Pastor Jarvis is orignally from St. Louis County, Missouri. After completing his undergraduate graduate degree at Concordia, Seward,  he went on to Concordia Seminary in St. Louis and was ordained in 1990. His first call was to Our Redeemer in Moorhead, Minnesota.  In 1993, he was called to serve Faith Lutheran in Menomonie, WI.  In 1999, he was called to serve Zion and the students of the University of Minnesota-Morris in Morris, MN. In 2011, he was installed as the pastor of Hosanna Lutheran in Buffalo. In 2017, Hosanna joined with Bethlehem Lutheran in Annandale to operate as a dual parish.  Pastor Jarvis still currently serves both congregations.

Other professional duties include: being a pastoral advisor with LWML, serving on the Wright County MEADA board, and serving on the board of the RSO Confessional Lutherans for Christ's Commission (CLCC).   

Pastor Jarvis and his wife Joanne have 4 adult children, 2 son-in-laws, and 1 grandson. They are working on navigating the Mississippi River from Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico, visiting all 50 states, and finding time to see (visit) their family, who like many others, "live long distance."

Pastor Jarvis still values the scene in Bo Giertz's book The Hammer of God where an old, experienced pastor, takes a fresh, new pastor aside, points out a window to the parish and says, "There's your teacher, my boy."  His years of pastoral ministry have been filled with constant learning, particularly how to be faithful to his call, and his vocations as a husband to Joanne and father (and grandfather) to his children.   He is always eager to learn more but also always eager to share what he has learned.  He is grateful to be Lutheran and convinced the faith as confessed in the Book of Concord is the faith Jesus taught his apostles.   He enjoys caring for God's sheep at Hosanna and Bethlehem, filling them with the Lord's gifts at worship, and then turning them out to serve their neighbor in their various callings.
