Jason Lee Jones has been ministering in both Worship and Word for over twenty years. He and his wife are the founders of Richest of Fare Global Ministries and The Godbreed Iris Savannah, and are both full-time international Worship Leaders, Conference Speakers and Missionaries.
Stefan van der Merwe, worship leader and pastor from Oasis House of the Father in Benoni, and his family, brought Jason to South Africa during May for a week to lead worship and minister at various churches in Mpumalanga and Gauteng. I had the privilege of joining him on-stage alongside my wife Liezel Marshall at three of these events, and what an incredible experience it was.
Upon meeting Jason, it is very apparent that this man has no agenda other than spreading the love of Jesus to everyone he encounters, and he definitely gets it right.
Joining him on stage on Friday the 20th of May at Breakthru Life Church in Roodepoort, after being stuck in traffic for almost 3 hours from Pretoria, we had 10 minutes to figure out what songs to play, how his own original songs went, and what expected from the band. Having done this type of thing before with other local and international worship leaders, I was prepared for the worst, crazy song arrangements, weird keys and no form or structure at all… And this was exactly the opposite.
Jason, being an incredible piano player and singer, started the worship service, with How Great Is Our God, How He Loves Us and How Great Thou Art before going into a two-and-a-half-hour free worship set, which felt like fifteen minutes. It was an amazing experience.
On Saturday, the 21st, we joined him again at Lewende Woord Brummeria, the church where I’m musical director and my wife a worship leader, again for spirit filled time of worship and teaching on worship. The teaching itself was more than two hours long, and there’s too much detail to mention here, I’d rather just add the link for you to check out. Trust me, you want to.
Jason’s messages and melodies are birthed out of direct dialogues and exchanges with the Father through prayer and studying the Word. His heart burns vehemently for the peoples and nations of the earth to encounter Christ Jesus and the breath of His Spirit.
It was truly an incredible experience worshiping with Jason.
