Jared has served in vocational ministry in Southern California since 1996 beginning at Cornerstone Bible Church in Glendora. From those first few years of ministry the Lord began developing in him an ever increasing love for people and desire to see them come to know and rely on Jesus Christ. He has the unshakable conviction that the message of the gospel found in the pages of the Scripture is humanity’s one and only hope for both this life and the next. He is committed to Christ-centered biblical preaching, teaching and counseling, and wholeheartedly believes the Bible to be the authoritative, inerrant and infallible word of God. Jared is passionate about preaching the Bible with clarity, relevance and enthusiasm and looks expectantly for its positive and lasting impact on people’s lives. Jared holds a Master of Divinity degree from Talbot School of Theology (2007) as well as undergraduate degrees in Christian Ministries and Biblical Studies from Azusa Pacific University (2000). He also has a ministry credential through the Evangelical Free Church of America.
