Jed Surdyke

Jed was raised the second oldest son of a wonderful Catholic family in Festus, Missouri. His parents Matt and Jennifer put five children through Catholic education from start to finish, which, looking back, has been such a blessing. Sometime around the beginning of High School, he began to fall in love with Our Lord and the richness of His Church. And since then, Jed has been on a beautifully unexpected journey that has brought him here to the Jesuit Spiritual Center. After finishing high school, he became deeply involved in Campus Ministry at Rockhurst University, using his gifts of music and leadership to help bring others to Christ. While there he studied Philosophy, Theology, & English. And while he never imagined being called to a retreat center out in Milford, Ohio, nevertheless, here he is, and for that he is sincerely grateful.
