Hey friends! My name is Jared Holmes and I am the Youth Minister here at FBC. I have been in ministry for many years, starting around the age of 16 as a volunteer in the church I grew up in, Calvary Baptist Church, in Odessa Texas. I went on to become the Children’s Ministry intern at Life Change Baptist church in Odessa Texas and served there until God called me to go to Dallas Baptist University. While at DBU, I served as a Children’s Ministry intern at the Oaks Baptist Church in Grande Prairie. I served at the Oaks Baptist church until God provided an opportunity to serve here in Bridgeport. I served here as an interim Youth Minister for a few months and became the full time Youth Minister in October of 2015.
I graduated from DBU in 2017 with a degree in Biblical Studies. I am currently attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in pursuit of my Master’s Degree in Christian Education with a focus on Administration.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my Meredith, son Oliver, hanging out with students, playing guitar, and working out or playing sports.
