Chil Min Dudes comprises of two men passionate about serving Jesus in the local church. One hails from Chicago, IL, the other from Newcastle in the North East of England… you can imagine the language barrier!

Jared Simpson is the Minister to Children & Families at Normandale Baptist Church in Fort Worth, TX. He has served there since July 2017 but has many years of experience both in the US and in his native England.
