Prayer & Dedication

On June 6, 2017, Jasper Ventures held a groundbreaking ceremony to begin construction on our new corporate headquarters. After a year of hard work alongside talented architects, engineers, contractors, and construction crews, the final product was complete. And it is more beautiful than anyone imagined. Jasper Ventures now has a new home and a new opportunity to honor God once again.

In a psalm of worship to God, David rightly proclaims, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” (Psalms 24:1, NIV) Everything on this earth belongs to our God and our King – our churches, our homes, and even our places of business.

Teams of men and women have worked countless hours to bring the vision of this new office building to life. However, the glory and credit for this project belongs to God. Long before this building was even a thought, one man decided to dedicate his business ventures to the glory of God.

In March 1992, our founder, Jon Jasper, embarked on unknown territory, starting a new engineering, procurement, and construction company. Jon knew that his business would be a failure without the blessing and help of God, so he dedicated it all to the service of God within the hydrocarbon industry. No one but God could have predicted the blessings that would follow.

Twenty-six years later, Jasper Ventures has grown into a Christ-centered company that employees over 250 people. Our company has been richly blessed, enduring hard times in the industry and remaining not only profitable but growing as we look toward the future. And every blessing received is thanks to God alone.

On June 18, 2018, we celebrated this latest addition to our facilities with a day of prayer and dedication to the Lord. Local business partners, ministry leaders, friends, and family gathered with us as we offered our new business home to God.

As beautiful as it may be, the building is more than fashionably designed brick, wood, and steel. This is where we work alongside friends and family, where we serve God in our careers, and where we share the Gospel with everyone we know – in business and in life.

May the words of Paul to the church in Colossea be true for every employee of Jasper Ventures: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” (Colossians 3:23-24, NIV)

Our office is not just a place of business; it is a place to serve God.
