Campus Minister | Worship Leader | Digital Content Creator

Hi, I’m Jasmin! I’m a minister and Bible teacher, blogger and digital content creator, singer-songwriter, and worship leader. My greatest passion in life is to know and love Jesus deeply and help others do the same. That’s why I’ve felt called by God since the age of 15 to devote my life to being a minister of the gospel–to be a shepherd of His people, a teacher of His Word, an intercessor in prayer, and to minister through music. I said yes to His call back then, and by His grace I haven’t looked back. He’s allowed me to be mentored in and to serve in preaching and teaching, discipleship, and music ministries in some capacity, either as a volunteer or as my occupation, since high school.

I was born into a Christian family and raised in New York City, so I’ve always carried a unique mix of passion for Jesus and the Church with a love for the arts and culture. My fascination with performing arts, the music industry, and a deep desire to minister through Christian music and media led me to attend college in New Haven, CT where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music Industry and Sound Recording. I was also heavily involved as a student leader in my college ministry serving in worship, prayer, discipleship, and preaching throughout my undergraduate studies. Through that experience, my heart to invest in the spiritual growth of college students/young adults was forged and continues to this day.

Now I live in Kansas City, MO, where I relocated in 2015 to work in full-time ministry. As a campus minister and worship leader with Luke18 Project, I give leadership to our student training programs, direct our worship ministries, and oversee community life for our college ministry staff. I also have the privilege of mentoring the next generation, by training them in prayer, worship, and other practical ministry skills, teaching the Bible, leading worship, interceding in prayer for college campuses, and doing one-on-one and small group discipleship.

With that foundation of in-person ministry in place, the Lord invited me to step into online ministry as well. In 2016, I started a blog and social media platform called Living Authentic Christianity, which equips seekers and believers in their faith journeys by explaining key topics in Christianity in a simple way, teaching practical tips to follow Jesus in everyday life, and crafting thoughtful conversations at the intersection of the arts, culture, and faith.

In addition to running the blog, I get to serve the Christian music industry as a staff writer at NewReleaseToday, where I interview Christian artists and write album reviews and song devotionals about Christian music. I was also a staff writer at Marked Ministry Magazine from 2020-2022, where I wrote about faith and culture. I was privileged to release my debut EP of original songs, All For You, to streaming services in June 2021. And I formally received my credentials an ordained minister of the gospel in May 2024 with Christ For The Nations Network.

Thank you for your prayers and financial partnership with me as I obey God’s calling on my life. Serving God and His people is my greatest joy and highest privilege and I could not do it without you!

“…I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives.” (Titus 1:1)
