Pastor Jamison will be the next co-lead pastor of Citylight Benson Church. We are beyond thrilled about this decision. Jamison was born and raised right here in North Omaha. He’s a musician who grew up playing the drums and organ in church. Over the past decade he has served as a Youth Pastor, Campus Pastor, Small Groups Leader, and Worship Pastor. During the past four years, Jamison and his wife Raquel have served in the inner city of North Omaha with Bridge Church.
Our “wish list” for a new co-lead pastor included someone with a high shepherding gift, a real heart for people, relatable, passionate, able to cast vision, able to raise up leaders, good communicator, mature/experienced leader, Gospel-centered, Spirit-led, and someone committed to diversity. Jamison Horton, out of all of the candidates we pursued, best matched our desired criteria.
But, there’s more good news!
Pastor Jamison planted Forward Church one year ago and is going to be bringing all 50-60 members with him to Citylight Benson. They will be joining us for a “soft launch” on Sunday, February 3rd. Together, we will gear up for an official public launch on Sunday, March 17th. At that time, we will begin a 5-week vision series that will take us up to Easter Sunday.
We will host a breakfast before the 9am service and pizza after the 11am service on both February 3rd and February 17th to give you an opportunity to meet members of Forward Church.
God is writing an incredible story in the life of our church and we give him all the glory! The best is yet to come.
