Jason comes to us from Main Line Unitarian Church in Devon, where he was hired as the Youth Coordinator 4+ years ago. Last year at the same church Jason stepped into sharing the position of Director of Religious Education. While at MLUC, Jason revitalized the engagement of youth in the church and grew that program. He is beloved by parents and other members of the congregation. Jason is collaborative and communicative, and very hands-on. Our kids had a wonderful experience in a trial class, where he easily had them engaged and participating fully right from the start.
Jason brings extensive knowledge of childhood development and a passion for working with children of all ages, as well as great ideas about how we can take our Lifespan Spiritual Development to the next level of excellence. In addition, he has solid experience and a deep interest in social justice.
Jason lives a few blocks away from USG in Germantown with his wife, Lindsay, who teaches in Philadelphia.
Jason Bender’s office hours at USG are from Tuesday through Friday, 10:00AM till 4:00PM. Please call the main church number, 215-844-1157 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
