Rev. Jason Carlson is the President of Christian Ministries International, an organization devoted to evangelism
and equipping Christians to share their faith with those in cults, world religions, and false philosophies. Jason
assumed the leadership of C.M.I. with the passing of his father, Dr. Ron Carlson, in June 2011.
At the age of 39, his ministry outreach has already taken him to 30 countries on six continents speaking and
teaching in churches, pastor's conferences, schools, universities, and seminaries. Jason is a gifted communicator
with a keen intellect. He clearly and lovingly communicates the Biblical Christian worldview in response to
contemporary cultural challenges facing the church, the various world religions, and false philosophies such as
Darwinian Naturalism and Postmodernism.
He is a graduate of Bethel University having majored in Philosophy and Biblical Theology and has his Masters
degree in Philosophy and Christian Worldview from Bethel Theological Seminary in St. Paul, MN. His travels include
two study tours in Israel and the Middle East.
Jason has appeared on numerous national radio programs, including "Today's Issues" with Tim Wildmon of The American
Family Association and "Worldview Weekend Radio" with Brannon Howse. He has also contributed to a number of book
projects, including serving as an Associate Editor for the Holman Apologetics Study Bible for Students and also
contributing a chapter on the Resurrection to Apologetics for A New Generation, a terrific resource edited by his
friend Sean McDowell.
In addition to his ministry with C.M.I., Jason has served as an Associate Pastor for Lakes Free Church in Lindstrom,
MN since 2009 and as an adjunct instructor on cults and world religions for Bethel Theological Seminary and Northwestern
College, both in St. Paul, MN.
