Jared Verwiel

Senior Pastor

Jared was raised with 3 other siblings in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Sports was a major part of his identity before becoming a believer. He competed at everything from basketball to baseball to ping pong with his brother.

In middle school, Jared started golfing and got involved in the golf business, which is what took him to Mississippi State University. Moving 750 miles away from his home and everyone he knew was one of the humbling moments God used to get his attention.

Growing up, Jared occasionally attended a local Catholic Church and, other times, went to a charismatic church with his mom. Some version of the Gospel was shared in those churches; however, it wan't until his Freshmen year at Mississippi State that his brother articulated the Gospel in way he understood it. He placed his faith in the finished work of Jesus on the Cross that year.

After earning a BBA from Mississippi State, Jared was married to Brandy in their college town of Starkville, MS. Before heading off to Dallas Seminary, where he completed a Th.M. with Old Testament Major, Jared served 2 years in college ministry. His ministry experience includes 3 years as a college pastor, 5+ years near Wichita, KS as a Senior Pastor, and serving in that same role here at Tulsa Bible Church since November 2018.

Brandy and Jared have 3 kids: Henry, Ethan, and Kennedy. They enjoy sports, raising the family hound dog, Reba, playing games, and watching movies. His favorite author is CS Lewis and Jared loves teaching Old Testament narrative books the most.
