A B O U T
Thank you for stopping by.
You’ve figured out by now that I’m a minister and that my name is Jared. I am currently a pastoral resident at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas. I’m married to Hannah, an artist in both digital and classical media.
I harbor an obsession with religion and theology. From my religious education as a child, trying to make sense of the doctrines presented to me, to studying the Bible in multiple academic degrees, to attempting to teach and preach a meaningful and transforming gospel in my current context; I have wrestled with the Christian faith for all my life.
The decision to make Christianity my profession developed slowly through various opportunities and intuitions, and because of people in my life who showed me a calling to be a minister. At times, like any of us, my evolution of faith and vocation has been shadowy and confusing. However, God has influenced me through my skills, feelings, logic, and my community to pursue a career in Christian ministry.
This site serves two purposes. Primarily, this acts as an interactive résumé and portfolio that goes a little bit deeper into who I am than a traditional résumé. In the other pages herein you will learn more about me and my ministerial goals, and you will find some samples of the work I have done.
