Founded in 2012 by Jared Groenewegen (GREW-nu-wagon) with the mantra that believers are all children of God who have been rescued from sin and death, which is where the name was born from.
Jared started the band when he graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia with a degree in Worship and Music Studies. He believes that one of the best ways to connect with people is through music and entertainment, and therefore started the band as a way to connect with people.
Jared not only performs with All Rescued Children, but he also does stand-up comedy, opening for such comics as Steve Geyer, Matt Falk, and Leeland Klassen.
All Rescued Children's goal is to meet people where they are, and bring them the light of Christ. The band strives to be Spirit sensitive in their performances and follows the Spirit's guidance to reach the hearts of the audience.
In 2014, Jared produced two songs, "Bless the Lord" and "Children of God," in 2014.
All Rescued Children's first release in 2017 was "Let It Go" - April 17, 2017, recorded at Wallsdown Studio in Owen Sound, produced by GI Holm. It is receiving national radio airplay across Canada.
