Jamin Eben

Jamin EbenJamin Eben hails from the Black Hills of South Dakota. He holds a BS in Music from Black Hills State University (2009), and a Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville Kentucky (2016).

Jamin worked as a Christian broadcaster for nine years in the upper Midwest before coming to Kentucky to pursue his Masters of Divinity in 2012. He served for five years as a pastor in Southern Indiana before joining TTI.

While working as a broadcaster, Jamin was involved in several short-term missions trips and was broken over the theological famine afflicting pastors in the developing world. This new found passion developed into a close relationship with the mission and staff of TTI, and eventually a full time partnership.

Jamin focuses his efforts on the areas of preaching, exegesis, theology, and church history. He lives in Louisville KY.

By God's grace, we strive to be God-exalting, Christ-adoring, people-loving Teachers of Truth.
