Jared is our Youth Minister and has been with us since September 2018.
When were you born?
23 April 1995
I'm married to Annie and we have a little dog called Bilbo.
I love board games. We have a fairly large collection and enjoy playing them with anyone who'll give them a go!
I also like watching Liverpool FC and more recently, the Tennessee Titans #titanup
I'm a big fan of camping and the outdoors, especially being in the sea. One of the best experiences of my life so far has been wild camping next to a loch and looking up at the night sky without any light pollution. It was amazing!
How did you become a Christian?
I grew up in a Christian family, my grandad was a Baptist minister so I learned a lot about God and the Bible. So I was always aware of God and decided to follow him when I was very young! Then when I was about 13 or 14 I did a Youth Alpha course and it all became a lot more real to me. I had what my dad likes to call the 'one foot drop' where it went from something I knew to something I felt.
Does pineapple belong on pizza?
Absolutely it does! I'm up for trying most wacky food combos so pineapple on pizza is quite tame really.
What's your favourite Bible verse?
I've always liked 1 Timothy 4:12; Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
I liked it for myself when I was a young person, now I like it for the young people I work with!
