A Portland, Oregon native and reluctantly recovering hipster, Jered received a masters degree from Western Seminary and planted a church in the City of Roses for the last ten years. Being middle-aged it may seem as though several years are unaccounted for in his narrative, but they were mostly spent being a youth pastor, associate pastor, enjoying being married to his favorite person and raising three beautiful girls. He doesn't get what the big deal is about Portillos, but has acquired a taste for deep dish pizza, loves the church and loves motivating people to live transformed lives in Jesus.
