Jason Houser

Jason Houser is a worship leader, songwriter and the founder of the Seeds Family Worship ministry. Looking back now, he never would have imagined that leading worship at his church’s Vacation Bible School in 2002 would be the beginning of the Seeds ministry.

Jason is a Grammy-nominated songwriter that has co-written several #1 songs, including “More”, and “The Motions”, for Matthew West and “Hide” for Joy Williams. He also co-wrote Matthew West’s current radio single called “Broken Things”.

Jason has also co-written a parenting book called “Dedicated: Training Children To Trust and Follow Jesus” (Zondervan) with Pastor Bobby Harrington and his son Chad Harrington. The book shares the biblical principles that formed a foundation for the Houser family when their children were young.

Jason grew up in a small town in Idaho with big dreams of pursuing a career in music. To read Jason’s testimony about how God redeemed his story and brought the Seeds ministry to life, click the link at the bottom that says, ‘LEARN MORE ABOUT JASON HOUSER AND FAMILY HERE’.
