My name is Jason Boothman – husband to an amazing woman (Melissa) and father to three wonderful children (Keira, Kanaan, and Korrah). Originally hailing from southern Michigan, I completed my Graphic Design degree from Huntington College in 2003 and have lived here ever since. When asked what I do I often just tell people “I work with computers”, but my official title is Web Developer/Programmer/Analyst at Huntington University. In my free time I enjoy saving the world from imaginary threats (playing video games), learning of others’ heroic exploits (reading books), throwing plastic at baskets (disc golf), and crafting delicious comestibles (cooking). My family and I began attending College Park Church about 3 years ago and instantly felt at home. We have no doubt that you will too. Email Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org

Sara Payne (Board Secretary)
I’m a native born Hoosier. I’m the oldest of four kids and grew up in Indianapolis, IN. I attended Indiana University in Bloomington and received my Bachelor’s in English Education. After college, I spent two years living overseas in Budapest, Hungary working with Cru and then worked as a high school teacher on the southside of Indianapolis for 9 years. I attended IUPUI to get my Masters in Educational Leadership. After marrying my amazing husband, Ryan, I began working online for Magnify Learning, which provides PBL professional development for teachers. In my free time I love workout classes, drinking good coffee, cooking, being outdoors, growing plants, traveling, and spending time with loved ones. I grew up in a loving Catholic family who taught us about Jesus, and I went to a Catholic school up until 8th grade. However much of my faith was filtered through a works-oriented lens due to the teachings of the Catholic church at my school, in my church, and within my own family. I approached salvation as the cross + _________. In college, I began to actively explore what it meant to follow Christ. It wasn’t a specific moment, but many moments that led me to a place where I could finally understand I could never be perfect and earn God’s love. That understanding of grace changed my life. I began attending College Park early on in my dating relationship with my husband, Ryan, and when we were married in May of 2016 it was a natural decision for us to keep attending. I am grateful to be a part of this community, and I love the people in it. Email Sara at email@example.com
