Faith Ascent Ministry

 Faith Ascent Ministries is a St. Louis based ministry with a mission to fight for the next generation of Christians, equipping them with the knowledge and tools to solidify and defend their Christian Worldview. Their speakers are carefully chosen based on their expertise as well as their ability to effectively communicate with teens. Their topics are carefully chosen based on the questions Christian teens are asking (and being asked) as reflected in their survey results.

Jeremy Smith (pictured with his wife, Faith) is the Executive Director for Faith Ascent Ministries. In addition to overseeing the general operation and development needs of the ministry, Jeremy helps to prepare young Christians for the intellectual and spiritual challenges they will face after leaving home.  Jeremy was graciously saved in 1997. Since then, he’s taken his role as a "backyard missionary" seriously and is extremely passionate about helping non-Christians and Christians to think through and seriously consider what they believe, why they believe it, and why it matters.  Jeremy is ordained as a youth minister through The Evangelical Theological Seminary of Orlando, Fl and is pursuing his  certification in Christian Apologetics from Biola University.
