Jason and Emily have been married for 13 years. They have four children, Adalee is the oldest she is 12, Brantley is the only boy he is 10, Cyris Leigh is 7 and Daeyln Grace is 5. Jason has been the Pastor at two churches in South Carolina. At both of those churches, God blessed and the body of Christ saw growth from 25 to 200 and from 50 to over 350. At the age of 18 and his senior year, Jason surrendered to God’s call into ministry.
The verse God has used in the last few months as Jason and Emily have prayed for God’s direction is, “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses according to the riches of His grace, which he lavished upon us in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of His will, according to His purpose, which He set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.” Ephesians 1:7-10
My heart for Woodstock Church PCB is that we can be a community of believers who submit ourselves to the authority of scripture and give our lives away for the gospel of Jesus Christ! To be a place where people find deep, biblical community and, by the grace and mercy of God, invest their lives and gifts to see one another be daily transformed into the image of Christ.
