Dr. Jason Garwood is the teaching pastor and church planter here at Cross & Crown. He brings 15 years of various ministry experience, including serving in Michigan as a lead pastor for 6 1/2 years before being sent to Northern Virgina to plant Cross & Crown.

Jason holds a Bachelor of Science in Bible from Cairn University, a Master of Divinity from Biblical Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Theology (ThD). He released his first book, “The Fight for Joy,” in 2013, and his second book “Be Holy: Learning the Path of Sanctification” in 2014. Jason podcasts monthly on the Setting the Record Straight podcast of Reconstructionist Radio, where he serves as a board member.

The most exciting thing for Jason, however, is that he is husband to Mary (11 years), and father to Elijah, Avery and Nathan.
