Our Pastor

Pastor Jared’s mission is to challenge the Middletown Springs Church community to treasure Jesus above all else and to shepherd them into the mission of proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God.

Jared is married to Becky, and they have two daughters: Macy and Grace.

Although a native of Texas, in 2006 Jared planted Element Church in Nashville, Tennessee. But in 2009 he and his family followed God’s call to the great Green Mountain State, joining the community of Middletown Springs.

A graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, where he received his Bachelor of Arts in English, Jared has been a minister and freelance writer for nearly twenty years. He is the author of more than ten books, including Your Jesus is Too Safe, Gospel Wakefulness, Gospel Deeps, The Pastor’s Justification and the Bible study resources Abide, Seven Daily Sins, and Knowing the Bible: Romans, as well as an assisting author to Matt Chandler’s The Explicit Gospel and To Live is Christ. Jared is also a frequent speaker for events and conferences.
