Pastor Jason Murphy
Senior Pastor of Open Door Baptist Church
Pastor Jason Murphy and his wife Mary were saved and trained through the ministry of Open Door Baptist Church. Pastor Murphy earned his Pastoral Diploma upon graduating from the Open Door Bible Institute, and holds a Master’s in Biblical Studies and a Doctorate of Ministry from Open Bible College International. He served as an Associate Pastor at Open Door under the leadership of Dr. Ken Blue for seven years, prior to accepting the position of Senior Pastor in October of 2008. Pastor Murphy grew up in the Harbour Pointe community, located in beautiful Mukilteo. He presently resides with his family in Lynnwood. Aside from the ministry, Pastor enjoys golfing, fly fishing, and spending time with his wife and children. His favorite verse is Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” It is Pastor Murphy’s passion that through Open Door Baptist Church, people will be saved, grow spiritually and serve the Lord.
