Jason Harrison which known to many as "J," others as a musician, liberal giver, and still others as a beloved father, devoted husband and loyal friend. Jason was born in Alton IL, on June 11, 1983. Two of three children born to Pastors Gregory and Eddie Mae Harrison, Jason Harrison were raised alongside a diverse array of siblings. He once mused, "People shouldn’t be judged off their past but their present state of mind." Add to this skill of mediation, a strict rearing under Pentecostal tenets, and the enduring of an early prayer life; it should become increasingly clear why God called Jason into the ministry at the tender age of twenty-two. His experiences nurtured his unique call to the youth which focuses on reconciliation, educational, spiritual and natural growth. Through motivational speaking he has widen spiritual and natural parameters in order to reach diverse people of manifold backgrounds, cultures, and denominations.
Jason attended Alton High School and went on to attain a Bachelors of Christian Studies in Theology from Sure Foundation Bible College and Associate of Biblical Studies from Midwest Theological Seminary. At the age of twenty-seven, Jason accepted his calling as Youth Pastor at Deliverance Temple Complex Alton, Il. Jason is still pursuing God in ALL things and hoping that everyone (Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, etc.) can join together with God’s UN judging love and Worship our Creator. Jason's greatest supporters are his lovely wife Kayla of 9 years and his 6 children Jabrea, Precious, Jay'Ion, Lakya, MayLena and Harlen.
