After serving as the Minister of Christian Education and Youth at Mililani Community Church (MCC) beginning in 1995, Jayson moved to Maui in August 1999 to pioneer a church plant with his family and a small team. In April 2001, he was ordained through the Evangelical Free Church of America. Then in July 2004, with the blessing of his congregation and the Hawaii District of the EFCA, he began a twelve-year ministry at Kahului Union Church. Finally, in God’s providence, after seventeen years away, God has brought him full circle to shepherd the people of MCC in the footsteps of his mentor and former Senior Pastor, Dr. Rick Bartosik. His desire is to spread a passion for the greatness and worth of Jesus so that people will find their greatest joy and treasure in Him.
Pastor Jayson has been married since 1997 to his beautiful wife, Rachelle. They are blessed with four children, Christian, Jon, Aaron, and Hope.
