As Director of Student Ministries, Jake provides broad leadership to the church’s work of making middle and high schoolers into mature disciples of Christ. While much of his time is dedicated to the oversight of the church’s structured programs, events, groups, and classes for teenagers, Jake also works within the biblical paradigm, which recognizes that among any given church body, parents have the closest and most important ministry to their children.
Jake, who is originally from St. Joseph, Michigan, has been a part of the body at Christ’s Covenant Church since he began attending Grace College. In May 2015, Jake graduated with his Bachelors in Biblical Studies and a Masters in Ministry Studies. Jake enjoys kayaking, hiking, camping, playing board games, and spending time with his wife Ali and daughter Charlotte.
