About My Family

Jason and his wife, Samantha, have a daughter, Isla, and two English bulldogs , Cromwell and Pippa.

About My Church Plant

Jason planted Church in the Wild in fall 2018. Before planting, he was a speaker in the Columbus area, teaching at different Bible studies, groups and churches several times a week. His messages are creative, yet thought provoking as he attempts to make the Bible clear to believers and non-believers alike. Jason said this about the vision of their church. "Church in the Wild is a multi-cultural church existing to go anywhere to tell everyone about the love of God. We value belonging and want everyone to feel welcome no matter their age or background. We want you to come as you are because we believe that you will never leave like you came."

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is person who, in response to God’s call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at “Send me.”


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains will serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit sendnetwork.com/PlanterFunding for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
