Although Jared grew up going to church, it was at 18 that he surrendered His life to Jesus. He says, “When I ran my life, I wrecked my life. When Jesus runs my life, it is thrilling. The King of Glory is running my life!” Jared has a love for Jesus and people, and wants to influence others to love Jesus and people. He served as a volunteer, intern, part time, and then full time youth pastor at the same church in Salem, Oregon for 18 years. In January 2014, the Vogts followed the God’s lead to Sisters. He now serves as Pastor of Teaching, Equipping, and Students, and loves life in Central Oregon. He is madly in love with wife, Crystal, and has three boys, Jayden, Joel, and Jackson as a result. His goals are to love and serve God and others, and spend as much time with his wife, boys, and anyone else possible enjoying the incredible outdoor playground God has made.
