Jason and his wife, Suzanne, got married on March 21, 2020. Jason was born on a Hutterite Colony and spent the early years of his childhood there. When he was seven, his family left the colony and moved to Rosenort where he grew up. Jason moved to Winnipeg in 2014 and started working for a local electrical company, and continues to work with the same company to this day. Before coming to Grant Memorial, he attended a small church plant in St Boniface called Renaissance. There, he was a part of leading worship on Sunday mornings, helping set up, and helping out at their soccer drop in the community. Being a part of this small church challenged Jason to serve in areas that were beyond his comfort zone. In the few years he attended, he learned the importance of serving, being involved, building relationships, growing his heart to know God more, and helping others know Him deeper. Jason started coming to Grant in 2017, and began serving on the worship team, and helping serve in the young adult community. There were times when he was overwhelmed by serving in such a large church, sometimes he’d ask himself, “How can I make a difference?” but he was continually challenged and encouraged by the leaders of Grant and their example. The gifts he sees that God has given him, and is growing his capacity in, are service, encouragement, and showing mercy. God has been growing Jason’s desire to disciple those who are new or growing in their faith. Lately God has been bringing people to mind in times of prayer, and challenging Jason to encourage them and find ways to serve them in their walk.
