Merry Christmas

December 24, 2017 at 02:08PM

Merry Christmas Eve to You And Yours!


White Dove in Full Flight by photographer Dorian Stretton

Merry Christmas Eve! I am grateful to Father God for blessing our family with my faithful mother and older sister. Also to my late father, who passed on this year on Father's Day to be with the Lord.

Six years ago, I prayed a personal prayer on behalf of our family unto the Lord. I thanked Father God in advance for His faithfulness to watch over His Word to establish it.

Mom, because of your faith, even the size of a mustard seed, you sowed into the lives of our family, my sister and I, and how you brought us to church. Though I fell asleep half the time during services, I vividly recall how my sister sung hymns unto the Lord and how she demonstrated love …

Threefold Ministry

November 15, 2017 at 04:39PM

How we carry ourselves is a matter of our character. I just came off from a deep phone conversation with my dear friend and a great mentor. Offline, I have also been journaling about how I am carrying myself today as a man. It is an issue of my heart that I am manning up and wanting to take ownership of and work to establish. I am intentional with Father God to work on these areas in my life. God knows that for me if any of it is not of standard then I deem it unacceptable for me. If it's not of God's standard, it's good news that there is room for me to grow and mature, because none of us living today, have arrived. It is threefold....

1. Career: How I carry myself on and off stage.
2. Place of Worship: How I carry and conduct myself at church and outside of…

Veterans Day Legacy And Human Beatbox Workshops

November 11, 2017 at 07:00AM

I hope we, you and I, are able spend this Veteran's Day to reflect upon the brave men and women for their great service in our United States Armed Forces in the branches of Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. If you are a veteran or know someone who served, please feel free to pay homage to him and her by scrolling to the bottom of this post to leave a blog comment on this Veterans Day. I also share in this post my homage to an Army Veteran who is very dear to my heart and I also share about my recent desire to join the United States Air Force.

Happy Birthday Jake Shimabukuro

November 4, 2017 at 04:51AM

Happy Birthday Jake Shimabukuro! Did you know, exactly 11 years ago on his birthday, Jake Shimabukuro and I first performed together? It is considered a fan favorite and it is still talked about today. I still run into people who were at that show 11 years ago. In fact I ran into our old friend Matt last night and Matt talked with me about my performance with Jake 11 years ago. Also, did you know, Jake Shimabukuro was also the very first musician I've ever collaborated live with. Was I nervous then? Heaven's yes. Jake has always been one of my heroes before I jumped into the scene and he still is today. Earlier this year I gave Jake a surprise visit at Iolani School. People buzzed about our photo taken together and our fans want us to do something together. How a…

Jason Tom Top 25 Video Marathon

November 3, 2017 at 09:15PM


Jason Tom beatboxing live and headlining Art After Dark at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Ever ran a marathon or watched a marathon of your favorite television series? Growing up, I watched TV marathons for "I Love Lucy" and the 1950's classic "Adventures of Superman" that starred George Reeves. When I reflected I remember how my late grandmother on my father's side enjoyed watching the black and white version of Adventures of Superman with me. On this year's Father's Day I lost my father and this marathon is the result and the fruit of my father's labor of love and hard work. Marathon? Yes, I am running this marathon of my Top 25 videos compiled by the fans and our community on my blog here. Enjoy, come and join me in running this marathon. I'd love to hear fro…

Nine Year Walk With God

October 31, 2017 at 09:22PM


With Pastor Art Sepulveda at Word of Life Christian Center


Romans 12:2, ​"do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed in the renewing of your mind."
Jason Tom at Word of Life Emerge Youth Rally

To be intentional with Father God is to be intimate with God the Son and to be counseled by God the Holy Spirit.

When I decided to get intentional with Jesus is when the devil's plan of destruction over my life failed. Not overnight. Had the devil's plans succeeded last year I would not be alive to write my first faith blog post today, literally, and October 24th marked my ninth year intentional walk with Father God. The devil flunked the course when Jesus rescued and avenged me on the behalf of me and my family. Jesus is our …

Amp Speaker Hunting

Jason Tom performed live beatboxing for American veterans at US Vets Barber's Point Kapolei. Photo credit: Brian Bat

We've heard of job hunting, but what about amp speaker hunting? As mentioned in my new blog series called "The Bachelorette" I love to shop and I love to shop for music equipment, microphones, microphone cords, headphones, amplifiers, and speakers. Did you know that finding the right speaker and amplifier is one of the most frequently asked question by beatboxers from around the world? For those who don't know what beatboxing is and what a beatboxer does, a beatboxer is a person who vocally sings rhythm, melody and musical instruments purely with his or her human voice. Yes, we are also known as vocal percussionists and our musical art form has…

What Would We Do On Our First Date?

October 27, 2017 at 11:10PM

I want to thank those of you who are reading, commenting and responding to my first post of my new blog series, "The Bachelorette."

In fact Sheryl commented, "Great blog post! Awesome way to put yourself out there. What other things do you enjoy outside of beatboxing and being a mathematician? Maybe talk about what you'd do on a first date. Perhaps some interesting fun facts about you. I think the single ladies out there would love to know more about the Jason Tom outside of his career :)"

​This post here is in response to Sheryl's comment. Single ladies and bachelorettes reading this, leave blog comments on what you would like for us to do on our first date? If not with me, then someone you'd be interested in. Please feel free to have fun with this. If you…

To The Bachelorette

October 25, 2017 at 12:24PM

To the bachelorette out there, seek, find, get to know, and marry the bachelor and man of valor who is a mathematician that loves the person of God, first and foremost. He also has to know how to moonwalk and beatbox.

He looks and sounds like this... watch and listen to the video below:

Why a mathematician?
​1. He'll multiply with you.
2. He will not get flustered or frustrated by difficult problems, no matter how complex.
3. He is solution minded and in a relationship he is steadfast that the relationship is compatible and peaceful.
4. He will subtract the negative integer distraction.
5. He will add quality time into his productive sche…

I recently filmed on location my HI*Sessions episodes at the Koʻolau Ballrooms & Conference Center in Kaneohe.

Jason Tom is an outgoing guy who is not afraid to make new friends. He is a passionate guy who loves to share life with others through his music & faith. It's been really nice getting to know Jason & all the dope places God is taking him!

To me Jason Tom is a very talented young man that's on a mission from God to not only entertain but to touch the heart and spirit of every single person in his path. He understands that life doesn't always turn out the way we want or expect it to be but that with God all things are possible. He truly cares about people and is filled with the love of God and that is why I feel he does what he does. That to me is who Jason Tom is.

Happy Birthday Kiyoshi! My brother in Christ Jesus, fellowship and faith! I honor this Mighty Man of God on this special Day.
Happy Birthday to this Mighty Man of God, Honor, Strength, and Valor John Lum! I venerate and celebrate this brother in Christ, faith, truth, and love on this special Day. This photo is of us when John Lum sent me to my fourth Encounter weekend. Praise the Lord! -Jason
Had a powerful Life Group with Nate and Kiyoshi, equipped Men of Honor and Strength! We are strengthened Today with the charge of first things first that Father God has deposited into our hearts as we seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness. We're stepping up this season to run our race to accomplish Kingdom goals. Thank you Holy Spirit for showing up and showing out on this Day that the Lord has made called Today. God, thank You for crowning our year with Your Goodness. Jesus, we give you all the Praise and Glory, acknowledging you in all our ways and we thank you Lord for ordering our every step.

Anointed to go, we've prepared our hearts for classes, services and meetings tomorrow. Our @WordofLifeHi Downtown Honolulu offer 7am, 9am, 11am, and 6pm services. We also have campuses on Oahu in Mililani, West Oahu and Kapolei. Kahului on Maui. Kona on Hawaii Island. Santa Barbara and San Francisco in California.  Overseas in Yokohama, Japan and Okinawa. Blessings to you this year of new beginnings.  Also I lift up @cesarcaste, @claudiacaste, @art_sepulveda, @kunasepulveda, @wallymatanza, @pmatanza, @isaiahmatanza808, and Nicole Farmer in prayer for the International #G12Conference in Bogota, Columbia.
Calling all Mighty Men, iron sharpens iron. Join me and fellow Mighty Men of valor at our Life Group for strengthening today at Ala Moana Center, 3pm. Be edified, encouraged and exhorted with a charge for this season of new beginnings. Crown our year this Day with God's goodness. See you there!

Here is a scriptural prayer for us:
As I prophesy Your Word, great things happen. I am a vessel for You Lord, You are my potter, and I am Your clay. Though my outward man maybe decaying, my inward man is renewed day by day. My youth is renewed like the eagles and like Moses, my eyes are not growing dim nor is my strength gone. I will not forget any of the Lord's benefits because You forgave all my iniquities, and You healed all my diseases. You satisfy my desires with good things. You redeemed my life from the pit, and crowned me with Your love and compassion. I release Christ in me, and I can hear the sound of an abundance of blessings. Praise the Lord, it is coming my way! Glory be to God I am reigning in life through Jesus Christ.
#latepost Post prayer night of prayer week with brothers Kiyoshi, Nathan and John Lum at Word of Life.
Thank you Pastor Wally Matanza for pouring onto the men you've led and are mentoring, including me, today. Thank you for not ever giving up your faith in me and for exhortation. I pray for supernatural protection, provision and traveling mercies as you, Patti and Isaiah reach nations. I recall when I first arrived at Word of Life and how one of the leaders you've mentored consolidated me. I will not forget how Jarmal impacted my life and my early walk with God as a baby Christian. He eventually got married and moved to the mainland. Then 2016 was when God called me back to your team. And from 2016 through 2017 the Holy Spirit counseled me to remain faithful to the leadership of John Lum. The Holy Spirit then counseled me on what I needed to do when I acknowledged Him in all of my ways and Father God ordered my steps. Then I got called to step up this season as one of your 12 and one of Word of Life's 144 Life Group leaders, an irrevocable call. As a man of God, it is an honor to serve among our team of mighty men of valor Rick, Paul, Shawn, John, Jordan, Mario, Sonny, Laneke, Michael, Nathan, Jason C., and Louis. I miss you Darius! This year 2018 is a year of new beginnings. Thank you Jesus for your glory, kindness, goodness, presence, and power!
Congratulations to Maryknoll basketball point guard Rhianne. Awesome victory at the Maryknoll Senior Game with the Punahou Buff 'N Blue! Joined here with my Life Group brother Nathan.
Great game! Maryknoll Spartan Basketball Senior Game versus Punahou Buff 'N Blue. Congratulations to the Maryknoll Spartan Basketball Seniors! Watched this game with senior athletes Taylor, Ciera, Kayla, and company. Big up to my Life Group brother Nathan for the invite.
Spoke at Waipahu High School's Career Day! Thank you Marauders!
