Jake was born and raised in East Texas and has been volunteering in youth and college ministry since 2001. He has degrees from the United States Air Force Academy and Air University in Leadership and International Studies. He loves being trained and teaching others in Christian apologetics, and he is dedicated to helping parents equip their children to live God-honoring lives, “in the world, but not of the world.” He has been married to Holly for over 20 years and has four beautiful teenage daughters. In his spare time he loves to listen to debates, play basketball, and read old classics. One of his favorite Scripture passages is 1 Corinthians 9:26-27, and he is “fighting” to improve his basketball game, but he’s getting old.
He is totally left-handed but bats right-handed in baseball. (And he has never worked for State Farm.)
