When Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia decided to make a movie, Jason landed the part of team captain Brock Kelley in the now internationally distributed Christian movie Facing the Giants.
After the movie was produced, Jason went on to Georgia Southern University where he played football for the Eagles for 2 years. Before the release of the film, God called Jason to step away from football to pursue ministry. Jason had no idea how the Lord would later catapult that ministry with the release of Facing the Giants in theaters across the nation as well as distribution in 56 other countries. Jason also participated in Sherwood Pictures third feature film Fireproof, in which he took on the role of rookie fireman Eric Harmon, as well as working on the set crew for feature film Courageous.
Best known for the inspirational “death crawl” scene, Jason has served in ministry and the local church for the past 12 years. Jason has a unique gift of connecting with audiences of all ages and hopes to point people to a real and authentic relationship with Jesus Christ through biblical teaching.
Jason has a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies of Communication and Religion from Liberty University, and lives in Georgia with his wife, Meagan, and their three children.
"Jason McLeod is one of the finest young speakers I've heard. His passion to serve his Lord and his powerful testimony, coupled with his contagious communicative ability, immediately connects him to any audience, young and old alike!"
“Jason McLeod won the hearts of my students in the movie Facing the Giants. But when he came to speak to us, (We have had him twice), his humble yet powerful message stirred the hearts of our students as he spoke with a God-given authority. I look forward to having Jason come back in the future. He is a humble, gracious, gentle giant that God is using mightily for the Kingdom!!”
"After working with Jason McLeod on the movie Fireproof I have discovered that he is a bright, passionate, and inspiring witness for his Lord, Jesus Christ. If you’re looking for a fresh voice to inspire your young people to never give up, never back down, and never loose faith…then Jason is your man."
