is a writer, teacher, designer, artist, creator of communities,
listener, and explorer.
He currently serves as the Group Life Director, Student Ministries
Director, and Lead Designer at
Capital Christian Center
in Sacramento, California.
Jason develops communities where loneliness can be cured and life can be lived, together.
He is a community architect with a focus on the use of technology to aid groups/ministries in reaching their goals. He is skilled at integrating groups and technology and guiding them to use technology to reach their goals, technology that often at the time of introduction was unknown to them.
Jason has been engaged in community leadership for fourteen years, specifically focusing on meeting the needs of at-risk students. This has made him unique in a field known for its high turnover rate. He’s stayed passionate to changing the lives of young people. And to this, he also adds a sought-after grasp on the culture of today’s youth.
Prior to going to Capital, he taught literature at a private high school outside of Chicago. It was through teaching that he first explored the power of small groups of people impacting their community. Today, Jason has developed hundreds of small groups of connected individuals with the purpose of impacting their local community and addressing the needs around them. Just in the last year, these groups have been involved in homelessness relief efforts, community cleanup efforts including rebuilding of playgrounds, efforts to educate on AIDS, raising support to provide clean water to drought-impacted communities in Africa, and more. Currently, he is involved in developing community service groups focused on bringing together individuals of different faith backgrounds. He continues to train community group leaders to reproduce this work. He has written several articles and guides on the individual and community transforming effect of group connections.
Jason and his wife Karen have just had their third child and first daughter. He earned his B.A. in Language Arts at Chadron State College in 1998.
