Jason Bowden

Pastor of Children and Oversight of Facilities

Jason, originally from Georgia, began serving at a young age in ministry. He volunteered in youth and children’s ministry and served on numerous short-term mission trips. He has a degree in industrial electricity and automated machine controls. After working three years in management in the commercial window industry, the Lord moved Jason into full-time missionary ministry at Heaven Sent Ministries here in Princeton. He served for 11 years as the Project Director leading mission trips, heading up logistics for large food packaging events and serving as IT director, among other things. He and his family were faithful members of Johnston Chapel during that time, serving in many of the children’s ministries. In January of 2018, Jason became the pastor of children’s ministries and also oversees the scheduling and maintenance of the church campus. Jason and his wife, Kristen, have four young children Sarah, Ella, Isaac and Hannah. They live in the country, just a stone’s throw away from the church.  Jason enjoys camping, shooting sports, hunting, and working with his hands.
