Pastor Jared Hostetler is married to his best friend Jennifer since 2002 and they are blessed with one amazing son Andrew. Pastor Jared has worked with elementary age kids since he was 17 years old including running his own business teaching sports to kids here in the Bay Area since the Fall of 2001. Jared has been at Almaden Neighborhood Church since the fall of 2007 and started working with the youth shortly after. Jared never pictured himself working with Junior/Senior high students, but God has changed his heart and now, he can’t see himself in any other ministry. His passion to see young men and women come to know the Lord and walk with Him daily is the driving force behind all he does.
Jared in early 2016 received his pastoral license though the Christian & Missionary Alliance. He still works with the students as he continues his pursuit of higher education and ordination.
Jared enjoys hanging with his family, sports of all types (especially basketball, go Pistons), camping, gardening, peanut butter cups, Oreos and mayonnaise (not all together).
