Innovista Staff Jason Lane

Jason Lane

Jason Lane is the International Director of Innovista. He grew up in Cardiff, Wales. His first leadership experience was captaining the school football team. "I wasn’t the best footballer," says Jason, "but I could inspire the team."

Jason says, " A good friend of mine decided to follow Jesus and I saw him change for the better. He told me it was all to do with Jesus. I was doing all the things that were supposed to be life fulfilling and yet felt empty and purposeless. I was reluctant to become a Christian but was convinced by the experience of others."

After studying at Bath University, Jason began what became known as Innovista in 1998, and has been involved in resourcing leaders to lead mission better ever since.

Favourite Quote: "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart." - Nelson Mandela

Hobbies: Skiing, running and eating curry with friends.

What I Do: In essence, my role is a simple one. Inside the organisation I help people make their best contribution to our mission of helping others discover Jesus. Externally, my primary focus is helping other mission leaders - especially the up-and-coming ones to lead more effectively.

Why I Do It: Why wouldn't I do this? Jesus promise of 'More and better life than they ever dreamed of' has been my experience. I want to help as many people as possible to experience life with Jesus - in all its dimensions and with all it implications.
