Jared Pulliam - Elder


Jared is the founding pastor of Christ Church. Jared and his wife, Julia, are both from the Pacific Northwest. They were married in 2000 and have four children. Prior to planting this church, Jared served on the pastoral team of Trinity Church of Portland. Since its founding, it has been Trinity Church’s goal to be instrumental in the establishment of new congregations in the city — a specific ambition that Christ Church also shares. When the time came to establish one of these new congregations, Jared and a core team from Trinity were privileged to start the new Gospel congregation of Christ Church in the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood.
