Jared grew up as a missionary kid in Managua, Nicaragua. As a child he listened as his parents “painted a picture” of who God is and what Christ had done in their lives and how valuable He is.
Jared’s interest in music started at a young age. However it did not become his passion until God revealed Himself to Jared during his teenage years. All of a sudden music became the way that he could “paint a picture” to those around him of what he holds so dear, Christ. Since then Jared has not ceased desiring to lead others to see Christ’s glory and truly worship Him for who He is and all that He has done for us.
Jared’s wife, Olivia, was also a missionary kid in Nicaragua. He fell in love with her during their junior year of high school, and the rest is history. Eight years, and two kids later they find themselves living in Hixson Tennessee and serving the body of Christ at The Gathering. Desiring that Christ use them to glorify Himself through all they do.
“I will sing to the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have being.” (Psalm 104:33)
