Leadership

Our church is led by a group of elders. These men have been called to care for and shepherd the church through teaching and preaching God’s Word, prayer and oversight. Staff elders serve in a full-time capacity and have assigned roles and responsibilities.

In June 1994, God radically changed Jason’s heart and he placed his faith in Christ. From that day, Jason began pursuing pastoral ministry. Upon completion of the undergraduate degree, he completed a three year Master of Divinity degree at Virginia Beach Theological Seminary. In 2008, he likewise completed the Doctor of Ministry in Expository Preaching from Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles.

Prior to serving at Randolph Street, Jason planted and pastored Providence Baptist Church in Columbus, Ohio for seven years. Jason and Ginger married in September 1995 and have three children (Ty, Olivia, and Julia). Jason’s main responsibilities as our lead pastor includes serving as our primary preaching/teaching pastor, leading our pastoral staff, elders and preaching team, and developing the overall vision and direction of our ministry.
