  • Jordan Taylor - Youth Director

    Jordan has been Youth Director at Kish since 2017. He and his wife, Diana, have been married since 2012 and have a daughter (Petra) and two sons (Josiah and Jonah). He grew up in Michigan, a state known for being indisputably superior to both Nebraska and Illinois. Aside from his lame jokes, he enjoys video games, sports, and watching teens do dumb stuff. Jordan seeks to use his theological training from Moody Bible Institute (Chicago) and Western Seminary (Sacramento) to disciple teens, focusing on how Scripture is a unified story of God’s redemptive plan for humanity with the power to transform our lives.
