Billings Funeral Home welcomes Pastor Jeremy Sarber

Twelve years is long enough to preach more than a thousand sermons, pastor two churches, and plant a third. Jeremy Sarber knows because he’s done it. He served as a Christian pastor and Bible teacher for twelve years until the time seemed right to begin an indefinite sabbatical from that particular role and pursue a different kind of ministry—namely, assisting families after the loss of a loved one.

Trading the tobacco fields of North Carolina for Indiana corn, Jeremy and his family returned to their hometown of Nappanee in the summer of 2019. Soon after, God’s providence united him with the Billings Funeral Home family where he can use his humble gifts to serve the wonderful people of Elkhart County. Mortality can be an unpleasant, albeit necessary matter, but he’s thankful for every opportunity to help others grieve, remember, and even celebrate the life of one who has passed.

Equipped with experience in funeral service, preaching, counseling, community outreach, writing, and web development, Jeremy is thrilled to play a part in the thoughtful, compassionate, personalized service provided by Brad, Jo, Dorinda, and the entire staff of Billings Funeral Home.

On a personal note—he’s not always working, after all—Jeremy loves spending quiet evenings at home with his beautiful wife, Danae, and playing with his baby girl, Norah. Otherwise, you’ll likely find him reading a book, watching an Atlanta Braves game, listening to a Bob Dylan album, or writing (for the pure enjoyment of the craft).
