Why Pick Me? Learn About My Journey
Jason was 9-years-old when God called the little Black boy TWICE to ordained ministry on the way to the altar. He didn’t believe what he heard the first time, so She repeated Herself. Jason began planning and preparing to be a preacher. He preached during youth Sundays and nursing home services.
Once Jason realized he was gay though—ministry was no longer possible—thanks to his conservative evangelical church’s homophobic theology. Thankfully, an Open & Affirming United Church of Christ congregation would affirm his call.
That affirmation would lead him to a transformative experience at Chicago Theological Seminary, which revealed he was called to social justice ministry. Further discernment has established God is calling him to parish/social justice hybrid ministry.
This journey has taught Jason many lessons. He wants to share them with same-gender loving (SGL) people, LGBTQ+ people, and people of color–leaders or aspiring leaders–who just might be taking a similar journey and pondering their next step.
