Jason Malec is Managing Director of Mission U.S. at American Bible Society. In that role, Malec oversees ABS’s mission to partner with God and the Church in seeing 100 million people actively engaging his word over the next decade. He has worked with ExploreGod.com, New Denver Church, North Point Ministries, and a variety of PR and tech startups back when that was super cool (at least in his mind).

They just moved to Philadelphia, and are still wondering why people put something called “Whiz” on a sandwich.
