Jason Moore, Pastor
I am a Missouri boy. I grew up in a small town where I learned to fish, work hard and root, root, root for the Cardinals. I left Missouri a couple times, but kept coming back. I love this state and the people in it. My family has called Wentzville home for the last three years. We’ve quickly come to love this city and the people who live here. It is my hope that we will be in Wentzville for many years discovering ways to be a blessing to the people around us.
I enjoy being with people. I am interested in a wide variety of things and have a good time talking with people about what they love and are passionate about. I’m happy to sit with friends and talk while we have a drink or share a good plate of food. I like meaningful conversations, but I’m also a jokester with a dry sense of humor. (A good laugh goes a long way.) I love to play games and watch sports. I am a bit of a pop culture junkie and I have a little too much useless information in my head.
I am a church-planting pastor with the Presbyterian Church in America. More than that, I am a child of God saved by his amazing grace. It’s my hope that, come what may, God will use my life to display his love and make his goodness known.
About my family
Tiffany and I met in the spring of 2001. We were married before the end of the summer of 2001. We fell in love quickly (and are still in love today), but the first five years of our marriage were rocky. Tiffany was patient with me during difficult times, and I am grateful to God that she was willing to fight for our marriage. We have seen the grace and mercy of God at work. God broke into our lives in a radical way and saved our marriage. One of the reasons we wanted to plant a church is because we have seen God’s ability to restore broken things. We want others to have a safe place to pursue the grace that God has for them, for their marriages and for their families.
We have three beautiful, feisty and pretty dramatic little girls. McKenzie is eight and a great third-base(wo)man. Eliza is almost five and may be a chef someday. Izzy is three and seems to laugh more than any child I’ve ever known. Having three girls means our house is full of a lot of pink, purple and princess stuff. Though it is sometimes lonely being the only “boy” in the house, I am thankful for my girls. God has taught me how to adore them, and softened my heart through relationship with my girls. We have a lot of crazy fun at our house. We are extremely grateful to have family, friends and a church community to offer support when times get tough. It is our hope that this church can be a safe place for families to grow in grace and find answers to the hard questions that life throws our way.

LUKE CALVIN, WORSHIP LEADER & COUNSELOR, NEW HOPE COUNSELING
Jen and I joined New Creation in the summer of 2014, when Jason asked us to consider leading worship for the church. Jason and I have been friends since going through seminary together, and Tiffany and Jen have been friends since their days of working at Missouri Baptist Children’s Home together. Joining NCPC and moving out to Wentzville is actually the culmination of a 5-year long process of dreaming together and waiting on, and hoping for, the Lord to fulfill that dream.
Aside from leading worship for New Creation, I am also a counselor with New Hope Counseling Services. The roles of counselor and a worship leader actually fit together better than I ever realized. In both my work as a counselor, as well as my work as a worship leader, my hope is that a person’s heart and mind can begin to get on the same page in order to be moved, shaped, healed, and led by the gospel of grace. It is a joy and a privilege to worship with the people of New Creation Church.
Jen and I have two boys: Grey and Reese. They are a devastating delight to me. Our family loves to watch movies together, and play board games (if you’re ever in the mood for a round of Settlers of Catan or Ticket to Ride, let us know). When I get some time to myself, I love to read (I’m on a graphic novel kick right now), watch “The Walking Dead, “ and talk life and culture over a good beer.
