About Jason
  • Education: B.A. from Bluefield College, Bluefield, VA M.A. from Asbury Theological Seminary
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I often use a sermon style created by Paul Scott Wilson called "The Four Pages of the Sermon". One page of the sermon is given to each of the following areas of exploration: judgment or trouble in the world, judgment or trouble in the text, grace and solution in the world, grace and solution in the text.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: My grandfather sharing a story about WWII. He talked about he and a friend laying on their stomachs with the bottoms of their feet touching so that they would have a 360 degree view and could protect each other while fighting at Iwo Jima.
  • Family: I have a wife, Kyra and two children (one in Kindegarten and the other in preschool).
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They like them, but not as much as my grandparents.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is a big support but always honest when I falter or things don’t go as planned.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "Preaching is like throwing eggs at a brick wall. Eventually it might crack" - Ellsworth Kalas, President, Asbury Theological Seminary
  • Books that have had an impact: Moral Vision of the New Testament by R.B. Hayes Anything by Dietrich Bonhoeffer Anything by Eugene Peterson Simply Christian by N.T. Wright
  • Hobbies: running, reading and hiking
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: "One thing I know: I am a great Savior and Jesus Christ is a great Savior."
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I once referred to Asbury Seminary as Asbury Cemetary and the following week emphasized a main point by saying "but . . . and that’s a big but."
  • What I want on my tombstone: He bore the image of Jesus.

    People often measure righteousness and morality by comparing themselves to others. This sermon discusses a more accurate way to measure righteousness.

    *Scripture references from Luke are from "The Message". Scripture reference from James is from the NIV. We are going to take a silent moral inventory this morning. We are going to take a look at several pictures of famous figures and – as you see each picture – I want you to think about this ...read more

    C.S. Lewis once wrote that “The sins of the flesh are bad, but they are the least bad of all sins. All the worst pleasures are purely spiritual: the pleasure of putting other people in the wrong, of bossing and patronizing; . . . the pleasures of power, of hatred. For there are two things inside ...read more

    We can never gain an accurate measurement of our own morality and righteousness by comparing ourselves to other people. It’s a bit like measuring out a mile with a 12 inch ruler. Chances are the mile that you think you’ve marked out with that ruler won’t really be anywhere close to an actual ...read more

    A few weeks ago I spent a lot of time watching Ken Burn’s documentary called The War on PBS. The documentary ran for 7 nights and was about 14 ½ hours long. It chronicled the history of WWII not through the eyes of historians or professors but through the eyes of the men who served in Germany and ...read more
