Jason is married to Tasha, and father of Jakob, Mollie, Abigail and Samuel. Jason is a graduate of Liberty University with a Bachelors in Religion and Theology, and a minor in Christian Counseling.
Pastor Jason did not grow up in a Christian home, but in his mid 30's had his life, and the life of his family, radically changed by the power of Jesus Christ. Because of this, Pastor Jason firmly believes that Jesus has come to seek and save all. He also enjoys reading, writing, movies, laughing and spending time with his family.
Pastor Jason's hope for Community Evangelical Free Church of Mahomet is that we would be a family who know and worship God rightly, that in His majesty we would walk in compassion, mercy and grace and that both our minds and our hearts would be shaped by Jesus Christ.
You can hear Pastor Jason on WGNN/WGNJ, co-hosting for the Wednesday and Friday editions of Mark and Friends, airing at 7:32 a.m. and 7:32 p.m. (www.greatnewsradio.org). Pastor Jason also co-leads trips to Israel, including one in early 2020.
Jacob is first a follower of Christ and second a husband to Sarah. Pastor Jacob is a graduate of Lincoln Christian University with a Bachelors in Worship Ministry and is pursuing a Master of Arts in Theology at Lincoln Christian University. Jacob loves Jesus, his family, teaching, cream soda, a good cheeseburger, and bow ties. He has a fascination of history, specifically in the development of theology and philosophy over time and the context out of which they are born.
He grew up in a multiple generation Christian home and has vivid memories of sitting at the Sunday lunch table while his grandfather would poke and prod theological questions to his children (Jacob’s parents, and aunts and uncles). He was encouraged by his high school pastor to not just read the words of the Bible but to critically think about what he was reading; to not just read the words but read the meaning. And since then Jacob has had a passion for teaching people, specifically young students, to do the same.
