Hey there! My name is Jarred, and I have had the privilege and honor of serving as the Teaching Pastor of a church plant in Northeast Arkansas. It’s been an unbelievable journey with enough trials to test my faith and call, but also with immeasurable joy to see God change lives and draw people to Himself.
I have a wife of ten years; Krista, and my son, Ethan who is currently six years old. We all live together and have fun together in Newport, Arkansas.
WHY I WRITE
Ever since I was born-again in late 2011, I have had a strong desire to help people walk closely with Christ, and that’s why this blog exists. To serve the Church (the global expression of the church). I think that God has given me a unique set of gifts to serve His people and urge them to greater obedience and freedom in Jesus. In simpler terms, to live a life on purpose, pleasing God and with great intention.
HOW I CAN HELP
My favorite question! I think that if I were to put it in one pithy statement, it would be this: We need practical solutions to complex issues in the Christian life. In order to solve this, I aim to bring content that both addresses real issues, break down their complexities, and offer practical solutions to resolve the tension between it all. As good as this sounds, it still requires the reader to be a devoted disciple of Jesus. If your approach to Christianity is minimalistic and frail, then this will not be a good place for you. However, if you desire to walk with informed intentionality, trackable growth, and deep impact on those around you for the Kingdom; well, this is the place for you!
