Fr Jason Collins

Fr Jason Collins

The Rev. Jason N. Collins has the unique privilege and perspective of having been a member of St. Paul’s for 15 years before he became an ordained minister.  Jason was raised in the Anglican tradition and as soon as his then-girlfriend Shawna said that she would go to his church if they were to ever get married, he went and bought a ring, and the rest is history!
There was never really a time in his life when Jason didn’t believe in Jesus Christ, but his faith became real and active when his construction business imploded during a bear market.  It was at that time that he fully surrendered his life to Jesus Christ.  As unexpectedly as his business declined, after his “come to Jesus” moment, the business miraculously rebounded.  It was then that he realized that the Lord had been calling him to the ministry all along; now Jason was ready to respond in faith.  Jason and Shawna sold their businesses and their home and moved their family 1,000 miles away to Nashotah, Wisconsin where Jason attended seminary at Nashotah House Theological Seminary.  Just prior to his graduation and ordination, Jason was blessed to be called back to St. Paul’s to serve as the Associate Rector.  Jason says:  “The dean of Canterbury Cathedral once told me that I was a community builder, but God had called me to be a Kingdom builder!”  Jason’s ministry involves preaching the Word, administering the sacraments, teaching the faith “once delivered to the saints”, and leading by example so that others might know the saving grace of Jesus Christ.  All this is done for God’s glory and through the guidance of His Holy Spirit.
Jason has a Bachelor’s degree in History from Wofford College, a Master’s degree in City & Regional Planning from Clemson University, and a Master’s of Divinity degree from Nashotah House.  He was ordained a Deacon on June 4, 2011 and a Priest on December 3, 2011.  He and his wife Shawna have two children:  Hannah and Duncan.
