Jason Robertson

Associate Professor

Theology and Philosophy
M.A., 2011, George Fox Evangelical Seminary
B.A., 1999, Mount Vernon Nazarene University

Professor Robertson joined the Olivet faculty in 2010 after serving eight years in pastoral ministry. He serves a dual role, teaching classes in both the Christian Ministry and Theology departments. He serves as the lead professor for Christian Formation (THEO-101) and is also the coordinator for the teaching assistantships in the School of Theology and Christian Ministry. He also teaches the Introduction to Christian Worship, Ecclesiology and Eschatology courses.

His years in ministry are marked by engagement with those who have a postmodern worldview. These interactions have given Professor Robertson a unique perspective from which to teach those preparing for ministry. He continues to be active in conversations that deal with the intersection of faith and culture. He is an influential voice among leaders on the region and has been an invited participant in theological dialogue at the denominational level.

He holds professional memberships in the Wesleyan Theological Society, Wesleyan Philosophical Society and the American Academy of Religion.

In his leisure time, Professor Robertson thrives in the outdoors — backpacking, kayaking, mountain biking and hunting are some of his favorite activities — especially in the Pacific Northwest.

He and his wife, Jenelle, share the love of traveling and being food connoisseurs. They enjoy discovering new restaurants together wherever they go. Their three sons, Zachary, Colton, and Bennett, round out the busy Robertson household.
