Jedediah’s greatest passion in life is seeing people’s lives transformed through the power of Christ’s love. His life verses are 1 John 4:16, Galatians 2:20, and John 12:24 - "God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them", "My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me", and "Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies [to itself], it bears much fruit."
Jedediah received his Master of Divinity degree from George Fox Evangelical Seminary. More than anything, he loves to see people transformed and renewed from the inside-out, awakened to the indwelling presence of the Living God. Jed and his wife Lizette enjoy hiking and backpacking in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, with their 140-pound Saint Bernard, Eli. Jed is an avid reader whose influences include George Fox, St. Francis of Assisi, John Wesley, Irenaeus of Lyons, Brother Lawrence, and Thomas Kelly, among others.
