Rader FamilyJamie Rader began his ministry with the Spring Garden Avenue congregation in August of 2005. After working for nearly 23 years in the horse racing industry he turned in his saddle and he and his wife Chris, a horse trainer, packed their bags and left Florida to attend the Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies. Upon graduation he was recognized for his outstanding accomplishments in scholarship, dedication and influence by receiving the Academic Achievement Award, the Outstanding Student Award and the Robert McCandlish Memorial Award.

Chris has a degree in Animal Husbandry from the University of Kentucky. Chris now works as Dining Hall Supervisor at Mount Dora Christian Academy. She stays close to her love of horses by giving lessons and riding. Jamie can be found most mornings up before dawn getting in a morning run preparing for his next half-marathon, not because he's adding to his medal count, but it's the only chance he has of keeping up with their two kids, Jacob and Jordan!

We are truly blessed to have the Rader family with us. We hope you'll stop in for a visit and get to know them as well as the entire Spring Garden family.
