We'd love for
you to visit our
Welcome! We are honored that you are checking Southland out! My name is Jason Koerner and I’m the Campus Pastor for the Richmond Campus. I think you’ll find our staff, our volunteers, and all our people to be real, friendly, and down-to-earth. We enjoy being around each other and we care for one another and our community. Let me tell you a little more about myself and then a little more about what makes our campus unique. Then, I’ll look forward to meeting you and hearing your story!
I grew up in Cincinnati. My dad was a music minister at my home church and my mom played the piano every Sunday. Even though I am 6’8”, I’d rather pick up a pair of drum sticks or guitar instead of a basketball. I grew up loving music and theater—and still do. My dad grew up a farmer in northwest Ohio, so hard work was ingrained into me. To this day, I enjoy fixing things myself and doing manual labor. I was a Children's Pastor for over 22 years so I have a huge heart for kids and families. I have two girls in college and my wife works in addiction recovery.
