HUSBAND. Married for 21 years, I am one of those guys who can honestly say, I love being married! I married my wife, Amy, on Saturday, May 18th, 1996. Since then, it has been an adventure like no other! I am passionate about marriage. It is truly a gift from God. And when fully experienced in the manner by which God created it, marriage is a perfect picture of God’s love, grace, joy, and mercy!
FATHER. I have 5; 4 boys & 1 girl. And they are amazing. They’re not perfect. But neither am I. Yet together, by God’s grace, we are building a family.
PASTOR. For over 25 years, I have served as a youth pastor. Student ministry has been a passion of mine since I was a student. There is nothing as exciting as watching a student discover God’s love and grace, and then leading them to find their God given purpose. Today, I serve as the Youth Director, at Hickory Church, in Western PA.
AUTHOR. I love to write. One of the ways I express that passion is through the avenue of children’s books. To date, I have written and published 5 children’s books, all available through Amazon! The books aren’t anything special. Just fun simple books for young readers. You can find my books using the links above.
But along with my children's books, I will be releasing a number of ebooks on the topics of student ministry, marriage, pre-marriage, and family life. Watch for titles and release dates on the resources page!
THE BLOGS. Along with JayHigham.com, I have created two other blogs. The first was the, Youth Worker Tip of the Day, a daily resource for youth workers. Monday through Friday, I posted a short, practical tip for those who work with students. Early in 2013, I decided to shut down the YWTD blog and relaunched, JayHigham.com, as a better way to continue the conversation with youth workers about student ministry. (Watch for past YWTD post to be published on an upcoming ebook.) The second blog was, The Good Husband Blog, a blog that discusses the adventures and lessons of being a husband, father, and man that chases after Jesus. I shut down that blog when my wife, Amy, and I decided to begin a blogging ministry for families. That was the beginning of TheHighamFamily.com.
