Pastor Jared grew up in Colon, Michigan—the Magic Capital of the World (don’t worry…he’s not a wizard or anything). He holds both a BA in Christian Ministries and a MPTh from Indiana Wesleyan University. Additionally, he has a passion for preaching and teaching how theology is relevant to everyday living. Reading books, dwelling in nature, and cracking jokes are just a few of his favorite things. Pray for our children’s minister, Kayla (his wife)—he’s the biggest kid she watches.
