Jeremy began pastoral ministry in 2008 as a high school teacher and girls' basketball coach at Luther Prep School in Watertown, WI.  From 2011-2018, he served Atonement Lutheran Church in Plano, TX.  Jeremy helped set the vision and lead the congregation's efforts to start and expand their Early Childhood Ministry as well as build a brand new 250 seat sanctuary.  


Jeremy accepted a call in August 2018 to help launch Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Arvada. He is passionate about community involvement as a church planting pastor in order to make the city better and spread the word about our new west Arvada church.  Currently, Jeremy serves on the Arvada Festivals Commission, is a member of the Arvada Chamber of Commerce and Arvada Young Professionals, coaches youth sports at the Simms Street Apex Center, and is a volunteer for the Arvada Center.  


Jeremy is married to Kelsey, an ER doctor at local hospitals.  They are blessed with a daughter, Ellie, and a baby boy who will be born in November 2019.  In their free time, the family hikes, bikes, skis, enjoy craft beer and craft coffee, and embraces all that the Colorado landscape has to offer.

Pastor Jeremy Belter has only been in Arvada for a year, but he already counts many neighbors. In August of 2018, he moved to Colorado from Dallas, Texas to start the second campus of Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Westminster. Jeremy, a pastor for 11 years, jumped right in to build connections within the Arvada community to establish programs and a congregation. A year in the making, Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church Candelas will hold its long-awaited launch service on October 6 at 9:00 AM. more
