Jason and Erin have been married since 2006 and have four children (Dani 12, Cristian 10, Olin 8 and Keli 6). Jason first visited Romania as part of a construction team in 2017, where he developed a heart for the ministry at Camp Falcon Rock. Shortly after, Jason brought Erin along on a short trip to experience what was happening in Romania and quickly they felt God giving them His heart for what He was doing in the lives of the youth in Romania. 2018 presented the Bergman’s with an opportunity to serve together as a family for three months over the summer. Being on the ground as a family provided an opportunity to get their feet wet in terms of what village life and ministry in Romania would look like. Upon returning home the Bergman’s continued to pray into what the Lord had in store for their family.
Jason’s Grandfather co-founded a Christian camp in Alberta where Jason spent many of his summers as a youth attending as a camper and serving as a volunteer maintenance worker. Over the years Jason served in many capacities such as counselor, dean, advisor and board member. Jason worked in construction for a number of years and then decided to attend University and graduated with a degree in Engineering. By looking at Jason’s camp ministry experience and his construction/engineering knowledge we see this opportunity as a great way to steward his gifts and abilities and believe that God has uniquely prepared Jason for this good work.
Erin also served at the same Christian camp in Alberta and had the opportunity to be a camper, counselor and dean several Leadership in Training camps. Erin has also been involved in Bible Study Fellowship for many years and has a strong passion for Christ’s followers to know and love God’s Word. Erin attended Alberta Bible College in Calgary and received a Certificate in Biblical Studies. God has given Erin a special place in her heart for Romania from her first visit there.
