A classic blend of hymns and choruses with choir and orchestra
Worship that reflects new styles and artist
Jason was born and raised in Duncanville, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. In high school he played Tuba (insert joke here) and sang in the choir. He was always a part of the youth programs and even helped lead the youth while the church was between youth pastors. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from Southern Nazarene University. While in college he watched a lot of Seinfeld episodes and ate a lot of pizza after midnight.
In 2007, Jason answered God’s call to full-time Christian ministry. At that time he was working as the branch manager for a finance company in Tampa, Florida. Because of that call he moved his family to Ft. Worth, TX in 2007 where, in 2009, he earned his Master of Arts in Christian Education with a concentration in Administration from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
While in seminary, Jason served part-time as Youth Pastor and Administrator in Denton, Texas. Upon graduation from seminary he and his family moved to Marlow, Oklahoma, where he served as the Associate Pastor of Administration at First Baptist Church.
Jason has been married to Kim since 2000 and they have a son, Nolan. They really enjoy watching the Texas Rangers, hiking, playing games, swimming, playing golf and eating good food with good friends and family.
Lois has lived most of her life in Oklahoma, and also spent some time living in North Carolina. She accepted Jesus as her Savior as a young child and was baptized at the age of eight.

Lois’ hobbies include baking (especially delicious breads at Christmas time for co-workers), working out, reading and traveling.
Mark was born and raised in El Reno. After many years of running from the Lord, he met his wife who set the example of what it means to be a Christ-follower. Becky was instrumental in his salvation experience to receive Christ during a spring revival. They enjoy two adult children, Jason and Katie, their son-in-law, Aaron, and grandsons, Ethan and Josiah. Mark adds that "Scooter" and "Twister" had their first Harley rides at six months of age.Mark and Becky joined CRBC in 2004 and have loved every minute of it. Mark serves as Executive Director for the State of Oklahoma F.A.I.T.H. Riders Motorcycle Ministry. They actively participate in ministry tents at motorcycle rallies across the United States where thousands have prayed to receive Christ. Paul says in Colossians 1:28, “So everywhere we go, we tell everyone about Christ,” and Mark and Becky enjoy telling everyone they come in contact with about the Good News of Jesus Christ!Mark has served as Director of Facilities since 2014 and feels that his position goes much further than just overseeing the buildings and grounds at CRBC. "There are ministry opportunities in everything we do, and this is no different." Mark feels he is blessed to be part of such an amazing God-focused team and is especially thankful to God for the amazing opportunity that has been laid before him.
Susan grew up in Trinity Baptist Church in Andrews, Texas, and accepted Christ when she was nine years old when the Holy Spirit took hold of her heart. She knew God had a plan for her life and felt his presence in her life.
Sixteen years ago, God’s plan brought Susan to CRBC as the Controller. She is responsible for the tasks related to the finances and assists the ministers with their financial oversights. She loves her children and grandchildren and loves to spend as much time with them as she can. She established an estate liquidation business 15 years ago and loves being able to minister to families with this need. She is a collector of treasures and is often accused of being a borderline hoarder.
Susan was born in the Philippines, but grew up in Bethany, Oklahoma, graduating from Putnam City West High School. She and her husband, Rodger, have three children and seven grandchildren. Susan grew up in a different denomination and never understood the meaning of salvation, but knows God was planting seeds in her heart. While living in Bend, Oregon, and helping to build a church with another pastor friend, she came to know her Savior. She says it was a joy, and she felt a lot of peace come over her spirit.
Susan loves to serve people, and being in food service allows her to serve all kinds of people. Her responsibilities include the family-style meals on Wednesday night, funeral meal preparation and other special events to help within the church or community. She also prepares food for the Reaching Our City mission and CRBC’s annual community-wide Thanksgiving meal program, Families Loving Families.
Susan loves spending time with her family and also enjoys photography, especially taking pictures of her grandchildren. Other hobbies include sewing, crochet, cake decorating and travel. Her dream is to travel to Europe and Canada someday. She also enjoys visiting the Philippines.
