Elkhorn Campus Life Director
Growing up in small town Nebraska, faith for Jacob was something one did, not something by which one defined himself. As a sophomore in high school, there were two key adults who pulled Jacob in their lives, challenged him to own his faith, and set a new example on how to live life and live it well. Through years of school and working with non-believing people, God was creating in Jacob a heart for the lost and a passion to see their lives changed. Campus Life was a natural fit for the overflow from these experiences.
Jacob came on staff in February 2012 and works in the three middle schools and two high schools of Elkhorn. He has been working to connect with the believers and churches to expand the reach and influence both in the lives of the students and families of Elkhorn. He helps coach both the middle school track and football programs as well.
When not working hard in Elkhorn, Jacob love to play with his two year old son and dotes upon his newborn daughter. Once the kids are asleep, you will find Jacob working on various incomplete projects around the house and garage or getting dominated at a game of Cribbage with his wife Melissa.
