Jordan spent the first part of his childhood in New Jersey. He subsequently moved to Portage, Michigan as an eighth grader, where his family has lived ever since. He attended University of Michigan in Ann Arbor as an undergraduate student, where he became immersed in the faith and subsequently accepted Christ into his life. He currently attends Wayne State University where he is a medical student, and lives in Midtown just a stone's throw away from church. What Jordan loves most about Redeemer is the commitment to digging deep into the meaning of the Scriptures, yet at the same time applying such Scriptures to a modern, urban context.
