Jason’s Bio

Jason Pratt headshot

Jason Pratt is an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy as an Aerospace Engineering Duty Officer with the following credentials: Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University, Masters of Science in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, graduate of the United States Naval Test Pilot School, member of the Navy’s Space Cadre and  Navy selectee for astronaut candidacy in 2013.

As an active duty member of the Navy, Jason takes his oath of office seriously and also must give a disclaimer that the views he shares when speaking on behalf of The Anvil Ministry, the views expressed are entirely his own and do not reflect the views of the United States Navy or Federal Government.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the simplicity of the Gospel of saving grace in Jesus Christ, but Jason’s experience and knowledge does make him uniquely qualified to speak on both biblical and scientific matters.

As a Naval Flight Officer and a graduate of the United States Naval Test Pilot School, Jason has flown over thirty types of fixed wing, rotary wing and glider aircraft including: F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18F Super Hornet, F-15E Strike Eagle, F-16D Fighting Falcon, T-38 Talon, UH-1Y Venom, B-25 Mitchell, and U-6A DeHavilland Beaver.


As a former and permanently backslidden atheist Jason had placed his hope in his knowledge and achievements, but when Christ saved him he found the freedom of new life that surpasses the thrill and excitement of any fighter jet he’s ever flown. His testimony is one of turning from his own abilities and confidence in himself, and putting his trust and faith in Jesus Christ alone and certainty of the written, revealed and living Word.

Jason received his undergraduate degree at Penn State University, where he met his wife Sherri. The Pratts have three children, and are currently stationed in southern California.

Jason was a self proclaimed and devout atheist until the age of 26. He now devotes as much time as possible to the Lord’s service, by assisting the chaplains in his commands, volunteering at his church and speaking at churches and Christian conferences, encouraging believers to be informed by Scripture, bold in their faith and courageous in witnessing.

  • Hi Jason, What a pleasure to have you on WVW. You’re testimony has been forwarded to an atheist friend of mine. He has requested more information concerning you and consented to receive a bible and read it. God is at work. God bless you. PS. My husband Col.WP Smith still MIA in South East Asia… though a presumptive declaration of death came in 1974. I have some experience with the military. If you go on line to Wall of Faces he is pictured there Lt. Col Warren P. Smith, Jr. Wonderful tributes beneath his name and meritorious battle action record really worth the reading. Thank you for your service!

    • Thank you for your comment and for forwarding my testimony. The salvation of every soul is such a miracle and just as Paul declared he was the chief of all sinners I believe that God can save the most vile of sinners including a dedicated atheist as I once was. I will pray for your friend! Thank you for the service to our country that your husband and you have given. Sorry to hear of his missing in action. I have a dear friend who spent over 5 years in prison in and around Hanoi. I will check out the tributes to Lt Col Warren Smith.
