Jared Kirk is the Lead Pastor of Renewal Church. He has a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Miami (FL), and a M.A. in Religion from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He has been involved in full-time ministry over the last seven years as a Campus Teaching Pastor, Adult Groups Pastor, and Student Pastor, including serving with a team of planters that started Next Level Church in Charlotte, NC. Jared is passionate about teaching people to live out and experience the good news of Jesus in every area of their life.
He and his wife Heather have been married for eight years. They have three kids: Jude, Hattie, and Amelia. They moved to Boston in early 2013 to plant a church for the glory of God and the good of the city. They chose Boston because cities are strategic centers of cultural formation, and Boston in particular is the most influential city, for its size, in the world.
