Description

Learn how YOU can make a difference in the Foster Care and Adoption Community.

Guest Speaker: Jason Johnson

Jason is a foster and adoptive father and regular writer and speaker on orphan care related issues. After growing up in a ministry home Jason began working at a church in college and spent nearly 14 years in pastoral ministry. In 2008 Jason planted a church in North Houston through which he helped co-found The Orphan Care Network, a non-profit committed to serving, supporting and equipping foster and adoptive families.

In 2013, with the combined church ministry and foster and adoptive experience, Jason began working for an organization helping church leaders implement structure, strategy and sustainable mechanisms of orphan care ministry within their churches. This ultimately led him to his current role as the Director of the National Church Ministry Initiative with Christian Alliance for Orphans.

Jason is the author of ALL IN Orphan Care and blogs regularly at www.jasonjohnsonblog.com. He has a deep passion to see the gospel catalyze a movement of orphan care within the Church around the world.

Jason and his wife, Emily, live in Texas with their four daughters and enjoy whatever it is they’re doing, as long as it’s together.
