Jason Shepperd planted Church Project, a "Church of House Churches™,” in 2010 in The Woodlands, TX, in pursuit of "Rethinking and Returning" to what Christ originally intended for His church to be. What began as a group of 40 people in two House Churches has turned into a movement of thousands of people gathered in many House Churches locally, and also dozens of Church Projects started in different cities, states, and countries. Church Project is based on biblical, historical, and global ecclesiological elements "eDNA: Ecclesiological DNA" of: DECENTRALIZED from primary place and priest, that DISTRIBUTES pastoral leadership to empowered and equipped lay pastors, who fully pastor DIVERSE DISCIPLESHIP geographically-based House Church communities, which carry out all of the functions of a church. Local House Churches are connected by common overseers and shared local and global ministries. One result of a connected movement of House Churches is "Simplicity for the Sake of Generosity," focusing almost $13 million in their first 14 years toward gospel centered ministries and church planting.

Jason also leads Church Project Network, and House Church Network, which are collectives of churches aligned around the commitment to be a "Church of House Churches." Jason founded and oversees "Good City," a city centrality for local ministry collaboration and support, and he speaks on "GOOD.GOD.GOSPEL.", an evangelistic tool for believers to share the gospel. He wrote the books A Church of House Churches: An Articulated and Applied Ecclesiology and Church Project: A Biblical, Simple, Relevant Pursuit of Church. Jason records a daily devotional podcast, START WITH 7, which leads thousands of people daily to start their days with prayer and Scripture.

Jason pastors, supports pastors, writes and speaks about ecclesiology, and consults churches on how to become a "Church of House Churches." He enjoys all things family, sports, competition, outdoors, travel, and trekking mountains. Jason lives in The Woodlands, TX, with his wife Brooke, and their family.
