He and his wife Carrie have been married for 12 years and have two children, Emma and Lane.  Jason grew up in Eastern Wake County and has called Martin County home since 2009.  Jason has been in ministry for over seventeen years serving churches in NC. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from North Carolina State University in 1998 and a Master of Divinity from Campbell University Divinity School in 2002.  Music plays a large role in his life – he loves to sing and play guitar and piano.  When he’s not at church, he enjoys spending time with his family.  His life verse is Romans 12:1-2: Therefore, I urge you, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship.  Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.
