Jason and Kerri have felt a calling to be missionaries since they were young and have always had a heart for helping others get to know God and experience his unending love for them. It is their desire that all people would experience a life changing connection with Jesus Christ.
In January 2014, after living in an RV for 10 months and travelling the East Coast, they arrived in Chiang Mai with their 4 children, Faith, Rylan, Addison and Eaden.
Kerri first came to Thailand on a short term trip to ZOE in 2011. It was then that she felt the Lord calling her family to move to Thailand. When she returned from her trip, she and Jason began praying together about God’s will for their family and the possibility of a move to become full time missionaries. They both knew without a doubt that this is what God was asking them to do and they were more than willing to go. Jason made a trip to Thailand in July of 2013 and God reconfirmed to him that this is where He was calling them.
At ZOE, Jason is the Facilities Manager, providing hands-on leadership and training to the Thai staff for the maintenance and upkeep of all facilities and equipment that belongs to ZOE , as well as overseeing new construction projects. Jason will also be teaching at the ZOE Ministry School. He also enjoys spending time and encouraging both the male Thai staff and the youth boys.
Jason attended a 2 year Bible College and also has an AA in Business Administration. He has held a plethora of jobs including successfully managing and operating different personal business’ , office manager /accountant for the Australian Consulate in Honolulu, Hawaii, project manager on various renovation projects and working for a local credit union. Jason has also been involved in the ministry for many years, serving as a youth leader and lead audio visual technician at his church. Jason has a heart for reaching the lost and also for the next generation of young men to realize their identities in Christ.
Kerri proudly served in the US Navy for 12 years as an Electronic Technician before getting out in 2012 to become a stay at home mom. She recently received her BS in Early Childhood Education from Liberty University and will be pursuing her Master’s in Family Counseling from Liberty as well.
