Jakob's deep desire is to see people experience and encounter God. After being arrested on drug charges and nearly dying from a drug overdose, Jakob had a dramatic encounter with God. This single encounter broke the hold of addiction and confirmed the call of God on his life.

Jakob and Leah are both graduates of Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas. Jakob spent several years traveling and ministering alongside his mentor, the late revivalist and evangelist Steve Hill. They served as Senior Pastors of a growing and fruitful church in Central Illinois for seven years.

The couple has led and taught evangelism teams at Christ for the Nations and traveled extensively as evangelists both locally and internationally. Jakob also served as the staff evangelist and Saturday Night Pastor at Trinity Church in Cedar Hill, Texas, under the leadership of Pastor Jim Hennesy.

In 2020, under the leadership of Dr. James Marocco, Jakob and Leah planted a church on the Island of Hawaii (The Big Island). The church has experienced a powerful outpouring of the Spirit, growing from a small Bible study to a congregation that ministers to more than 1,000 people weekly. The church expanded from one location in Kona to 10 congregations across the island.

Recently, Jakob returned to Trinity Church as one of the executive teaching pastors. Jakob and Leah reside in Cedar Hill, Texas, with their two teenage children, Moriah and Gabriel.
