EXECUTIVE AND YOUTH PASTOR
WHO IS JASON REGIER?
I grew up on a corn farm in Western Nebraska. I grew up with values of hard work, family, church, and creating space to have fun. My experience is one that I wish more kids had the opportunity to enjoy. I came to faith as a young child with my parents leading the way. However, my faith didn't catch fire until college when I became friends with several college-age students who were passionate about Jesus.
My wife, Dolly, and I have 2 daughters and one on the way.
COLLEGE, DEGREES AND CERTIFICATIONS:
Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kansas - Bachelor’s Degree
HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT LIFEPOINTE?
I found LifePointe online when I was searching for a church in the Kansas City area that preached the Word (Redemption/Authority of the Believer/Holy Spirit) but also had a heart for the lost.
HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR PRESENT ROLE AT LIFEPOINTE?
First let me say that LifePointe has impacted my life in so many ways. My relationship with God and my faith in God have grown exponentially. I have found lifelong friends and mentorship. I've also had the opportunity to come on as full-time staff and live out my dream of ministry.
I had some preparation in college (through my degree and service opportunities) for my role, but most of my preparation and development has been at LifePointe. I served as a volunteer for many years, but more importantly, I was hungry to grow and tried to be a part of everything that LifePointe offered. I served on the worship team for a few years before being asked to lead. I led the team for 5 years before coming on as full-time staff. In my full-time role, I have led the worship and youth for 8 years and executive and youth now for almost a year.
My favorite part of what I do is empowering leaders and seeing that leader own the vision and make decisions.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT LIFEPOINTE?
Over the years it's been the multiple opportunities to encounter God through services, mentoring, coffee meetings, and serving. Currently, my favorite part is groups.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?
- Roast Coffee
- Hang with my kiddos
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO SCRIPTURE VERSE THAT CONTINUES TO SPEAK POWER TO YOUR LIFE?
EPHESIANS 1:17-19 NIV - 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength

DESCRIBE A PERFECT DAY.
A perfect day would be slow paced, lots of outdoors with beautiful weather, lots of present moments with my family, a good book, a great cup of coffee, a run/hike/bike ride, a nap, and some amazing food.
