Having grown up in the Texas Panhandle, Jakob spent most his ministry in West Texas prior to becoming NorthHaven’s pastor in 2018. He graduated from Logsdon Seminary at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas and from the Residency Program at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. His wife, Alyssa is a licensed physical therapist, and they have one daughter, Hadley, born in 2018.

Jakob found kindred spirits at NorthHaven. "It’s a community that values inclusivity and diversity and is ready to embrace the challenges and blessings of each. These are the people I want to journey with and invest my life with. I’m so grateful we found each other when we did."
