Our guest for today’s episode is Jason Storbakken. Jason spent nearly ten years as the Director of Compassionate Care at The Bowery Mission where he oversaw programs and provided pastoral care to the poorest and most vulnerable New Yorkers. As minister to the homeless, he learned what it means to truly be part of a beloved community.
Since we talked with Jason last summer, he has taken a position as pastor at Manhattan Mennonite Fellowship in New York City. The church is part of the historic peace church movement, oriented toward peace and social justice, non-violent resistance, and faith formation as key themes of Christian witness.

What is Sandbox Cooperative Podcast?
In an often contentious, fractured society, Sandbox Cooperative seeks to build an extended community of listeners; knocking down walls of division with curiosity and conversation. Twice a month we explore topics that people are actually talking about, considering them through a lens of spirituality, humor and discovery. You’ll discover a permission giving platform to explore new ideas with an ever-growing perspective of our world, and as the hosts regularly say, “there is always more room in the Sandbox.”
