Jason came to Christ at the age of 16 years old. In the summer of 1996 Jason married his true love, Jennifer, after meeting her while starting The Northeast Ohio Christian Youth Chorale. Jason has been involved in ministry for many years serving many different positions including youth ministry and church planting. While working in the business field Jason worked at the Little Tikes Company and for TTI Inc. (Hoover and Dirt Devil vacuums). His experience also includes the aft mentioned Northeast Ohio Youth Chorale a Christian youth choir where he was the founder and co-director with his wife Jennifer. Jason holds a Masters of Christian Ministry from Harvest Net Institute, a Campus Crusade for Christ seminary. Pastor Jason is also on the Board of Directors for HarvestNet Ministries, and serves as the National Executive Director for ASAP America (All Schools Assembly Program), and also still occasionally does website consulting.
Jason and Jennifer have two children (Zachary and Rebekah). They are also blessed to be "Papa and LALA" to two grandchildren! They reside in Ravenna Township with their dog Rue, a rescue, and their honey girls... aka Honey Bees! . When not engaged in church work, you might find Jason on the golf course, hiking the woods of West Branch looking for Cory (see below), boating and swimming with the family, or just enjoying the outdoors.
Pastor Jason loves social media and is a huge Cleveland Browns fan as well as all Cleveland sports. He has been known to pray for and deliver the evil spirits of the ones who disagrees with his selection of football teams! He also loves music (one of the things that drew him to Jennifer) and especially Christmas music. Yes Virginia it is ok to listen to Christmas music outside of December! :-)
Finally Pastor Jason believes in the fine balance of humor and seriousness. Just in case you were wondering we like to have fun at Passion!
