Jordan and Brad met on the campus of the University of Oklahoma. They were both theatre majors in a department that was fairly void of Christians. However, through the Lord’s guidance and provision they were able to build each other up as fellow believers in His grace. They lived as roommates in college and have remained best friends since graduating. Brad, his wife Rachel, and daughter Olivia live in the DFW area, where Brad teaches HS Special Education. Jordan, his wife Lara, and son Zeekiel live in Ellensburg, WA where Jordan serves as the Ministry Coordinator for SALT, a college ministry at the University of Central Washington.
Far From Ordinary grew out of a dream to use our talents for the Lord. We were told in college that as Christians we would have a hard time “making it” in the acting world . . . the Lord is proving that theory wrong and we praise Him for that. We are based out of Dallas (even though Jordan lives in Ellensburg, WA) and we are excited to see what the Lord is going to do next. The Lord is in control, we are simply along for the ride.
