Jeremy Rizer was born into a Lutheran family but only practiced in order to please his mother. He started to drink after his parents separated. Driven by the culture that surrounded him, Jeremy found that drinking helped him talk with girls. Shortly afterwards he entered the world of drugs, where he remained for fifteen years. Through his mother and his sister, Jeremy found out about the Cenaculo community. After several failed detox programs, finally God brought him out of the world of darkness into the light.
