Who We Are
Our Team & Leadership
Rev. Jared Kendall
Pastor Jared has a passion for making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and, in July 2019, was appointed to serve as Ridge UMC’s senior pastor. Jared and his wife Kate are from Warsaw, IN and took many trips growing up into The Region to catch a train to Chicago or spend time at the beach. They are thrilled their four children will get to experience many of those same memories.
Jared loves being with his family, spending time with friends, playing sports, and deepening his skills as a woodworking hobbyist. He is also a fan(atic) of Michigan Football and Duke Basketball. Hopefully you won’t hold that against him – too much!
But more than anything else, Pastor Jared has a deep love for Jesus Christ – the One whose table always has room for one more.
