About Till He Comes.org
The goal of my website is this:
I write to bring Scripture and Theology to life.
A lot of writing about Scripture and theology is boring, hard to understand, and once understood, makes little difference in one’s life. In my writing, I hope to change all this.
If you want to know what I believe… well, I want to know that too, which is another reason I write. I think best when writing. I write so that I might learn what I believe. I write so that I might continue my theological education in public.
But you are looking for some sort of “Doctrinal Statement” then check out my unDoctrinal Statement blog post.
If you want to see what sorts of authors and books have most influenced my thinking and theology, check out my Recommended Christian Books page.

The Back Story
The site began in 2001 when I was still a pastor as a place for me to post my sermons manuscripts and audio recordings. Some of these are still on the site: Sermon Audio and Sermon Manuscripts. In 2007, I added the blog, which became my primary form of online communication. However, the blog also become unwieldy as I had numerous topics I was writing about. Along with Bible Study and Theology, I was looking to get published and plant a church.
So more recently, to help me focus the content of this blog on its original purpose, I started several other blogs for these other purposes:
- Grace Commentary is a free, online, interactive Bible Commentary. It contains academic research on various books of the Bible. Right now, I am working through the the book of Jonah and the Gospel of Luke.
- Grace Ground is a free, online blogging community for church leaders and church planters. I write there about my own church planting journey.
- Grace Books is a free, online blogging community for Christian authors and writers. On this site, I write about my efforts to get published, and what I am learning in the process. If you are an author, or are looking to get published, feel free to join the blogging community there and start building (or add to) your author platform.
- Grace Blogger is where I provide free tips and tricks for ministry blogs. I am completely self-taught when it comes to blogging and web-design, and over the years, many people have asked me to help them set up their blog. I love to help others, but found that I was answering the same questions over and over. So I set up this blog to share some of what I have learned over the years about blogging. If you are a new blogger, or are looking to learn some of what I do as a blogger, check out this site.
- Redeeming Press is the publishing arm of my ministry. I not only publish my own books through this company, but also seek to help other authors get their books into print as well. At Redeeming Press, we focus on publishing with generosity and grace. We want to return publishing to the way it used to be, where the main concern about a book was not how many copies it would sell, but whether or not the book contained redemptive and important truths. We also try to be generous in our royalty structure, giving authors 30% (or more( royalty payments.
As you can see by the titles, I’m a big fan of grace. It is the theme of my writing and my life. Of course, most of these other blogs do not get updated frequently, because I simply do not have the time. But they are there for future writing projects…
What does “Till He Comes” mean?
Till He Comes is actually an acrostic for “Truth in Love, Letting Him Equip Christians to Obey, Minister, Evangelize, and Send.” Catchy, huh? I cringe when I think about it now. Oh well. Now I just think of it as a reference to 1 Corinthians 11:26 where Paul writes that we are to proclaim the Lord’s death “till he comes” (NKJV).
That summarizes this site well. Though Paul is talking about the Lord’s Supper in 1 Corinthians 11, one of the ways we can proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes is by dying to ourselves daily. When I look back and who I was when I started this site, what I believed, and the things I wanted, I can hardly believe the changes that God has brought about in my life. Most of who I was and what I wanted is now dead. In many ways, I’m still trying to fill the voids that were left behind, and this site is helping me in that quest.
My Blog posts contain a journey of me trying to fill in the holes, connect the dots, and put into words what I’m thinking and feeling about where I’m at. Also, Bible study is still a huge part of my life, and while I post some of my informal studies here on this blog, most of my formal studies will be posted over at my other website: Grace Commentary.
More About Jeremy Myers
My entire story is not posted anywhere, but a rough outline of the past ten years is posted on Jason Boyett’s blog, Oh Me of Little Faith. I have also written about my experiences as part of a book I recently published called: Finding Church: Stories of Leaving, Switching, and Reforming.
I work as a prison chaplain, but that’s just a job to pay the bills so that I can do what I really enjoy: spend time with my wife and three girls, read, write, and study.
I received my Th.M. from a leading seminary in Texas, have published articles in various theological journals, have written several books, and have started a publishing company.
