Musician Jason Houser of SEEDS Family Worship, along with Tom Dodds, songwriter for Bethlehem Baptist Churches Fighter Verse Song project, tell how setting the scriptures to song is imparting God’s word into the hearts of children and adults.
Jason Houser is a songwriter, worship leader, and the founder of the Seeds Family Worship ministry. Looking back from here, he never would have imagined that leading worship at his church’s Vacation Bible School in 2002 would mark the beginning of the Seeds ministry. He has seen God’s faithfulness as he has written, recorded and produced over 150 scripture worship songs over the past 15 years. He has been able to work many gifted artists, worship leaders and songwriters to bring these records to life including Matthew West, Tiffany Lee (Plumb), Jared Anderson (Rescue, Amazed), and Philip & Jessica Morlan.
In addition to his work with Seeds, Jason is a Grammy-nominated songwriter that has co-written recent chart-topping radio singles with Matthew West including “Broken Things” and “All In“. He and West also co-wrote 2 ASCAP Songs of the Year together “The Motions” and “More” and co-wrote Joy Willims #1 single “Hide”.
Jason co-wrote a parenting book called “Dedicated: Training Children To Trust and Follow Jesus” (Zondervan). The book, co-written with Pastor Bobby Harrington and Chad Harrington, shares the biblical principles that formed a foundation for the Houser family when their children were young. The book also shares the Seeds Family Worship story.
Jason has been married to his wife, Heidi, for more than twenty years, and together they are discipling their three children, Ben, Brandon, and Abby.
