Jay Sias is our youth pastor, overseeing middle school and high school students. Originally from the Midwest, Jay became a believer as a young teen and soon after felt the call of ministry on his life. This led to his leading worship, preaching in youth revival camps, mentoring students in youth groups, and eventually serving as an Associate/Youth/Worship Pastor at New Hope Christian Community Church in Illinois. He also has a degree in Pastoral and Biblical Studies, as well as a Masters in Biblical and Theological Studies from Moody Bible Institute. Jay is passionate about discipling and developing young people, both through shepherding and teaching.
Jay and his wife, Bethany, who attended bible college herself, got married in 2016. They have two Golden Retrievers named Honey and Zeke. They’re looking forward to being close to the ocean, exploring the new area, and getting to know the Heritage family!
