Mason serves as the deaf pastor at Oakwood, leading people into a more mature relationship with Jesus Christ. He and his wife Bonnie have one son, James.
I was adopted by my mother as a baby and praise God for the way He used this in His plan for my life. When I was a teenager I met a friend who invited me to attend her church. I met the leader of the deaf ministry there, who was also an interpreter in the public school system. She was a great testimony and guided me to the place of salvation. I accepted Christ as my Savior in 1989. I graduated from Harvest Deaf Bible College and then moved to Cleveland, Ohio to work and train at a deaf church in Akron, Ohio. I was able to be intern pastor there for almost two years. It was tremendous training in Akron, and then God called me to begin a deaf church in Rome, Georgia in January 2004. The Lord has really blessed the ministry He has given us with Deaf Baptist Fellowship for 8 years. In November 2010, the Lord has called us to start a new deaf church in Cleveland area.
