give to the nations
God wants us to bring his name, his message, and his ministry to all nations. Whether it's praying, giving, or going, we provide a number of strategic opportunities for people to get involved, finding their purpose in Christ through the mission. If you want to make your life count for something significant, we will show you how. Let’s have a God-sized vision and believe that the Holy Spirit will use us to give praise to God and change this world!

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.
