Staff Pastor - Students and Music
Jared Berry was born in Hampton, Georgia and raised on the mission field in Amazonas, Brazil. At the age of twelve, Jared understood that his “righteous” deeds would not bring justification or merit salvation in the sight of God, and at that point turned to Jesus Christ in repentance and faith for salvation.
In 2004, God led Jared to The Crown College in Powell, Tennessee to further his education. He met his wife Elizabeth during this time and they were married in 2009. Jared and Elizabeth have been blessed with two sons, Owen and Miles.
From 2009 to 2010, Jared and Elizabeth served in youth ministry at Calvary Baptist Church in Hampton, Georgia. God then led them to Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee, where Jared was employed as athletic director, coach, and Bible teacher at The Crown College and Temple Baptist Academy; while Elizabeth served on the music faculty of The Crown College. In May of 2017, God opened the door for the Berry family to join Grace Baptist Church in Middletown, Ohio, where Jared now serves as Pastor of Student Ministries and Music Ministries.
