Jason South

Elementary Ministry Director

I am so excited to be joining the Northwest Children’s Ministry as the Elementary Director, and to join the Northwest Family. Prior to coming to Northwest, I served as a Children’s’ Minister as well as a Theatre Professor in Montgomery, Alabama. Throughout my life I have felt God’s calling to serve children and to train others to serve them as well. I feel so blessed by God to be able to serve and use the talents that He poured into my life to train and instruct the children of Northwest.

I was fortunate to grow up in a strong committed Christian family and followed God’s calling and was baptized at the early age of 10. My faith continued to grow though my life, and while in college, I saw how God wanted me to serve him through storytelling and training children. My passion for Christ continues to develop and I am constantly amazed how God directs our paths in our life. He has placed my family in a number of situations and locations where he made it abundantly clear how he wanted us to serve. We feel that our move to Dallas, and to Northwest is one of those situations. He has paved a way for us to be here and we are now excited to see his plan unfold, and his blessings overflow.

My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family. My wife, Gina, and our four kids, Crispin, Duncan, Liam, and Juliet are my treasure. We love to travel and we like to split up our vacation times between, Disney World, the beach, and the mountains. I love to listen to audio books and podcasts while I multitask or watch a fun movie with my family. We love to entertain guests in our home, and hope to have many of our new Northwest family to our home soon. The scripture that speaks life into me at the moment is Ecclesiastes 3:12 “I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.”
