My name is Jeremy Linneman, and I am a pastor and writer living in Columbia, Missouri. This is my online collection of articles and resources. (It’s not a blog.)
Trinity Community Church exists to practice the way of Jesus together for the renewal of all things. Trinity was started in 2018 by a group of friends and is centered around five core values: grace, formation, community, mission, and prayer. We are perhaps most known locally for our unique emphasis on prayer and spiritual formation in community. Visit trinitymo.org for more information.
My wife, Jessie, and I have been married since 2006. Jessie is a J-School graduate and has worked locally for City of Refuge. She now helps people find healing and renewal as a mentor at Restore Counseling. Our three boys (Joseph, Jude, and Jack) are students in Columbia Public Schools and enjoy playing basketball and baseball, learning guitar, and generally just making noise. We live on a few acres near Rock Bridge State Park.
Prior to becoming Trinity’s founding pastor, I spent seven years as a staff pastor of Sojourn Church in Louisville, Kentucky, focusing on small groups, leadership development, and pastoral care. I’m a graduate of the University of Missouri and Southern Seminary and am pursuing a doctorate at Covenant Theological Seminary. (My doctoral studies are focused on cultivating and sustaining spiritual renewal among Christian leaders.) Before entering ministry, I worked in biomedical research and non-profit management.
I enjoy road and gravel cycling with my team, Big Tree Cycling, and do a few races each year. I also love writing: I write regularly for The Gospel Coalition (articles, book chapters, booklets, etc.) and, in 2017, published a short book on discipleship and community.
