Event Details

Compassionate Christianity – Adoption and the Body of Christ

Jason Smith was born and raised in Independence, Missouri by two wonderful loving parents and an older brother. Most of his youth was consumed with the pursuit of athletic endeavors like baseball, track, and basketball. He was blessed to be taught the value of hard work which helped him achieve the highest rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts.

He chased his dream of being a basketball coach by attending the University of Kansas majoring in Physical Education, but his college experience and lifestyle proved to be unspiritual. He was drawn to the Lord in his late 20’s which led to his salvation and has sparked a love affair with his Savior ever since.

In his early 30’s, he met my lovely bride Tina, and they were married in 2003. Both of them had a strong desire to have a large family, but God saw fit to just give them two amazing children; Shayna Lyn and Jonas Jackson. With the blessing of his local church in Cleveland Tennessee, Cornerstone Family Church’s emphasis “…to look after orphans and widows” (James 1:27), they recently adopted a family of three children from the Philippines: Deserie, Catherine Joy, and Joselito.  Raising five children in the admonition of the Lord is a high calling, an honor, and a blessing from the Lord.

Seeking to grow in his faith, he enhanced his education with a Christian Ministry degree from Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri while he served as their Men’s Basketball Coach. His profession has taken him from Kansas City to San Diego to presently Dayton, Tennessee serving at small Christian Colleges; he is currently in his seventh season as the Women’s Basketball Coach at Bryan College.

A steady progressive walk in his faith and the understanding of his responsibility for family discipleship led his family to Cornerstone Family Church in Cleveland which has provided his family a place to worship in Spirit and Truth, founded on the truth of God’s Word. He is not ashamed to pronounce the importance of his role as father and leader of his household and his spiritual friends have actively affirmed and developed this ordained quality in him. He counts it a blessing to humbly serve as an elder and he looks forward to doing the work of Kingdom Building with his fellow believers.
