Thank you for visiting JasonALowe.com. This site is meant to equip and encourage those who serve the local church. If that describes you, I hope you’ll find the content here to be helpful. Whether you’re the pastor behind the pulpit or a volunteer in the nursery, I want to provide practical resources to assist you and your church or ministry as you serve the Lord.

I have served in a variety of ministry roles within the church. Some of those roles were in a volunteer capacity; some were as a vocational minister. Since 2013, I have served as the Associational Mission Strategist for the Pike Association of Southern Baptists, a network of Southern Baptist churches located in southeastern Kentucky. In this role, I consult with pastors and other church members on a regular basis. In addition to this role, I also began serving as the Executive Pastor for First Baptist Church in Pikeville, in 2015. In all, I have been serving in vocational ministry for over a decade.

I have been blogging since 2015, but really began to post regularly in July 2020. Since that time, the readership of this website has grown to over 4,000 readers per month. I hope you will find my posts unique and helpful. The following are my Top 10 Most Read Posts of All-Time. As you can see, there’s something for everyone!

I was born and raised in Pikeville, KY, a small town in the Appalachian Mountains of southeastern Kentucky. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Statistics from Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, KY in 2001.¬†After working as a data analyst for several years and serving in my local church, God called me to vocational ministry. In 2011, I earned a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I have been happily married to my wife, Brandi, for nineteen years. We have two sons: Isaiah and Noah. In my free time, I enjoy writing, reading, landscaping, and cheering on the University of Kentucky’s football and basketball programs.
