Jared & Ashley

Born in Michigan, Pastor Jared Michael moved to Baltimore when his father, Ed Michael, was offered the job of pastoring Westside Assembly of God. From a young age, he felt a call to give his life to serving the people of Baltimore. The idea for CityBeat Baltimore was birthed when Pastor Jared heard a sermon by Pastor Matthew Barnett of the Los Angeles Dream Center. After founding CityBeat Dream Center in 2015, Pastor Jared felt a pull to start a church in Baltimore City. Pastor Jared’s heart is to bring the hope of the Gospel to everyone he encounters. From the addict to the prostitute to the business leader, all are welcome and invited to encounter the love of Jesus. Jared got married in May 2018, and leads CityBeat Church alongside his wife, Ashley. Ashley graduated from Faith Bible College International in 2017 with a Bachelor’s in Theology & Bible Studies with a minor in Music. Pastor Jared and Ashley are excited to begin this new season of reaching Baltimore City together!
