel. He has served as a teacher and principal, while also being involved in Youth Ministries and Young Adult Ministries. He has planted a church and speaks frequently for churches, camp meeting and other events. He facilitated the creation of Revolve Young Adult Ministries for the New York Conference and piloted a youth mentoring program.

“We praise God for leading us to Jeremy and for the gifts and talents that he will bring to our team here in Pennsylvania,” shares Gary Gibbs, president. “Our personnel committee was impressed with his spiritual walk with God, commitment to mission and thorough knowledge of the job. It is obvious that God has placed His hand on Jeremy, and we look forward to seeing how God will use him in Pennsylvania.”
