After being discharged from the United States Marine Corps in late June of 1995, Jeremiah experienced a life-changing encounter with Jesus at a Billy Graham crusade in southern California. Although not quite clear, he felt a call upon his life and moved back to Indiana in early July where he began attending Harris Chapel Church of the Nazarene.
In early August of that same year, Jeremiah took work remodeling the Sears store at the Muncie, Indiana shopping mall. One evening while on his break and reading his bible, Jeremiah read 1 Corinthians 9:16: “Yet when I preach the Gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel!”
That moment marked a pivotal and defining call upon his life. After consulting with his pastor, he began making preparations for his ministry training.
Jeremiah began his ministry education at Olivet Nazarene University in January 1996. While attending Olivet, Jeremiah traveled and held revivals and teen camps primarily in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana. After graduating from Olivet in 1999 and receiving his ordination from the Church of the Nazarene, he and his wife entered into full-time itinerant evangelism.
From 1999 through 2013, Jeremiah and Karenda lived on the road, traveling across the United States, preaching the Gospel. In February 2005, they had their first child, Curtis Jeremiah (CJ) Bolich. Two years later in October 2007, they were blessed with their second child, Ellayna Bolich. The Bolich family continued to travel and minister together until 2013 when they moved into their first home in Watertown, Tennessee. Since 2013, Jeremiah has continued to travel, dividing his time between the road and his family. He resides with his wife and children in rural Watertown, Tennessee.
