There will always be a need for the Word of God to be shared with others. It needs to be taught to the lost as well as Christians who have already obeyed the gospel. After the first Christians obeyed the gospel in Acts 2, we see they continued to listen to the apostles teaching. With the later epistles from Paul and Peter, we see that the church continued to receive teaching. Paul even wrote "minister letters" to Timothy and Titus, who were working for the Lord as preachers.
Jerid calls himself a Kansas City kid, as he grew up in the Northland throughout his childhood years. From college onward he's been well traveled, to say the least. Jerid was blessed to be raised by Christian parents and has been equally blessed to find a good Christian woman, Laura, to be his wife. Jerid & Laura welcomed their first child, Evelyn, in 2015 and hope to raise her with a love for God as each of their parents raised them. Following years of secular work and prior to working with Sterling Avenue, Jerid worked in a preacher training program with the Douglass Hills church of Christ in Louisville, KY. It's always Jerid's goal to preach objectively from God's Word and His Word alone. He never wants opinion or preference to be found in his teaching and always invites any questions or comments (whether about his sermons, classes, or just a Bible/spiritual question) you may have!
