MEET OUR STAFF

JASON ROYSTON – PASTOR | jason@boonescreek.org

Hello, I am so glad you have dropped by Boones Creek’s website. I hope before too long that you and I can meet in person.
I grew up in Johnson City, Tennessee attending Science Hill High School, and East Tennessee State University where I majored in Business and found the most special person in my life, Mandy. Mandy and I have been married since 2002 and share our lives around 3 children Jeremiah, Sam, and Molly Kate.
I came to the knowledge of Christ as a young man but I am far from perfect. In fact, there was a period of my life that you might say I ran away or just denied the presence of God in my life. However, the grace of God brought me back to repentance in my college years. After college I began discipling younger men and ministry through the local church. God gave me a call in to ministry and the opportunity to attend training at Southeastern Baptist Seminary where I received an Master of Arts in Counseling and later Liberty Baptist Seminary were I received a Master of Divinity in Missional Studies. The Lord’s faithfulness has allowed me to serve 3 churches, 1 in NC and now 2 here in TN. Again, I would really love to see you in person, but most of all I hope God’s best for you with a walk in Christ.
