Jeremy Courtney is a person you notice first in a room because he is a sharp dresser. And when I (Logan) first met him at a BBQ a year ago, I wondered why on God’s green earth he was wearing a blazer in the Texas summer heat. After talking to Jeremy and learning his God-sized story of challenge and hope and loving people, I didn’t care what he wore in the Texas heat. All I could see was a big ol heart with a passion for loving a group of people that the world often calls “dangerous”. Jeremy has a contagious smile, and a story that makes you evaluate your own to live braver and love bigger. It is our absolute pleasure to welcome Jeremy Courtney to our Allume conference this year and know you will have as much fun getting to know him as we have!
What was your favorite food as a kid?
What chore do you despise the most?
Paying bills, which requires me to stand in line in offices across our city in Iraq
When was the last time you chatted with your neighbor?
Ha! Right after the city police here in Iraq broke into our house and stole our truck on a falsified
claim from an employee I’d fired that I had stolen the car from him. It was an inside job, so the
disgruntled employee was effective in stealing my truck. Now we walk everywhere we go and my neighbors
think I’m a car thief!
What sound do you love?
My kids giggling uncontrollably when I give them whisker kisses. A mom and dad doting on their child after heart surgery in Iraq
