Welcome Jay.  Tell us more about you personally so we can get to know you better.

 

I am the founder of JABHA Creativity.  What is a JABHA?  It is the first initial of the first name of each of us in our family, in birth order. J=Jay, A=Angie, B=Brittany, H=Haley, and A=Aaron.  All of us has a part to do with the organization.  I am founder, dean, and senior designer.  My wife is the community outreach director.  Brittany is the media director.  Haley is a marketing associate, and Aaron is a game tester.  We formed a Christian game design organization and are also working on building a game design school.

 

How did I get into Christian game design?  Let's go back to 1982 and I played a game called Dungeons and Dragons.  My favorite character to play was a neutral good aligned cleric.  Thirty-two years later I am an ordained minister that makes RPG games.

 

Two projects are close to my heart right now. PROJECT: SHOW GAMING LOVE where we help brings games showing love and encouragement to give to ministries in Liberia, Nigeria, Pakistan, and India. PROJECT: I WANT TO GAME DESIGN where we help students around the world achieve their goals of attending game design school.  We are getting ready to launch a massive funding campaign for these projects.

 

I have served as a youth pastor, parking ministry division director, new members, instructor, etc.  My wife and I have been married for 25 years.  If y'all have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

 

Have a blessed day.

At this time I have retired my 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, 12-, 20-, and 100-sided die.  We are currently focusing on computer games.  My eldest daughter is directing the LARPing category.

 

You never know OldSchool2, if 80's and 90's 2D style is making a comeback, maybe board games can too.  Something I will speak to the team about.  We are expanding to non-traditional genres for games: tourism, magazine supplement, business training, etc.  We have the need to build a large team.  Most of our team members are from the Philippines, at this time.  They want to make Christian themed games.
