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, 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). Married for 20 years, Jason and Meredith have three kids in high, middle and elementary schools. They just moved to Philadelphia, and are still wondering why people put something called “Whiz” on a sandwich.

Since 1816, American Bible Society has worked to make the Bible available to every person in a language and format each can understand and afford, so all people may experience its life-changing message. One of the nation’s first and most enduring ministries, today’s American Bible Society provides resources across a variety of platforms enabling first-time readers and seasoned theologians alike to engage with the bestselling book of all time.
