We are excited about Jason Runnels coming back to the Rochester Area on June 7, 2018. Jason was here about 2 years ago and left a great impact on all who were able to come and listen to him perform.
Jason Runnels began a full-time career in Christian Music in 1998 when he joined Tony Gore & Majesty. While traveling with Tony Gore & Majesty, Jason had the opportunity to sing in Ireland, Scotland, and London, England.
In 2000, he was nominated as one of the top 5 young artists in Gospel Music by the readers of Singing News Magazine.
In 2001 Jason was a part of the #1 song in America, “Blessed Be the Name of the Lord.” After 5 years with Tony Gore & Majesty, he joined the Down East Boys from Reidsville, North Carolina. While singing with the Down East Boys, he had the chance to travel to Canada and annually to the West coast. Jason has written five top #20 songs and had several album cuts throughout his 20 year career. He has been blessed to have sung on every major Gospel Music event in the U.S., as well as singing on three Gaither Homecoming Videos and concerts.
After ministering full time for 15 years, Jason felt led to leave the road to be with his family. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Theresa, for 26 years and they have three sons, Trisdon, 20, Hunter, 18, and Braden, 16.
After leaving the road, Jason and Theresa moved their family back to Mississippi where they were originally from. They currently reside in Florence, MS.
In May of 2013, Jason and Theresa launched Jason Runnels Ministries and in May of 2014 they took their family ministry full time. Jason is now singing as a soloist and preaching at revivals, homecoming services as well as speaking for different types of conferences.
Jason is signed by Chapel Valley Record Company and the four recordings he has available are “I’m Amazed,” “Just Blessed,” “The Answer,” and his newest project just released “The Drive.” Jason has music available on ITunes, Amazon, and can now be found on Iradio and Spotify. Better yet come and hear Jason in person.
The concert will start at 7:00 PM and there are no tickets needed. We will be taking a love offering for Jason. So come and enjoy this evening and be prepared to give to his ministry. God tells us “a servant is worthy of his hire.”
