About Jared

Jared serves as the Senior Pastor of First Irving. He joined the staff in July of 2016 after spending over 8 years at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, TX. Jared holds degrees from Louisiana State University and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He is currently working on his Ph.D. in Preaching at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C. He is married to Jordan and they have two children, Jude and Julia.

Jared has a passion for preaching God’s Word and moving the gospel to the ends of the earth. His hope is that his ministry at First Irving will help this community of faith love the truth of God’s Word more fully and be more dedicated to its declaration all over the world. Jared loves LSU sports, specifically LSU football. Geaux Tigers! He also is a dedicated New Orleans Saints fan, which he understands is problematic to the people of Irving who love the Cowboys. He loves anything in the water: rafting, skiing, tubing; and enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, tennis, and golf.
