Jay is working on his B.S. in Religion at Liberty University with an anticipated completion date in 2014. He also has a Standard and Foundational Church Ministries Certificate from Paraclete Bible Institute, Severna Park MD in 2010.
Jay has worked as an Assistant Youth Pastor at Trinity Bible Church, 2008-2011 and currently serves bi-vocationally as a Store Manager at Extra Space Storage, and as an Assistant Children's Minister at Bethany Church Ellicott City campus.
Jay was called into ministry in 2008 when God directed him to pursue ministry instead of a degree in architecture. God has provided him with many opportunities to work with youth and children since he moved to Maryland, and impressed upon his heart the importance of reaching children. He has a passion for teaching the gospel and evangelism. Jay is blessed with a beautiful wife, Andrea, and a dog named Jag.
