First Saturday Night – Jeremy Spear
Jeremy grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and went to Kansas City College and Bible School in Overland Park, Kansas as well as Hobe Sound Bible College in Florida, where he met his wife Ronda. He knew they would get married the first time he saw her. After 30 years of marriage, he says it’s still her touch and her smile that he needs to have each day. Together they have been remodeling a 250+ year-old house—a place for their three grown children, one daughter-in-law, and one grandson to visit.
Jeremy directs all aspects of the camp’s ministry, prepares budgets and casts vision, which he’s been doing since 2011. He looks forward to continuing to lead the Roxbury team in serving people and sharing Christ’s love. He enjoys attending the services of the various groups and has found it to be spiritually encouraging—challenging him to study the scriptures to find the basis for his own faith. Before serving as the Camp Director, Jeremy pastored Lakeview Community Church in Goodrich, Michigan from 2008 – 2011. Prior to that he served as a youth pastor to churches in Michigan and Oklahoma. He always knows two things: how many days until Camp Meeting and how many days until his next cruise.
Jeremy has been Roxbury Holiness Camps Executive Director since July 2011. Jeremy served as a youth pastor for 17 years in several states and revitalized a church in Goodrich Michigan from 2001 – 2011.
In his spare time Jeremy makes custom pens and other woodworking projects.

Closing weekend Evangelist And Missions Day Speaker – Steve DeNeff
Rev. Steve DeNeff graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) with an undergraduate degree in 1981 and with his M.Div. in 1996. He received an honorary Ph.D. from IWU in 2003.
Pastor DeNeff is the Lead Pastor at College Wesleyan Church (CWC), which is strategically located between IWU and the Marion community, “giving us the unique advantage (and call/mission) to serve both,” DeNeff said. “When we built the church at its current location, we purposely placed the cross on top of the building, facing north and south as opposed to the more traditional east and west. This is symbolic of our intent to not only serve both campus and community, but to be a bridge that opens doors for shared community, relationship and spiritual formation. At College Church, we are privileged to have a myriad of resources in our people. Through them, we are able to resource the greater Church. While there are churches who are really good at incorporating current trends into their DNA and others who hold fast to long-standing traditions, CWC finds itself standing in the strength of both heritage and a mission that is timeless in serving an ever-changing culture.”
DeNeff is an avid reader, and he enjoys jogging. He likes time away at his cottage in Holland, Michigan, a great donut, bold coffee and watching his kids grow up into the life God has placed them.
Teen Camp Speaker: Zach Salizar
Zach is the Youth Pastor at The Meeting House Carlisle. Together, his wife, Melissa, and he created two of the coolest human beings, Diego and Cortez. Zach is an avid player of strategic board games.
