Jason Swiggart

Cypress Campus Pastor

Born in Garland, Texas, Jason was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ's gift of salvation at the age of 12. While he was a sophomore at Baylor, he was called by God to full-time ministry. He came to Houston in 1988 as a student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for a summer internship -- and he's still here in H-Town.

Jason served for 8 years in youth ministry before joining the Houston's First staff in 1995. He has served our church as Minister to Married Young Adults and most recently as the Ministries Pastor, shepherding ministries from Preschool through Senior Adults, plus Men and Women.

A strong love for the church has always been a hallmark of Jason's ministry. He not only loves the people who make up the church, but he also enjoys participating in what the church has to offer -- and not just because he's a staff member!

Jason met Paige, his wife, on a blind date 21 years ago. Today, they have three sons -- Chambers (high school senior), Harrison (high school freshman), and Preston (7th grader). Jason's passion for people, marriages and families is evident in how he lives his life and how he encourages and disciples other young families, as well.

In case you're wondering, his favorite restaurants are Taste of Texas, Hungry's, and Empire Cafe and his coffee order is a skinny vanilla late. His hobbies include fitness, reading, music, and anything his boys are involved in.
