He went to college at Liberty University to study theology in the hopes of cracking of the gay code, only to find that God accepts everyone regardless of their orientation. So now Jase is living as an openly gay minister. Although, He was always a writer Jase didn’t produce his first published book until 2013 entitled, “Lord, Here I Am” which is novel speaking on homosexuality and the church. Jase now lives in Houston, Texas and attends Freedom Temple Ministries. Although, still working in Corporate America Jase plans to open his own publication company and enter into fulltime ministry in the very near future.   

One of the darkest moments in my life was when I realized that the man that I had called father was not my biological father. It wasn’t the fact that he wasn’t my biological father that bothered it was the way that I found out. As a child I always had some feminine ways and I wasn’t the jock that everyone thought that I should be, I now stand 6’2, 230lbs, and although I didn’t necessarily fit in with everyone I was always comfortable with myself. One Saturday morning, my older brother and I always did yard work and chores and I was told to cut the grass. Well, let’s just say that I wasn’t as good as my older brother who is 4 years older than me and here I am switching across the yard, not making the lines straight, and had a very obvious attitude his father, William, said “ I know that you are not my son because you look like a sissy.”  Well, nevertheless I stopped immediately as he grew closer and as the tears rolled down my face before I could a say a word he slapped me. The slap wasn’t as harmful as the words and for the very first time I realized that I was a fatherless child and that I stood alone.

I learned a lot that day and being that I still wasn’t out of the closet I thought to myself “maybe you should go a deeper into the closet now”. However, I learned about my father who was deceased by the time I was 5. I learned about the characteristics that we share, the good and the bad, and I embraced his memory without having any memories of him. Interesting huh? Well, now being an openly gay minister hasn’t been the most joyous ride ever and I face a lot of scrutiny because of it sometimes but I know that I am not alone. One thing that I know is that EVERYONE has a purpose, no matter who you are and with that purpose we will never walk that path alone-God is with you.

In this journey that we call life we will go through a lot some good and other times bad but the one thing that we must realize is that we are never alone. Whether we have a boyfriend or girlfriend, none of that matters because we are never alone. God is always there and more importantly willing to hear all about the good, the bad, and even the ugly. In this life, we often search and run to others and social media outlets in order to make ourselves complete when in fact, we are completed in God and the other people are just,” accessories to the outfit”. Remember to love God, yourself, and then others and you are never a fatherless child. God promised in Deuteronomy 31:6 that “He will never leave you nor forsake you” so when the bad times come, when you feel alone, when feel abandoned by whatever or whoever know that you are not alone- God is there.
