Jay Crout is a native of Greenville, SC. He is a graduate of JL Mann High School (2003) and Clemson University (2006 and 2008) where he competed on the Men’s Swimming and Diving Team for five years. After working for 3 ½ years in corporate sales, Jay received a calling from the Lord to attend seminary in the Fall of 2011. He enrolled at Reformed Theological Seminary (Charlotte) in 2012 and recently graduated with his Master of Divinity in May 2015.
During seminary, Jay served in both an informal and formal capacity at the Greenville ARP Church which culminated in a 17-month internship from February 2014 – June 2015. He successfully completed ONA’s Church Planting Assessment Center in March 2015 and began his work as a Mission Developer Intern in July 2015. His position combines three of his greatest passions: church planting, the ARP Denomination, and the city of Greenville.
