Jason serves as the Director of Church Planting and Associate Superintendent for the East Coast Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church. Along with recruiting, assessing, coaching, and resourcing a tremendously gifted and diverse family of church planters, he serves on the Covenant's four-person National Church Planting Team, shaping the larger mission for the US and Canada.
During his first five years planting has accelerated from the previous one church plant per year, to one every other month, with that rate of growth still increasing. This has resulted in planting over 20 churches in 5 years, primarily in the major metros of NYC, Greater Boston, DC/Baltimore, as well as Providence, Hartford, Virginia, and Northern New England.
In pastoral ministry since 1992, fresh out of college. A two year stint in youth ministry revealed a deeper calling to church planting, especially with emerging generations. The intervening years have included serving in five church planting settings, three of which in the lead planting role, primarily amongst urban cultural creatives.
Jason is husband to Lisa, and father of Jaron and Bryn, where they live in Eastern Connecticut.
