Alumni Spotlight: Kenneth Jasko, '78, Chair of CU Nova Alumni Board

By Erin Conner 

On Sunday, January 21, at 5 pm EST, the Christian Union Nova Alumni Board is leading their quarterly virtual meeting for alumni and friends of the ministry via Zoom. Campus updates and student testimonies will be shared to take a closer look at how God is working at Princeton through Christian Union Nova's student leadership ministry.  

The CU Nova Board is a team of Princeton Christian alumni who desire to see the Gospel of Christ shine brightly at Princeton University and who seek sweeping spiritual transformation for its students, staff, and faculty. Kenneth Jasko, '78, Mike Vincent, '10, Vince Naman, '82, Edward (Ted) Duffield, '58,  Tiffany Agyarko, '23, and Betsy Salazar, '10, currently serve on the Board and are committed to furthering the development of programs focused on alumni, as well as furthering the following objectives: advancing God's work at Princeton University, transitioning graduates well, and developing Christian leaders to influence our nation for God's glory, helping to bring revival.

Ken Jasko, the Board's Chair, invites all interested Princeton alumni to join this movement.

 Jasko grew up in Mountainside, New Jersey, and graduated from Princeton University in 1978 with a BA in biology. Ken is married to his wife, Louise, a mostly retired high school science teacher. They have three children: Timothy, Andrew, and Christina, and four grandchildren. Prior to starting Monmouth Worship Center in 1985, Jasko worked as a campus minister and assistant pastor in Princeton, NJ.  Jasko has a passion to see Princeton University thrive in God's truth and love.

Jasko encourages Princeton alumni to get involved with Christian Union's vision and mission, personally noting these three reasons:

"First, Princeton students need Christ desperately. Christian Union is doing a great job of evangelizing and discipling students. Students there now are young versions of us old alumni! Let’s reach them in these key years while we can.

Second, support is a way to influence Princeton to follow its original mission of glorifying God. If we reach students one by one, we can change the university. This is a way to give back to Princeton.

Lastly, I wish CU Nova at Princeton had been there when I was a student to help me grow in Christ. My college years were the key years where I became solidly committed to Christ, and I desire this for other students."
