Today we’d like you to meet Jason Yost. Jason is a gifted musician, worship leader, and founder of the New Rhythm Project, which is a non-profit organization that works to educate, communicate, and facilitate local communities to care for orphans and vulnerable children across the globe. Check out how following Jesus compels his efforts in the world of adoption.
#LF- If someone wanted to make a difference in your sphere of influence, what would you tell them?
Simply begin to do what the Bible explains for us to do. Don’t over-complicate things. If the Bible says that the “perfect religion” is one that cares for orphans and widows then we had better focus attention on caring for the orphans and widows. Finding the will of God for your life can be much simpler than you think. Start with what the Bible says and you will be amazed at how much difference you will make.
#LF – How do you seek to impact culture in this area of adoption?
Our goal is to connect with every sphere of culture and help them find ways that they can use their everyday skills, education, networks, and creativity to care for orphans and vulnerable children.
#LF – How does your relationship with God affect your ability to influence the world?
For me, it all begins and ends with my relationship with God. He is our source for everything. If I am not connected to the source then I am not being very effective. It is very true that without God we can accomplish nothing. If I am trying to influence the world without God I am only putting a bandaid on its needs. In my life, I want to make a lasting impact on this world and in order to so that I must stay connected to Jesus.
#LF – How can we help you in your mission to care for orphans?
Consider ways that you can care for orphans in your current stage of life. There are so many creative ways of helping that has not even been tapped into yet. Perhaps someone reading this has the next idea and ability to eradicate the orphan crisis as we know it.
