Leadership of ATM: Team of Directors

Jason and Jo'el King

Jason is a Pastor at New Life Christian Center in Celina, Ohio. Jason received his B.S. in Secondary Education from Bowling Green State University. After teaching high school math for 6 ½ years Jason moved into full time ministry. In 2009 Jason was elected to serve as Celina City Council President, where he currently serves. He also served as the Educational Chairman of the Grand Lake Patriots for four years and speaks to many other conservative groups in the west-central Ohio region. In addition to this he has also enjoyed the challenge of coaching wrestling over the past two decades. Although he was reared in a godly home, he began to run from God his senior year of high school. While reluctantly traveling on a mission trip to Central America with ATM short term missions, God radically turned him around and set him on fire with a passion for the Kingdom of God. This “Damascus Road” experience on the mission field birthed a desire in him to reach the nations. He has ministered in such countries as Belize, Guatemala, Haiti, Peru, Brazil, England, and Wales on numerous trips since the early 90′s. Called to be an apostle and teacher, Jason works to plant and build churches abroad. Jason is married to Jo'el and together they have four children, Joshua, Jaden, Aliyah, and Aaren.

Randy is the Associate Pastor at Foundation Stone Christin Church in Northwood, Ohio and is a prophetic-pastor who is passionate about serving the people of God and equipping them to hear God's voice.

He has worked apostolically and prophetically on many local and extra-local teams including other nations (e.g., Haiti, Peru, Wales, England, Guatemala, Honduras and Grenada). He earned his B.A. in History from the University of Toledo and has a personal interest in early American history as it relates to the faith of America's founding fathers. Randy oversees multiple ministry teams and is a highly sought after mentor from young and emerging leaders. Prior to entering full-time pastoral ministry Randy was a Director at Cherry Street Mission Ministries where he learned to lead and motivate in some areas of the cities harshest conditions with some great people. Randy is a sincere and humorous speaker who brings authenticity and passion for getting close to the heart of God. Randy is married to Jennifer and through personal tragedy they have learned to walk in Christ’s love, together they have four children Eliana Ruth (living in heaven), Sophia Grace, Samuel Robert, and Tabitha Hope.

H.G. and Chaley Strickland

HG Strickland was born in Defiance, Ohio.  As a young man, HG knew God called him to ministry and he began obeying that call in the pulpit before the age of ten. Since then, he’s planted churches, launched ministries, and has raised up leaders across denominational lines. In fulfilling that call, God has taken him far beyond traditional ministry and church leadership to lead charities, foundations, businesses, and even train government leaders on Capitol Hill to operate in their identity and purpose.  HG also travels throughout the world teaching “Work Is Worship” and training people to live a life of purpose in the Kingdom of God. This revelation empowers people to incorporate their spiritual life into everyday life and to serve God where He places them – at work, at school, at home, and not only at church.  While speaking at a Kingdom Quake conference in Toledo, Ohio, HG ministered to a lobbyist. That encounter would prove to be a divine appointment and led to an invitation to Washington, D.C. in January 2016. That lobbyist became a powerful ministry partner, and since then the two have been teaching in boardrooms across Washington, D.C. every two weeks. As the ministry continued to increase, it became apparent God was doing something more. Kingdom Life Ministries held their first service as a new church plant on October 14, 2018. They meet on Sunday evenings at the historic New York Avenue Presbyterian Church just two blocks from the White House. HG has a Doctor of Ministry from Vision Christian Bible College & Seminary, where he serves on the national board, is the International Director, co-chairs the Department of Ministry, and is a mentoring professor in the Master and Doctoral Programs. He is a Director of Apostolic Team Ministries International and is a founding director of Kingdom Leadership International. HG is married to the love of his life and ministry partner, Chaley and together they have two boys, Tristan and Gavin.
