Meet Jeremy & Kate Back


Jeremy and Kate visited Crossway for the first time last summer when they moved here from Sydney, Australia.  They found us via the internet and began coming regularly in January of this year.  Both are Aussies—Kate grew up in the country, 6 hours outside of Sydney, while Jeremy spent most of his formative years in Birmingham, England as a missionary kid.  They married in June of 2010 and Jeremy’s job brought them to the United States.

Kate is a school teacher but currently at home.  Jeremy is an engineer for Fenner Precision in Manheim, presently working in their sales department which requires frequent travel.  The couple lives in the Eden area and just transitioned from the Plank Care Group to Jared & Rebekah Randolph’s Care Group meeting in the city.  Jeremy and Kate are waiting to adopt domestically and also participate in the Adoption Care Group.

Crossway has been a bit different from what they were used to in Australia.  Their former church had about 100 members, and because the Backs were there for 10 years, they were pretty fixed in the life and work of the church.  But, Jeremy and Kate recognize that there are good differences that Crossway can bring to their definition of “church”—Care Groups being one, for example.  When asked what drew them to pursue membership they said that the pastoral team’s faithfulness to the Scriptures and the quality of their expositional teaching were key.

Father-Daughter Campout — This weekend marked the latest edition of one of Crossway’s great traditions, as dads took their daughters ages 4-12 to the church property for some memory-making, Christ-honoring experiences. Thanks especially go to Josh Coleman (above, leading worship music) for all his work in coordinating the campout. Click on the photo to link to an album of images from the event.

Everyday Worship

Your pastors would like to recommend this worthwhile conference if you would like to understand how God’s Word relates to your everyday life and struggles.

From the offices of CCEF,

“We would like to personally invite you to a new CCEF regional conference, Everyday Worship: How God Brings the Bible to Life, with keynote speaker David Powlison. The conference will be held at New Life Presbyterian Church in Dresher, Pennsylvania, on Friday evening, June 24, and Saturday morning, June 25.

Is Scripture alive for you? Do you struggle to connect the Bible to the way you live? What is going on when you do take to heart some word from God? When an explanation of your suffering makes sense, or a revelation of who God is captures your imagination? Through four teaching sessions and worship together, we will be talking about and acting on how the words of God become personally relevant.”
