Senior Pastor
Teaching, Administration, Discipleship
 
Jason grew up in Tennessee where his parents were directors of Christian homes for troubled teens and his father was a pastor.   He was saved and baptized at a young age.  As a Senior in high school, Jason felt God was calling him into the Gospel ministry.  He met his wife, Joy, during high school and they began a close friendship that led them to the same Christian college, Crown College in Knoxville, TN in 1991.  There, Joy majored in elementary education and Jason in pastoral theology.  They were married in 1994.  Jason finished his degree in 1995 and they began full time ministry at Shenandoah Baptist Church in 1996.  Jason was the Associate Pastor for 11 years before becoming the Senior Pastor in 2007.  He stayed in that position until 2010 when he became the Senior Pastor at Mt. Tabor.  
 
Jason and Joy have four children: Jake, Judd, Jillian, and Jaclyn.  They enjoy spending time watching their kids play sports and Joy operates a commercial and residential janitorial business.  She also oversees the ladies ministries of the church, decorates the church, and leads a Triple Cord Group.
 
Jason has a strong vision to see Triple Cord discipleship groups started throughout the church.  He has a group of his own that meets weekly to pray together and discuss God’s Word and how it relates to everyday living.  Jason strongly believes that it is the preaching and teaching of God’s Word that changes people’s lives.  He is committed to expositional preaching that is relevant and applicable. 
 
Jason serves on the board of directors for Baptist International Evangelistic Ministries headquartered in Danville, IN and is a volunteer chaplain for the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.
 
Jason is also a big sports fan.  He loves the Tennessee Vols and the Atlanta Braves.  He also cheers on the Colts.

Beckmann FamilyHarrison Beckmann 
Music Director
Music, Discipleship, Technology

Harrison comes from the St. Louis, Missouri area. He grew up as the oldest of five boys, serving actively in his small local church in a variety of ministries, including music, where he learned to play a variety of instruments. He asked God to save him right around his 7th birthday and was baptized shortly thereafter. Throughout his teen years he battled addiction to various sins, but grew spiritually through the mentoring influence of his Pastor and other faithful people in his church.  It wasn’t until college, however, that he began to quit playing the game of Christian living and started to genuinely live a life for Jesus.

In college at Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina, he met his wife, Janae, through freshman music classes. They dated for three and a half years before getting married the day after they both graduated in May 2013. Harrison’s degree is in Church Music, and Janae’s is in Music Education. After they were married, Harrison did Post-Graduate work in Theater at BJU for a year while Janae taught music in a local public elementary school. In June of 2014, following God’s lead, they moved to Indiana to become part of the ministry at Mount Tabor. Harrison briefly worked part-time in a local bank, and then in November 2014, Harrison became the church’s full time Director of Music.

Harrison and Janae are expecting a baby boy in April. They are looking forward to his arrival with great excitement. Janae serves in the church as part of the music team and the choir, as well as helping with MTBC’s Master Clubs ministry for kids and participating in the church’s Triple Cord ministry. Together they enjoy St. Louis Cardinals baseball, cooking, and watching movies and shows. Harrison works on the side as an umpire for youth baseball in the Indianapolis area, as well as teaching a small number of music students. He’s also a golf addict.

Harrison’s vision for the church involves two primary areas: worship and discipleship. As the Music Director, Harrison desires the worship services at MTBC to be a time of encouragement and praise for the body of believers. He has a passion for congregational singing, where the music is not a performance, but a corporate act of worship among the saints. Harrison also places a high value on discipleship. He is the coordinator for the Triple Cord discipleship program and wants to train the church to be involved in each other’s lives every day of the week, encouraging and exhorting one another to do life the way God meant it. He understands that it takes daily commitment to grow in Christlikeness.
