Jeremy Lile, M. Div.

Executive Director

Jeremy’s passion is to help people discover and deploy their purpose. For over 15 years, he has coached dozens of individuals and teams to live out their core values through what he describes as the four quadrants of life: UP with God/Divine, IN toward an Authentic Self, OUT in Transformative Relationships, and FORWARD in Loving Service. He believes that the foundational skills that come from the inner life have the most potential to inspire people in the work they do.

In addition to leading organizational growth as the Executive Director, Jeremy enjoys facilitating The Enneagram, Leadership from Within, and StrengthsFinder for Heart to Heart.

Through his experience in pastoral ministry and organizational development, Jeremy has spoken at retreats and events, facilitated numerous small groups, organized community engagement, and lead small teams on missions around the country and world.

Jeremy is married to the love of his life Christy and they have four children. When he’s not working for Heart to Heart, Jeremy is also the lead pastor and visionary for City Hope Akron, a grassroots church and community development organization committed to serving people in West Akron.

Jeremy has a B.A. in Psychology from Taylor University and a Master’s of Divinity from Ashland Theological Seminary. He is also certified in Appreciative Inquiry, the MBTI and The Enneagram in the Heart to Heart Way.

Why do you enjoy your work with Heart To Heart clients? 

I enjoy working with Heart to Heart clients because there’s always an “Aha!” moment where you see the integration of one’s inner life beginning to impact their outer work and you know things are never going to be the same after that. I also enjoy working with Heart to Heart clients because they are changing the world through their work in our community, and we get to be a small part of that by helping unleash what inspires them to do more of that work in a sustainable way. We truly have the best clients!
