UPDATE!!!!Our church family is giving praise to God for bringing Jason Elvington to HPBC as our new Youth Minister. He along with his wife Elizabeth have already made a huge impact on our youth and church in just one Sunday. God's work was confirmed by a unanimous vote from our congregation to call him for the part-time position. Jason plans to begin his ministry here on Sunday, July, 14th. Thank you Youth Minister Search Committee for your tireless efforts, prayers and support. God is Good!
The Youth Minister Search Committee is excited to present Jason Elvington to our congregation for a vote on June 9th as our Youth Minister. Any youth or parents that would like to meet Jason and his wife, Elizabeth, may come to the youth Sunday School room on the 2nd floor between 9:15 - 10:15 am. Jason will teach the youth during that hour. Everyone will get to meet Jason and hear his testimony during our morning worship service at 10:30 AM. A vote will be taken after worship.
Jason D. Elvington
Born: August 19, 1988 / Wife: Elizabeth (married August 11, 2012)
Jason has a vision to see youth, and their families receive salvation and become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. Through teaching in small and large group settings, building one-on-one relationships with youth and parents, and teaching the importance of Christian community and fellowship, he hopes to see families grow spiritually and those outside the church come to know Christ. Jason knows he must meet students in their place of life, care for them, instruct them in the faith, help them learn to share the faith, and prepare them for the next stage of life. Furthermore, his prayer is that the students would experience the joys of the Christian life as they have meaningful fellowship with all members of the church both young and old.
