Gaming & God Volunteers

Gaming & God was never meant to be just a place for me to write my thoughts on God and video games, but rather as a haven for others in the same space. There are so many other perspectives on this topic that I want the world to read and learn from, and I hope you will discover them from our team members. Below you can learn a little bit about our staff and read their content, visit their social media or blog, podcast, etc.

As I add staff, this page will be a place to highlight them and any projects they are working on as well.

If you would like to be part of the team, please contact me here or via Twitter / Facebook.

For requirements or more details, please see this post.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.

My name is Jason Sommerfeldt, but everyone knows me as J.R. I am first and foremost a child of God who has been blessed with a beautiful family: a wife of 13 years, two sons and a daughter. I am also blessed to have worked as the Senior Pastor at Central Baptist Church in Quincy, Illinois for the last 3 years. Being a life-long gamer, I have sought to connect gaming with my faith, and not the other way around. In my pursuit to do this, I write for multiple online publications including Christ Centered Gamer, The Well-Red Mage, and my own website featuring gaming devotionals, Up, Up, Down, Down Devos. I am currently working on my first book, The 8-Bit Gospel: Seeing Christ Through World’s Most Popular Video Games.
