Jared Crabtree

What is your job?
I am the Director of Student Ministry.

What are your responsibilities?
I’m responsible for overseeing discipleship and community with our 6th to 12th grade students to see young people meet Jesus, mature in their understanding of the gospel, and connect them to the life of the local church.

Family?
I married my best friend Michelle in June of 2010. We welcomed our first child, Samson, into our family in June of 2011 and God doubly blessed us with twin girls, Maggie and Grace, in August of 2013.

Where are you from?
I’m a lifetime Kansas Citian. We have lived in Westport since we’ve been married and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

Education & Experience?
I graduated with a degree in Psychology from UMKC in December of 2009. I graduated Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in May of 2015 with a Masters in Theological Studies. Hopefully, I’ll never have to write an academic paper again.

How long have you been at Redeemer?
Since June of 2008.

What hobbies/interests outside of work?
GO CHIEFS! GO ROYALS! Fantasy football fanatic. I really enjoy watching MMA (mixed-martial arts), playing basketball, and playing the drums. I love traveling, and have visited 39 of the 50 states, Canada, Peru, and Guyana. I love new experiences and I’m a nerd so I’m always up for exploring things like historical landmarks, attractions, and museums in new cities.
