New Elder Election   |  January 20, 2019

Jason T. Zelenka

In our services on Sunday, January 20, our elders will conduct a brief congregational meeting for all Harborside members, recommending that Jason T. Zelenka be added to our Board of Elders.  Please read Jason’s bio below:

Jason Zelenka was raised in upstate New York and went to college in Albany, NY, receiving his medical degree from State University of New York Upstate Medical College at Syracuse.  He and his wife, Alex, attended medical school together and became engaged during their final year of school; they married following their internship year at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis.

Jason and Alex became believers and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in 1997 during their first year (Internship year) of training.  They became active members at Traders Point Christian Church and their church plant in downtown Indianapolis called Common Ground Christian Church.  They found their mutual passion for serving Jesus in foreign countries through medical mission trips–trips not only to address physical needs, but also to sincerely share the good news of Jesus Christ through word and deed.

The Zelenkas moved to Clearwater in 2003 when Jason joined Clearwater Cardiovascular Consultants.  They have been married for 21 years and have 2 wonderful boys, Johnny and Matthew.  They joined Harborside Christian Church in 2005 and have been active in supporting local outreach and foreign mission trips.  Jason has been involved in youth ministry with Student Motion.  

Jason adds, “I am honored to be considered to serve as an Elder.  Alex and I are willing and eager to serve, and it is our prayer that we would live lives worthy of the calling that we have received.”
