An evangelist or preacher is a proclaimer of the good news of Jesus Christ (Eph 4:11; 2 Tim 4:1-5). In assemblies of worship, the classroom, and private settings, the goal of a minister of the gospel is to lead both Christians and seekers in Bible study and application. To do the work of an evangelist (2 Tim 4:5) is to declare the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27), to proclaim the “good news” of the kingdom of heaven (Acts 28:30-31), and to speak the truth in love (Eph 4:15).
Jason Hardin has been working as an evangelist with the Laurel Canyon church since July 2007. He and his wife Shelly have worked with churches in Plainfield (Indiana), North Ridgeville (Ohio), and Akron (Ohio). They have three daughters—Chloe, Jadyn, and Emma.
