Our Staff

Our staff is pleased to be able to share the love of Jesus with men caught in addiction.

Executive Director

We are looking for the next person God has for us in this position.

Gary Chapman, Operations Manager

Gary serves as our Operations Manager.  Gary is a (nearly) lifelong resident of Greene County.  Gary has a pastor’s heart, personal experience with addiction and being rescued by Christ. Gary and his wife Faith were married in 1997 and have three children.  Gary also serves as the pastor of Zion Baptist Church here in Xenia where he has served for 27 years.  Gary has a B.A. in Sociology from Central State and also has an advanced certification in Biblical Counseling and a certification in Mental Health Coach, both through Light University.  Gary is “giddy glad” to be working in a place where he can both help men and share the gospel with them.

LaShaun "Spence" Spencer, House Manager

Spence is our House Manager over both the TreeHouse and the GreenHouse.  Spence has been rescued by God out of addiction so he really understands what our men are going through.  Spence has a great love for our Savior.  He was one of our residents and now is on staff.  That means he understands how things work around here already.  We are happy he is with us!

Steve Wilson, Program Manager

Pastor Steve has a heart for discipleship ministry and loves to see the Lord drawing people closer to Himself. Steve is the founder of BibleHelps.info and is the pastor of a House Church in Xenia. He has a degree in Business Administration, a Master of Divinity degree from United Theological Seminary, and is a certified Biblical and Addiction Counselor through Light University. He and his wife Mindy were married in 2003.

Susan Jero, Admin

Susan serves as our Administrative Assistant.  She started volunteering at The Jeremiah Tree when her youngest went away to college.  Susan had homeschooled their four sons all the way from K-12 and was wondering what God had in store for her next.  She thinks it is pretty funny that God gave her only sons and now has her in a recovery house for men.  Susan and her husband, Paul, were married in 1984.  They are enjoying the empty nest and now both serve on the Jeremiah Tree Board of Directors.
