Jeremy met and married his wife at the University of Georgia. After graduating, they moved to Birmingham, AL and joined a church plant so that he could attend seminary at Beeson Divinity School. As a young couple in a new city, they had life-changing experiences with church community, small groups, and discipleship. This set their family on a faith journey that led to ordination and pastoral ministry in 2005. Since then, Jeremy has served as a student pastor, college pastor, and life groups pastor.
God also opened doors for Jeremy to serve the body of Christ as a writer, editor, and director of church resources. After ten years in full-time publishing with Student Life, NavPress, and LifeWay, the Maxfield family followed God’s call to Brainerd Baptist Church.
Jeremy, Amanda, and their three daughters: Adalyn, Ella, and Katy Jane, love Chattanooga. They enjoy rock climbing, paddling, camping, fishing, and hiking to waterfalls with Lucy their chocolate lab.
