Jason Belcher

Pastor of Small Groups and Emerging Adults

Jason is passionate about reaching and discipling the next generation of Christian leaders and influencers.  As the Pastor of Small Groups and Emerging Adults, he has the tremendous privilege of helping people think missionally about their career, family, and future.

He first came to The River in 2009 as a young college grad who had just moved across the country.  In the three years that he attended The River, he married his college sweetheart Luci, began working in student ministry at SJSU, and served on staff with The River for a short season as an interim worship leader.  Jason and Luci relocated to San Diego in 2012 where he continued to work with college students in campus ministry.  They returned to San Jose in 2019 with a clear invitation to be a part of what God is doing at The River and with a deep hunger to see revival in Silicon Valley.

You might run into Jason at REI gearing up for his next Yosemite backpacking adventure, at a pub watching English Premier League soccer (go Blues), or at a neighborhood park with his kids Quinn and Jude.  Or you’ll find him studying at a coffee shop as he wraps up his Masters of Arts in Theology through Fuller Theological Seminary.
