Hi, my name is Jared and I am the pastor of Oasis and it is a blessing for me to join The Church of the Lakes team and continue to build upon a strong foundation that has already been laid. If I could describe my faith journey in one sentence it would be this: “Jesus Christ met me in my brokenness and made me whole.”
Jesus Christ is in the profession of reconciling, redeeming, and restoring that which was divided, lost, and broken. It is my hope that as a Pastor, not only on Sunday morning but also during the week, I can provide people with opportunities and experiences that draw them into a relationship with Jesus and compel them to go deeper and deeper into that relationship.
The deepening of our relationship with Jesus more often than not comes as we love, encourage, challenge, and serve one another. That is what we offer at Oasis. We offer a faith community that takes seriously the need to love God, love others, and bring people to the Christ who reconciles, redeems, and restores.
Apart from serving Jesus in the church, I am blessed beyond comprehension with a beautiful family. I have been married to Meredith since 2003 and we have three children: Margaret, Elias, and Adelaide. I am from Buffalo, NY and am a huge Bills fan and just know that this is our year to win the Super Bowl!
I look forward to getting to know you as you walk through the doors at Church of the Lakes and participate in the Oasis service as we together learn more about our God and King and make him known to the world we will serve.
