Guest Speaker

Jeremy Riddle

Jeremy Riddle is a pastor, worship leader, and songwriter who carries a deep passion for God’s glory and His church and whose heart burns to see purity restored. Originally from New Jersey, Jeremy was introduced to contemporary worship as a 12-year-old boy through Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Not long after, Jeremy and his family transitioned to Southern California and began attending Vineyard Anaheim, where he continued to grow as a worship leader and songwriter.

In 2009, Jeremy and his family moved to Redding, California, where they attended Bethel Church and were a part of the Bethel Music Collective. After nearly a decade, the Riddles felt God leading them to move back to Southern California, and without it being the original plan, they ended up back on staff with Vineyard Anaheim. They now serve as the worship, prayer, and creativity pastors, partnering to rebirth a regional and global worship and prayer movement focused on wholehearted devotion to the Lord.

Jeremy and his wife, Katie, have five amazing children, whom they consider to be their greatest ministry assignment and legacy.
