ABOUT

I've been blogging an assortment of rants, reflections and randomness since 2001.

I studied urban ministry at Hesston College and received a Master of Arts in Global Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary. My work in establishing missional communities has been profiled in books such as Jim and Casper Go To ChurchStreet CrossersEmerging Churches and Emerging Worship.

I served on the staff of a church plant in San Diego before my wife Brooke and I partnered with others to start missional communitiesChristian communities that exist for those who cannot, or will not, participate in a traditional church. After starting several communities, serving on the staff of two churches and consulting several others as they started new faith communities in Southern California, our family moved to Washington, DC where I served the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. We became members of the Episcopal Church during our time in DC.

We now live in Houston where I work for the Episcopal Diocese of Texas helping others start new Christian communities and teach mission theory and practice at the Iona School for Ministry. I also host the podcast A New Thing and co-host The Shape of A New Thing to Come

My wife and I are high school sweethearts with three amazing kids. I love a good record, a good book and a good cup of coffee. Chips and salsa are my kryptonite.

You can find my resume on LinkedIn.

Here's what a few kind people had to say about my work:

“Jason and Brooke Evans practice what they preach and now are preaching what they practice. They are front line followers of the way of Jesus, fearless explorers and clear eyed mapmakers. The future of the church is secure in the hands of leaders like Jason and Brooke. They’ve been given every reason to walk away from the craziness associated with what we’ve come to call church. Again, they said no. They care to much about Jesus’ people to let the religious foolishness we’ve come to think of as “normal” to dissuade them from self-identifying as Christians.”
– Jim Henderson, author of Jim and Casper Go To Church and Evangelism Without Additives

"In my experience, Jason is uniquely gifted and called to connect with people who are weary of the classical institutional church but are open to the way of Jesus. The kind of people who would never darken the doors of our church but who want to learn to follow Jesus. This is a rare, but invaluable gift and calling that deserves our passionate support."
– Shane Hipps, former Teaching Pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church and author of Selling Water By The River

“What Jason understands is that the gospel is a response to a particular context and not a set of abstract ‘truths’ … Jason’s understanding builds on the works of Dallas Willard and N.T. Wright who asserted that the gospel is that we get to participate with God in the redemption of the word … Our gospel is one that welcomes others to share in the joy of this in breaking movement of God … ”
– Dr. Ryan Bolger, co-author of Emerging Churches, Associate Professor of Church in Contemporary Culture School of Intercultural Studies

“I was extremely refreshed to listen to what is happening in these … gatherings. Without a doubt there is an absolute sense of these churches viewing worship as something that occurs not only when they meet together, but all week long. There is no doubt of the church being the church and not being a meeting people attend. Quite honestly it really does feel extremely close to what the New Testament church must have been like.”
– from Emerging Worship by Dr. Dan Kimball, pastor of Vintage Faith Church
