Jared has a heart for bringing the Gospel to people and places of society that are often marginalized and distanced from the message of Christ. As the skate park coordinator, he incorporates his love for skateboarding, biking, hockey and music into living this out and making a difference in the lives of young people. The Deck is a place where worth and potential can be realised and the hope of Jesus can be shared with youth who would otherwise never have that opportunity.
Through building relationship and community Jared is able to walk alongside youth as they go through the ups and downs of adolescence, and support and encourage them as they search for identity. In a time where being a teenager is extremely difficult, Jared aims to be a consistent and caring presence in the lives of the youth that he interacts with.
