This is NOT your typical Christian podcast. Our mission is to help boys become men and to help men become better men. Hosted by Itinerant Speaker: Jason George … it’s always raw, real, and relevant!
Jason grew up in an extremely broken and abusive “home.” When he was just 5-years old, his mother died of pancreatic cancer. Just a few months after that tragic event, his father remarried a disturbed woman who would not allow Jason to see his older brothers and sister. By the time he entered middle school, Jason struggled with anger, anxiety, and depression. He was also completely overcome by addiction. He hated his home life and stepmother. He desperately wanted to run-away and even struggled with thoughts of suicide. His inner-world was painful and dark, and there seemed to be no light at the end of the tunnel.
But God had a plan!
When Jason was entering the 7th grade, the constant fighting in his “home” was so bad that his father finally decided to move out, and Jason begged to go with him. A few days later, the two of them moved out and went to live with Jason’s older brother (Mark) whom he’d not seen or talked to for over 6-years. A few months later, Jason’s father decided to go live with his rich girlfriend, but Jason chose to continue living with his older brother, and he eventually became his legal guardian.
As one of the only white kids in his new public school, Jason literally fought to fit in. His 7th and 8th grade years were a continual struggle. So his older brother worked to make a way for him to attend a large Christian high school. Even though attending a large Christian high school was a much better environment for Jason, his heart still remained full of inner-turmoil.
But God had a plan!
Sitting in a chapel service during his junior year of high school, Jason heard a guest speaker preach the gospel (Evangelist Rick Gage). Typically, Jason was bored to death with school chapels and preachers, but on that day something (or someone) got his full attention …
“That day in chapel when Rick Gage was speaking … that was the day that God woke me up … that was the day that something definitely changed inside of me. Jesus was no longer just a historical figure. I suddenly had a new desire to start living for Him. So that’s exactly what I began striving to do … and I’m still striving to do that 25+ years later. I’ve definitely made a lot mistakes as a follower of Jesus. I don’t have it all-together … far from it … but I’m definitely not the same person I was. That day in chapel … God changed my life!”
Not only did God rescue Jason from spending eternity in Hell, but He also began healing and transforming him from the inside-out! Over the last 25 years, God has also used Jason’s story to bring hope and healing to thousands of young people all over the world. Jason’s life is living-proof of 2 Corinthians 5:17 … “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
Jason is a 1997 graduate of Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA … where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree with Concentrations in Youth Ministry and Biblical Studies.
