Get to know Jason Dyck with 10 questions!

What are you reading right now?
I love insight, and I find books to be a great source. Books I am currently reading are: Paul and Gender by Cynthia Westfall for the second time, Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes by Richards and O’Brien, and A Preliminary Look at Flourishing Congregations in Canada by Thiessen, Wong, McAlpine and Walker.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?
Hmm, so many. The ability to sing at a professional level.

Who’s someone you really admire?
Andy Stanley in the areas of leading and communicating. And because I think he’s becoming anabaptist.

What was your favorite band 10 years ago?
Tobymac

What’s something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before?
I stared at this question for a while wondering why I don’t have an answer. I think the things I want to do are all things I’ve done before. Maybe the thing I need to do is consider new things to do. I’ll go with that.          

What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
Anywhere I can find Karina. I found her at the Grand Canyon a couple of times. That first glimpse of the Grand Canyon is a moment that kind of stunned me, it’s full of awe.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?
Spend your capacity (time, resources, ability, affection, etc) on and for the benefit of another person. This is submission.

How do you like your eggs?
Over medium.

What’s your favorite breakfast cereal?
Whatever the kids haven’t finished.

Our supper and study group is going through the Gospel of Luke right now.  I just finished re-reading Faithful Presence by David Fitch. Starting to read The first 90 days, by Michael Watkins (because it is my first 90 days 😊 ) Also, I read Ephesians on a regular basis, just because.

Playing the guitar as good as my son!

Who’s someone you really admire?
I had the privilege of having breakfast meetings with Henry Schmidt (past president of Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary) during my time at the seminary in Fresno, California. I remember well his authenticity and willingness to share the joys and struggles of leadership. He also had a way of celebrating how God’s grace is real and evident in his life.

I also experienced and observed him believing in younger leaders, praying for them, encouraging them, and cheering them along the way.

Catch a fish. I am seriously fishing challenged! I really enjoy being together with other people and I’m really good at casting, but I’m horrible at actually catching fish.

What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
The beach at San Simeon Bay in California. I love the ocean, and we spent many Saturday’s with friends at that small rather out of the way beach. The memories made together are so good! 

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?
“Be gracious with yourself Cam!” 

How do you like your eggs?
Over medium or scrambled. 

What’s your favorite breakfast cereal?
Fruit loops, simply for health reasons.
