Jason Soroski is a pastor, writer, and musician who communicates in a way that is meaningful, relevant, and mindful of the small details that we may otherwise overlook in our everyday lives.
Tapping into his experiences as an educator, husband, and homeschooling father of five, he enjoys relating poignant stories from real-life experiences, and is passionate about encouraging others in their faith.
In December 2015 Jason wrote “Just Drop the Blanket”, a blog inspired by a moment he noticed in a Charlie Brown Christmas. This encouraging observation went viral, and created a national conversation about Christ taking away our fears. His writing has been featured by The Gospel Coalition, Preaching Today, Lifeway Women, Worship Leader Magazine, and in Kerry and Chris Shook’s 2016 book, “Find Your Miracle”.
Jason holds an M.Ed. from Missouri Baptist University, is a featured contributor to the Salem Web Network (Crosswalk.com, BibleStudyTools.com, Christianity.com), and author of A Journey to Bethlehem: Inspiring Thoughts for Christmas and Hope for the New Year. But even with all that stuff, he most enjoys spending time with his family, taking road trips, and going on new adventures whenever he gets the chance.

Jesus was born into a world filled with fear. It was a world of oppression and uncertainty, much like our own. Yet the angels who appeared to the shepherds proclaimed, “Fear Not!”. Centering around Deuteronomy 31:6 and Luke 2:10-11, and drawing from personal experiences, we will take a closer look at how God replaces our fears with faith when we choose to trust in Him.
My greatest passion in life can generally be boiled down to a desire to strengthen and encourage believers. God has allowed me to do this through songs I have written, personal testimony of my life, the craziness of a homeschooling family, and sharing with others who are on the same path of trying to serve God in the midst of a hectic life. It is a joy to encourage groups through personal songs of worship and the stories and Scriptures that inspired them.
In reading through the Scriptures I have noticed a that practically everyone God calls to do His work is pretty much unqualified to do it. It seems that God has a tendency to call on people that we would never consider calling. David was the least of his family, Moses was slow of speech, Gideon was filled with fear, and Peter was an uneducated fisherman. What does God see that we don’t?
Prayer is our main line of communication with God, yet many of us still don’t feel like we know how to pray the way we think we should be praying. We can learn by asking, how did Jesus pray? In John 17 we can examine His longest recorded prayer, and also find the answers to many of our deepest questions, and discover life-changing truth.
In telling my story of choosing faith over fear, I hope to encourage others to find their story.
