My name is Jared Bumpers, and I am 30 years old. I have been married to my beautiful wife (Kim) for over 9 years, and we have a beautiful daughter named McCartnie and a handsome son named Rush. I am a Christian who is committed to following Jesus Christ, and I love reading Christian books (especially theology books). I am a “SportsCenter” junkie (only during football and basketball season…it’s too bad that baseball season has to ruin SportsCenter for the summer), and I love playing basketball.
I am the Minister of Students at Crossway Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri, and I love working with students! I have an amazing group of students, and I am blessed to be able to serve them and serve alongside them. I have a B.S. in Pastoral Ministry and Bible from Baptist Bible College (2007), a M.Div. in Christian Ministry from Luther Rice Seminary (2010), a Th.M. in Biblical Studies from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (2013), and a D.Min. from Luther Rice Seminary (2013). I am currently a Ph.D. student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, and I love going to school (I am a nerd, I know!).
