END OF THE DECADE: LIFE-LINE WORLDWIDE

Nashville, TN-Wow! Is another decade really coming to a close?!!  Time sure has a way of rolling on when we were just there yesterday, right?  As I look back on this decade it’s been incredible times of highs and lows; defining again the many ways that God has richly blessed our Life-Line Worldwide family.  I have personally gone through alot in the music business with changes and rearrangements through learning and relearning new ways to release music to the world.  Getting it out to people of all walks of life and fans has never been easier; there are social media platforms, digital music platforms, and direct websites to get music into the hands of millions!  I’m writing music, working on albums in sessions and A&R with different artists. I’ve been on mission trips around the world which has completely shifted everything in my life.  I’m now an official author with my first book about marriage coming out in 2020 and I’m already working on the second book about hearing God’s voice for yourself in everyday life.  I never asked for it but when I said yes to God, he has opened my heart and mind to write.  The coffee company that I’m involved with is growing and growing every year; District Roasters is based out of Houston, TX and it’s really a labor of love because we get to give back to the countries where we purchase the beans from.  We are looking to expand even more this next year.  I want to say a big thank you to all of the artists, clients, friends and family who have been a part of our journey these past twelve years.  There is so much more I believe that God wants to do in our lives and I’m looking forward to the next chapter of this journey we call life.  God bless you all.

AFRICA MISSION TRIP JOURNAL: JUNE 2ND-13TH 2014

JUNE 2ND:
So the journey began driving to meet Greg Davidson (CFO) at Central South Distribution offices. We headed to the airport to get on a plane to Atlanta, GA and then sixteen hours direct to Johannesburg, South Africa. On the way to Atlanta I sat next to a girl named Morgan Kopitzke who works in the music business as well as an entrepreneur in health products. She also leads worship at her church and her Uncle plays keys for Peter Cetera as well as several other well-known artists. How cool is that? After the quick thirty-minute flight to Atlanta we headed out to our flight to Africa. When I sat down the girl sitting next to me was headed to Mozambique to study to train disciples which was awesome how God would place me on two flights with spiritual connections! Surprisingly, the flight went rather quickly after watching a few movies, reading a book, listening to some new music on my ipod, and falling fast asleep to awaken to breakfast being served and only 2 hours left.

LIFE-LINE WORLDWIDE GOES TO AFRICA JUNE 2ND-13TH 2014!!

llww-new-webimage001 (2)Nashville, TN-Music Business veteran, missions minister, and owner of Life-Line Worldwide, Jason Hollis is heading back to Africa for a trip that is going to be nothing less than epic!  “This trip we will be doing something revolutionary, we are partnering with some amazing ministries and businessmen from Africa Vision Foundation, Central South Distribution, Long Miles Coffee Project, Soli Deo Ventures and more.  What is happening is we are beginning a process to distribute coffee to America to retail stores, churches, coffee houses, or anywhere we can get this amazing product out to coffee fanatics!   The other side of this amazing venture is that we want to give a huge amount of money back to the countries where we source the coffee because for far too long farmers have been paid very little to support their families.  We want to create a new business model so that the people of Africa become self-sustainable and are paid well for their work” says Jason Hollis.  On the ground the team will go to the farms and see from crop to cup the entrire process of making the coffee including seeing the washing stations and the planting of the trees themselves.  This will be a new way of mixing ministry, business, and distribution for the coming generations.
