Worship Leader Jared Anderson visits SAGUWaxahachie, Texas — December 4, 2012 — Worship leader and musician Jared Anderson led worship in Southwestern Assemblies of God University's (SAGU) chapel service on Wednesday, November 14.

“Worship songs are prayers. We’re reciting the word of God back to him, and pretty soon we’re not just reciting it or singing it, we’re living it,” says Anderson.

Jared Anderson is a worship leader residing Colorado Springs, Colo. where he volunteers at New Life Church. Anderson is a former member of Desperation Band and has written many popular worship songs, such as "Great I Am" and "Rescue." He has released four solo albums: "Where to Begin" (2006), "Where Faith Comes From" (2008), "LIVE From My Church" (2009) and "The Narrow Road" (2012).

In addition to leading worship during SAGU chapel, Anderson and his team also held a Q&A session and songwriting workshop. SAGU students, musicians and worship leaders from local churches attended the sessions.

Anderson's wife, Megan, is a SAGU graduate. She received a bachelor's degree in elementary education. Jared and Megan have four children: Everet, Becket, Francie and Lyla. The Andersons are in the process of adopting two children from Haiti. The couple keeps a blog on the progress of the adoptions, documenting struggles and successes during their journey.
