Jordan grew up in Pullman, WA, where he felt a call to ministry at the age of 17. That call took him to Corban College in Salem, OR, where he majored in Biblical Studies as well as began a life-long passion to minister to and disciple students. After college, Jordan began serving at Greater Gresham Baptist Church as a youth intern where he met his wife Taylor whom he married in 2010. In 2012, Jordan and Taylor were called to Kansas City, MO, where he served as Associate/Youth Pastor for seven years. While serving there they had their first daughter, Olivia, in 2017. Jordan knew God was not finished with him serving in Northwest and that plan came to fruition when Jordan came on staff at GBC as the new youth pastor in March 2019. They are excited to be back in the Northwest and have been blessed to have been welcomed and made a part of the church family so quickly.
Jordan and Taylor love to watch movies and TV shows together, cheer on the Portland Trail Blazers, read books to Olivia, and hang out with students at their school events.
