Go Teams Stories Contest

If you have experienced the life changing impact of traveling on a GO Team, then we want to hear about it!  How did you step out in faith? What fears did you overcome? What obstacles were in your way? How were you stretched? Have you been changed?

Perhaps you have never traveled on a GO Team, but you are already praying about traveling to one of our partner countries.  Why do you want to go? What impact do you hope to have on the people there? How do you hope to grow in your faith? We want to know about those stories as well!

Jered RothWIlson

Evangelism Pastor

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.
