Jason has been coaching officially since September 2012. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University, which informs his coaching. After his own transformation around health issues, Jason began coaching around nutrition and wellness then quickly realized he needed a holistic approach and now coaches individuals around all aspects of their lives, understanding it’s all connected.
Calling himself a disruptive coach, based on a mentor’s training, Jason focuses on listening and helping disrupt the patterns we all find ourselves in. From 2012 until 2019, at least twice annually, and many times monthly, he put himself through a number of trainings and events to sharpen his listening and coaching skills. Jason offers a presence and brave space for each client to quickly establish trust and dive into the work needed to be done on each person’s behalf. In 2019, he became both Level 1 and Level 2 (Congregational Vitality) certified with ELCA Coaching. Jason is also working toward both his ACC (Associate Certified Coach) and PCC (Professional Certified Coach) accreditation with the ICF (International Coach Federation), including a specialty certification around grief and trauma.
Since March 2016, Jason is the NT-NL Synod Communicator. In 2018, the synod added Assembly Planner to his role. In 2019, he was also appointed by the bishop as the Coaching Coordinator. Also in 2019, Jason began two contracts with the ELCA to manage the ELCA Coaching website and provide administrative support to the ELCA Coaching Coordinator, leadership team, trainers, and that growing ministry.
