Jason Ferguson – Pastor
Rev. Jason Ferguson is the pastor at All Souls Church (Interdenominational) in Scott, Arkansas, a rural/suburban community just East of Little Rock, Arkansas. All Souls was founded in 1906 by a diverse group of Christians from different denominational backgrounds who wanted Scott to have its own church instead of commuting in to Little Rock and North Little Rock for worship. It was important to the church founders that “All Souls” were welcome regardless of their Christian faith heritage. All Souls Church is a warm, welcoming community of faith with people of all ages from various faith traditions and theological perspectives. There is a full-service well-staffed nursery, age appropriate children and teen Sunday school classes and a diverse offering of Adult Sunday School Classes that glorify God by helping nonbelievers and believers evolve and grow into committed mature passionate followers of Jesus Christ. Worship is each Sunday at 11 a.m. consisting of scripture, hymns, a profession of faith, a children’s lesson, a sermon and communion on the first Sunday of the month.
Ferguson has been pastoring mainline churches in Kansas and Arkansas since 2002. He is ordained in The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and licensed by the United Methodist Church. Jason believes vital mainline churches are key to reaching new and older generations of adults who have been hurt and turned off by more intolerant expressions of the Christian Faith. Jason believes that God’s Love is the only thing that is truly eternal and that churches and Christians should be ever striving to be led by God’s Love which connects us all instead of fear which divides us.
Pastor Jason earned his Master of Divinity Degree from Saint Paul School of Theology (United Methodist Seminary) in Kansas City, Missouri. He also graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. Jason also completed an 18-month clinical residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in pastoral psychotherapy accredited by the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy.
Jason is married to Amy the love of his life and a critical partner in every dimension of his life. They have one dog son Archie who is around 92 years of age in people years.
