Jason joined Redeemer as the lead pastor in February 2017. He has been in full-time pastoral ministry since 2005 and is a graduate of both the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Th.M.) and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (D.Min.). He is passionate about shepherding, preaching, and serving the church in a way that is God-centered, Bible-saturated, gospel-driven and grace-motivated. Jason and his wife, Karen, live in Plymouth with their four children, two girls and two boys. When he's not playing with his kids, he occasionally golfs, but always cheers for the Minnesota Vikings, holding out hope that they will one day win it all!
