About Jared

Jared Lilly serves as a husband to Hannah, father to McKenna and Abigail, children’s pastor to First Assembly of Gastonia, North Carolina, and host of The Kidmin Rocks Podcast.


Jared has served in children’s ministry since he was allowed to help with sound as a child and  he hasn’t left since! He is passionate about mentoring relationships. Despite his time at Lee University and his credentials with the Assemblies of God, he credits his greatest education to his mentoring relationship with his children’s pastor. 


Jared counts it an honor to also serve as a speaker at various children’s ministry conferences and camps. In addition to sharing the Gospel, he strives to share practical, next-day applications to the kids and leaders that he serves.


Whenever he isn’t serving in ministry, Jared likes to play music, watch Dallas Cowboys football, or take the short drive to Charlotte, NC to take in the Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Hornets, or some of the other local sports.
