Jared has been coming to New Beginnings since moving to Kansas City from Boston, MA in July 2019. He moved away from his New England roots to the Midwest in order to attend Nazarene Theological Seminary, and is currently pursuing Masters degrees in Theology and Transformational Leadership, with a focus on higher education. He currently serves New Beginnings in both Youth and Media ministries, and has enjoyed every minute so far!
Prior to his Midwest living, he attended and graduated Eastern Nazarene College (Quincy, MA) in May 2019 with a BA in Biblical Literature and a concentration in Greek/Hebrew. He currently holds a local license at his home church, where he served for over two years as the Assistant Pastor for Worship Arts & Media. While at ENC, he also served in a variety of leadership roles involving worship and teaching ministries. Whenever he visits home, he makes sure to stop in to his church and lead worship or stop by ENC to teach a couple of classes for fun.
In his spare time, you can find Jared listening to music too loudly, watching The Office too much (fifteen times and counting!), cooking, cheering on his Boston sports teams (sorry!), or just having a good time.
