Bio

My wife, Jennifer and I were married at Fielder in 1986.  Fielder is her childhood church, and it’s been our family’s church home since 1991.  We’re blessed with three biological children (all grown); each came to faith in Jesus through the ministries of Fielder.  We love Fielder Church.  God has allowed me and Jennifer to serve together for years in student, college, and young adult ministries as teachers and mentors.  It’s been fun to see God use our individual gifts work together as a couple.

I enjoy organizational development…….building the capacity to pursue a vision.  God has given me an affection for planning, problem-solving, processing, designing, and implementing.  So……basically, I’m an administrator.  For ten years before coming on staff at Fielder in January 2017, I served in two similar roles; Chief Operations Officer for an alliance of Bible Translation Organizations called Every Tribe Every Nation and Chief Operating Officer at Seed Company (an affiliate of Wycliffe Bible Translators).  I’ve traveled to over 30 countries, working with national leaders to assist God’s Church in the local context to translate God’s Word into languages that had not even one verse of Scripture before. God has changed my world view through these lenses.  The Acts are alive and well as the Church comes alive for the first time in unreached parts of the globe.  In parallel, the urgency is real as generations pass away having never heard the name of Jesus.

Here at home, God called Jennifer and me to foster parenting in 2015.  We didn’t expect it, but we’ve been obedient.  In turn, we’ve learned more about our marriage and our Savior than we could have imagined.  As Executive Pastor of Operations and Missions at Fielder Church; God allows me to participate in building the capacity to pursue His vision… to offer my gifts as an administrator, planner, implementer toward a vision bursting with missional focus; including reaching unreached people groups and caring for the orphaned.  Isn’t He good!

By the way, if you want to see us smile really big; ask us about our two grandchildren.

I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela but have called the USA home for the past 10 years. I have a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Carson Newman College (University) and a Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I sometimes compare myself to the Apostle Peter because of his hardheaded nature, nevertheless try to be more like Jesus every day. Aside from Christ, my two greatest passions are my family and my job. I love being a pastor as I can be used to speak truth from the word of God to people and see their lives be transformed through Jesus Christ, and to be used to have an impact for eternity. My calling from God came after a period of time in my life when I decided to walk away from God, but as I later found out, He had never left my side. After surrendering to the ministry, I met my wife, Andrea, in Tennessee and we've been married for almost 7 years! We have been blessed with our beautiful daughter, Alyssa, who was born in May of 2014.

God called me to Fielder Church in 2012 while I was still in seminary, and have been the East Arlington Campus Pastor ever since.

I’m just a slacker from Oak Cliff who is trying to be conformed day by day into the image of Jesus Christ.  It has taken a lot of schooling (some of it was far too expensive), an intense amount of love from those around me, and a two-year journey to Buenos Aires, Argentina to get me where I am today.  I’ve been married to my beautiful wife Virginia since 2001, and trust me, it’s a miracle she has put up with me for that long!  We have four incredible daughters who aren’t allowed to date until they are 42 and a son who brings some much-needed balance to the girl power in our house. 

I came to Fielder in 2005, doe-eyed and green, and this church has trained me well.  In August of 2016, I was humbled to assume the role of Lead Pastor of the church, a role I hope to fill for the next 30 years!

Here’s one thing I can tell you. God is doing marvelous things in our church and I’m a testament to the truth that God has a habit of blessing and using the stupid.  That is worth celebrating!

We’re loving this phase of life right now.  My wife, Elizabeth, and I have 2 high school kids and one in college.  We look forward to spending time with them by going camping in our pop-up camper, seeing them in their different school activities and just hanging out together.  I especially enjoy going out into our back yard by the pool, listening to some Disney park music and pretending that we’re on a mini vacation.  My heroes in life are Dr. Gary Smith (who helped raise me in ministry) and my dad.

I have my dream job here at Fielder.  I get to work with incredible volunteers and staff that love making disciples of Jesus Christ.  It’s one step at a time discovering where people are on their journey and helping them move one step closer to Christ.  We have been at Fielder for many years and I’m more excited about the ministry and vision of our church than ever before.   Every week is a new experience of encountering Christ and seeing how He will change my life and our community’s life to be more like Him.

My wife, Sandy, and I have been married since 1970. We have three children who have blessed our lives in so many ways.  Besides our relationship with Christ, our family is the center of our lives.  Our oldest, Drew, is already in heaven waiting on us to meet him there.  His death in 1986 has been used by the Lord to teach us a lot about God’s love and purpose.  Our daughter, Katy, is married to Steve, and is the mother of our 4 amazing grand-girls who bring lots of laughter and joy to us.  Our youngest son Matt is newly married to Melody.  It is a delight to watch them become a couple and build a Christ-centered home.

Sandy and I love Ranger baseball, travel and finding ways to enjoy our family. My heroes are Ronald Reagan, Damon Shook (my Pastor), and people who suffer loss and find the Lord in the midst of the tears.  I could eat Mexican food and ice cream for every meal.  I love and hate golf, just depending on my last shot, which usually means I hate it!  My favorite song is Never Once and yes, I cry every time we sing it!

I served 25 years as Senior Pastor at Fielder Church, and it has given me joy to see us become a New Testament church as I continue to serve as Teaching Pastor.  I am challenged to know and love our Lord more deeply and see Him at work in me.  My motto is to ‘live my life before an audience of ONE’ for His glory.  Pastoring Fielder Church has been the delight of my soul and yet I am equally excited to see God work through Jason!

Linda and I have been married since 1976.  We are empty nesters with three fantastic grown children and currently three precious grandchildren.  As you can tell from the word “currently” we hope for many more!  We absolutely love being grandparents and are always willing and able to keep them at a moment’s notice.  Linda is a second grade teacher at Little Elementary School and I have served on the Pastoral staff at Fielder since January of 1998.  The first four years of ministry at Fielder, I served as the Worship Pastor and then transitioned to become the Executive Pastor.  It has been the delight of my soul to lead and serve this amazing church staff in the role of Executive Pastor.   

If it’s on ESPN it’s worth watching!  I am a sports fanatic whose undying allegiance is with the Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks and Cowboys.  I am also an avid bass fisherman and fish competitively with the Fielder Church Bass Club.  When Fridays allow you can often find me with some friends playing golf.

I am a morning person who loves to get up early every morning to spend a few hours in study of God’s Word.  I love reading and am one of those weird guys who reads the morning paper cover to cover every day.  I enjoy books on leadership and management and never tire of reading books that instruct me on my walk with Christ and serving His church.   I am so honored and amazed that God has allowed me to serve the wonderful people of Fielder Church.  This church is amazing!  I love our vision, our missional heart, the diversity, the passion for worship, and the desire for life change that is evident each time we gather.  Even if I wasn’t an employee, I would choose Fielder over any other church I know. God has truly shown us His favor.
