Jared Bangs

My name is Jared Bangs. I was born here in Ventura and have lived here for most of my life, aside from a few brief stints in New Zealand and Hawaii. I have been happily married to my wife Martha since 1995, and we have three amazing adult kids. I am a software developer professionally, and I enjoy board games and other (non-derogatorily) “nerd” hobbies.

I helped plant and lead worship at a Vineyard church in Hawaii in 1996 and another church called The Bridge in Ventura in 1998. I currently also serve on the worship and tech teams at the Ventura Vineyard, and in doing so have grown deeply connected with the people of our church, many of whom I consider as close as family. I believe we are honest about our imperfections and in our desire to love and serve better as we grow.

If you visit Ventura Vineyard, I hope and believe that you will find an intellectually honest, emotionally supportive, and spiritually engaging environment in which you can become part of a community that seeks to authentically live into the faith that we hold.
