ABOUT
JASON BYASSEE

Jason Byassee is a full professor and the inaugural holder of the Butler Chair in Homiletics and Biblical Hermeneutics at the Vancouver School of Theology in British Columbia. His primary vocation is to reinvigorate today’s church with the best of ancient and contemporary wisdom for creatively faithful living.

He is the author or editor of a number of books, including, most recently, Northern Lights: Resurrecting Church in the North of England, with Ross Lockhart, Better than Brunch: Missional Churches in Cascadia (both with Cascade) and Surprised by Jesus Again (Eerdmans). His work has appeared in Christianity Today, Theology Today, Books & Culture, Sojourners, and First Things. He is the editor of the nine-volume Pastoring for Life series with Baker Academic. It will include his own book with Andria Irwin, Following: Embodied Discipleship in a Digital Age.

He was previously senior pastor of Boone United Methodist Church in Boone, North Carolina. There he directed eight other pastoral staff members, led a staff of sixteen, and pastored a congregation of 1500 from five worshiping communities. He has also served as pastor of a small, 80-person congregation in NC and as interim senior pastor at First Baptist Church in Vancouver, BC. Currently, he is preacher to the English speaking congregation at Oakridge Christian Community in Vancouver, BC.

 

He is married to Jaylynn Warren Byassee, who is senior pastor of North Lonsdale United Church in North Vancouver, BC. Together they have three boys, ages 18, 16, and 13, who attend secondary schools in East Vancouver. Things break in their house.
