With much excitement and joy Jason and Grethel joined the Harvest Bible Chapel (HBC) Winter Garden team in the late Spring of 2017. Jason says “We are so excited to see what God will do in greater Orlando and beyond through the ministry of Pastor Scott and Karla. God is on the move here and it is a huge privilege to be apart of it!" Previous to ministry in Orlando, Jason and Grethel were serving in Miami, FL. They first joined the HBC family in 2008 when Jason began an eight month church planting residency program in Harvest’s Training Center for Church Planting. During this time Jason developed a core group that would eventually launch HBC Miami. During their years in Miami they had the joy of seeing HBC Miami-West and HBC Holguin planted as well.
Jason has earned a Master of Divinity degree from The Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles, California. During their time in Southern California Jason and his wife, Grethel, served in Adult Ministries shepherding a small group at Grace Community Church where John MacArthur serves as Teaching Pastor. Jason has also earned a Master of Arts degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and his Doctor of Ministry degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Jason is most passionate about Jesus Christ and the radical change He has made in his life. He knows that God’s Word is alive and active and is capable of changing others as well. Because of this he preaches the authority of God’s word without apology. Jason matches this intensity with deliberate shepherding and the training of others to engage in ministry that God energizes.
