Jared Dircks

JARED DIRCKS

Staff Intern
Jared Dircks grew up at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, went away and graduated with a 4-year degree in pastoral theology. God has burdened him to return to his home church where he will be joining the team at Mt. Zion as an intern in May 2017. Lord willing, he will marry Bethlie Hall on August 4th. We are thrilled to have someone who grew up in the church, who knows what he believes, and knows the people, returning to serve full-time at Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
