Pastor Jason Knight and his wife Holly
Pastor Jason Knight was raised in the Midwest and received ministry training at Northland Baptist Bible College. Both he and his wife Holly grew up in ministry homes, trusted Jesus Christ to be their Savior as children, and as teens, they each surrendered their lives to God's leading. Eventually, God led them together and to a life-calling of Christian ministry, and in 1999, they were married. In 2005, after serving in ministries in Colorado and Michigan, the Knights moved to Ohio to plant Heartland Baptist Church.
Jason believes the Lord brought him to Marysville for the cause of the Great Commission, the foundation for his ministry-philosophy:
To Evangelize the Lost
To Stabilize and Strengthen the Saint
To Multiply Servants for God’s Harvest Field
For him, this is best accomplished through preaching and teaching the Word of God, loving pastoral care, and prayer. His desire is to see Heartland mature into a church-planting, missionary-sending church.
The Knights see their family as a significant part of their calling. They have five children - Josiah (20), Taylor (18), Jonathan (17), Lauren (14), and Karis (9).
