Jason and Heidi are the leaders of Encounter God’s Presence. They have both been in full-time ministry since they were teenagers. Back in May of 2014, Jason & Heidi took a step of faith after much prayer, Godly counsel and confirmation to leave where they had served for 5 years (he as youth pastor & her as the worship leader). Not knowing if God was going to lead them into another church to serve on staff positions or what. But they are now pursing what God is putting before them with Encounter and are believing for continued supernatural provision to be able to that.
It’s so cool to see how God has been growing Encounter God’s Presence ministry. There has been so many salvations, rededications, emotional & physical healing, along with powerful prophetic words. Encounter not only has an annual youth camp (June) and an annual servant leadership retreat (Jan.) but now has expanded into a season of meeting in local homes and traveling to do city-wide rallies and ministering in churches on a regular basis. They are amazed by it all and always want to give all the glory to our Heavenly Father.
They enjoy being invited to guest speak and lead worship and usually bring some Encounter servant leaders with them (sometimes up to 30). There are Encounter Nights (worship, message & ministry) on a regular basis in the DFW area. Also Encounter city-wide youth rallies and Nights of Worship are brought to different cities & states and taking teams of individuals and church groups to mission trips to Belize and Jamaica. Many times their team involves full worship band, prophetic ministry, painting during worship, a rapper and/or a spoken word poet. Please go to “contact us” if your church or ministry is interested in hosting an event or needing us to serve in some way.
Jason attended Criswell Center for Biblical Studies and is a graduate of Emmaus Ministry School and has served as youth pastor & young adult pastor for 20 plus years. He loves raising up leaders and has shared at Christ For the Nation’s Advance School of Youth Ministry. They have ministered in numerous countries and enjoy relating God’s Word and His love in a very practical way with the use of multi-media and the arts. Discipling people in finding their destiny & identity in God is very important to them. They long to see children, youth and adults all find and walk in their spiritual giftings and do the ministry of Jesus.
Heidi has an amazing gift to lead others in worship and really connect with the Father’s heart. She first started in ministry as a children’s pastor and is also gifted in drama, the prophetic and so many other areas. Heidi went to Southwestern Assemblies of God University along with being a graduate of Christ For the Nations. She worked at C.F.N.I. for 7 years where she helped Y.F.N (Youth For the Nations) become one of the Top 10 Youth Camps in America at that time.
Jason and Heidi have been married since 2000 and have one cool son, Luke, who rocks their world (in a good way). He is really musically talented, he plays guitar, bass, drums and even plays the Veggie Tales song on the good ‘ole tuba.
Please join us in praying John 3:30.
