Name: Jason Carr
Role: Community Pastor
Where did you grow up?
A used to be sleepy little small town called Alpharetta, Ga.
Where do you currently live?
In Alpharetta. I actually now live in and own the house I grew up in.
What is your favorite candy?
Tough one. Reese’s cups are hard to beat.
What’s your pizza topping of choice?
What is your Starbucks order?
Venti Dark Roast.
What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
Isaiah 40:31. Since childhood this verse has been a constant source of challenge and encouragement. As I get older, it means more and more.
What is your favorite part of being a part of the LCA Community?
The intentional desire to help families and students live a legacy that matters. I lead a ministry called Legacy Now and LCA speaks a lot of the same language and heartbeat in what He has me doing outside of LCA.
What is God currently teaching you?
That the anchor of faith is as deep as you need it to be. We left our anchor when we needed Him the most the last time. When the storm comes, it's still there and is capable of going as deep as you need it to go. The Cross it's connected to can handle it.
If you could share anything to encourage other LCA staff or LCA families, what would you say?
I've been working with teenagers for over 20 years now. I still lead a group outside of school and I'll say this, LCA has a very special role serving God's Kingdom. Behind the scenes, the staff care about much more than a grade, they care deeply about the soul. It's been incredible being a part of a place that sees a student through eternal eyes, that desires for a student to live a life and legacy that matters, and wants to partner with families to that end. It matters.
