Jeremy & Danae Hoyt
- Our Local
- Our Reach
- Our Self
Jeremy and Danae Hoyt serve in the Pikes Peak region of Colorado which consist of the cities of Colorado Springs and Pueblo as well as rural communities on the high plains. Some of the needs evident in the community include poverty, alarming drug use, and broken families. There is a growing population of residents who are not affiliated with any religion and a high percentage in the community who do not attend any church.
After seeing the need in their community, the Hoyts felt a call to reach the forgotten and un-churched in their area. Their outreach takes them to small towns, urban multi-housing communities, schools, and care centers. Some of their ministries include after-school Bible outreaches, mentoring and discipleship opportunities, a care center ministry, and neighborhood chaplaincy.
Jeremy and Danae have started after-school ministries in places like schools, churches, and an apartment complex – locations that make it easy for kids to attend. They want children whose parents never bring them to church to have an opportunity to say “yes” to God. A typical ministry session keeps the children engaged with skits, activities, worship songs, Bible study, and a time to learn about and pray for missions around the world.
The Hoyts have served as InFaith field staff since 2008.
Jeremy received a bachelors’ degree in pastoral ministry at Nebraska Christian College in 2001. He has enjoyed the privilege of being used in preaching, and youth and children’s ministries.
Jeremy and Danae feel a strong urge to be in places where the church is not reaching into the local community. “Great ministry can happen in the forgotten places of our cities and rural areas,” Jeremy writes. “We feel our role with InFaith helps meet our passion in ministry.”
The Hoyts have four beautiful children.
