About Me

Jason Martin
Christ Follower
Children’s Pastor

Doing what I do and loving it.

My name is Jason Martin. I am 37 years old and live in Apple Valley, MN. I have been a children’s pastor since 1997 but have been involved in children’s ministry for over 20 years. I am the oldest of 9 children and taught my first VBS class when I was 12. I serve as Children’s Pastor at the Apple Valley Campus of River Valley Church, a life-giving, multi-site, mega-church with 5 campuses in the Twin Cities area. I am available to speak at your summer camps, conferences, retreats, worker trainings and more.

I am married to a wonderful woman named Rachel. We truly have the model marriage. I know that sounds cliche, but it is true. We have three beautiful daughters Kathryn (13), Lauren (8), and Trinity (5). We also have a little Chihuahua named Katy.

I love sports, cycling, video games, camping, and reading.
