Jake serves as the Location Pastor for Mission City Church, Bennington location. He grew up in north Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama. He and his wife, Laura-Ashley, moved to Bennington in the spring of 2014. That move has been nothing short of incredible. They, along with a few other friends, started Summit Church. That church is now known as the Bennington location for Mission City Church! The rest, as they say, is history!
Growing up in a Christian home, some form of faith has always been present in Jake’s life. As he would put it, it wasn’t until his time away at college that he began to learn what it means to truly follow Jesus. Since then, Jake has been able to travel the world and spread the faith that has changed his life. It is because of those experiences that Jake is excited to serve his community as a part of ACT. What an honor it is to serve alongside ACT in an attempt to express love, grace, and hope, to a community that so desperately needs it!
Jake has a passion to engage college students, learn about leadership, video games, and a good movie. If you really want to get him fired up, take him out to the golf course! Or a good burger joint.
