Jared lives in Washington, D.C. with his wife, Jen. They have three children: Joshua (8), Joanna (4), and Caleb (3). Jared surrendered his life to Jesus Christ at the age of 24. Soon after, God called him to preach the Gospel and plant churches. Jared always felt called to preach the Gospel in unreached areas, and after several years of prayer, he received the call to go to Canada to plant a church. After planting Fellowship Oshawa in the Greater Toronto Area in 2016, Jared raised up Canadian elders and moved back to the States. Jared received his BA in Bible at Howard Payne University in Brownwood, TX, and his Masters in North American Church Planting at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Now pastoring Pillar DC, Jared is excited to continue to preach the word of God and equip the saints for the work of ministry. In his free time, Jared enjoys cheering on his native Houston, Texas sports teams (Astros, Texans, and Rockets).
