Jared is from Jefferson City, Tennessee, and a graduate of Carson-Newman University. He first visited Arrowhead Church in the summer of 2011 and has attended ever since. In the fall of that year, he was hired as a film freelancer and joined as the full time creative director three years later, in the summer of 2014.
As creative director, Jared focuses on communicating the message of the Gospel in concert with the ministries of Arrowhead as clearly and accessibly as possible. He develops the general communicative strategies under the lead pastor's direction, including graphic design, storytelling, film, social media, advertisement, websites, and merchandise - and leads our creative team.
A major component of Jared's job is to share stories of how people have been changed by Jesus. He is passionate about capturing the work of the Gospel on film and making the advancement of God's kingdom known to as many people as possible.
Jared's ideal day would include reading a good book and drinking an excellent cup of coffee (his favorite book is The Shape of Design). He loves to make things- whether a children's book, a dinning room table, something made of legos, or a music video. He hasn't had a bike wreck in 11 years.
