JT Stead

Associate Pastor: Students and Outreach

JT was born and raised in Southern California where he grew up in a home with parents who loved God, taught their kids the gospel, and loved the church. In his 8th grade year, the Lord opened his heart and saved him at a student ministries summer camp. From that point on a love and passion for raising up the next generation, preaching, and the local church developed in his heart.  After High School he then attended a local community college and graduated from The Master’s University after 2 years with a degree in General Communications and a minor in Bible. It was during this time of serving, praying, and receiving counsel that the Lord called him to pursue full time ministry. The Lord by His providence would lead JT and his wife Kaitlyn to Rockford in June of 2017 to become the Student Ministries and Outreach Pastor at Redeemer.  Since moving JT started pursuing a Masters of Divinity online through The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. JT’s passion is to see students saved by the gospel of Jesus Christ and to see believers grow in their love for God and His church.
