Jeremy and Karen Shaw

Pastor Jeremy will preach at Living Water during the month of July. He and his wife Karen will spend their sabbatical here in our area.

Jeremy has served as the Pastor of the Dalkeith Baptist Church, Dalkeith, Scotland, near Edinburgh, since 2009.

He was raised in a non-Christian home in Essex, England, but attended Sunday school where he learned about Jesus. He made a personal commitment to follow Christ at the age of 13. He attended church as a youth in Essex at the Romford Evangelical Free Church.

While in his twenties Jeremy began attending a Baptist church and it was there where he met Karen, who later became his wife.

He sensed God’s call to ministry in 1996 and pursued ministry education, training at Spurgeon’s College, London.

In 2002 Jeremy began serving at The Stockton Baptist Tabernacle as the Director of Mission, as part of a team, and in 2005 he moved to serve as Pastor at the Beacon Lough Baptist Church, Gateshead.

Jeremy then accepted a call to Dalkeith Baptist near Edinburgh, Scotland in 2009. Jeremy and Karen have two grown children, Robert and Jessica.

Jeremy and Karen enjoy walks with their Border Terriers, traveling and reading. Jeremy has also run marathon races.
