“My heart breaks for people who have been burned by or feel excluded from the church. I go about ministry constantly asking the question: what is going to bring them into a closer relationship with Jesus?”

Pastor Jason was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Central Dauphin High School (1998) and Lebanon Valley College (2002) where he double majored in Historical Communications and Spanish. In the fall of 2001, while studying abroad in Salamanca, Spain, he had a profound call experience, which he finally accepted in the Spring of 2003 while on his Walk to Emmaus. From 2004 to 2008 he attended Evangelical Theological Seminary in Myerstown, where he received his Master’s of Divinity in Congregational Leadership. He was then became an ordained elder in 2012.

In August 2007, he accepted his first interim appointment to Stephens Emmanuel UMC (a Latino congregation in Allison Hill) before being moved in January 2008 to CrossPoint UMC (a multi-site church in the Harrisburg area) where he led the South Hanover campus for seven years. On July 1, he came to Trinity UMC, Hummelstown.

Pastor Jason’s family is an essential part of his ministry and includes his wife, Christy, and sons Eli and Christian. Pastor Jason is a passionate learner of Andy Stanley and Catalyst. He has studied under Adam Hamilton and Mike Slaughter as part of the Young Pastor’s Network and is a Lewis Fellow through Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. In 2012, he was the recipient of the Harry Denmen Evangelism Award for his work with CrossPoint to launch the Perking Point, a coffeehouse ministry based upon Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse in DC.
