Jared joined the Lake Tapps family in July of 2020. He has a passion to see people take Jesus seriously in their life and to see the goodness of God flourish in our community. Though Jared grew up enjoying BBQ in Kansas City, his heart has always been in the west due to the landscape and culture. Jared loves being married to Rachael and playing with their 3 kids, Anne, Owen, & Emelyn (with another on the way). They relish the great outdoors as well as playing good board games and eating all sorts of food. Jared is also an avid reader of all genres, Star Wars nerd, and a fan of Chiefs football.
