OUR PASTOR

Jason Bantz became our new pastor in March.

Pastor Jason previously ministered at College Corner Presbyterian Church for 21 years (1997 - 2018).  He was that church's pastor when they left PC(USA) and joined the EPC in 2009.

Pastor Jason's wife, Susan, works at the Miami University Student Health Center.  Jason and Susan have four children (Emily, Carrie, Nathan, and Luke). 

We are thrilled for Pastor Jason, Susan, and the Bantz family to be joining the life and livelihood of Mt. Olivet.  May the Lord give strength and guidance to the Bantzes in this next step in their Christian lives.
