A year long short term missions experience ignited and confirmed a cross cultural missionary calling for Jacob and his wife Karen that then led to them serving with World Team as missionary church planters in Spain from 2000 to 2011. Jacob also served as the Spain Field Director giving leadership and ministry vision to our team there. In 2011 Jacob returned to Canada to serve in the area of mobilization and church based teams. His passion is to help people connect with what God is calling them to in the Great Commission. This is evident as he sees his calling as a discipling ministry that helps people connect with their Great Commission calling. He also challenges local churches to consider sending not just one, but a team.
Jacob’s ministry preparation includes degrees from Steinbach Bible College and the University of Waterloo. He and Karen are the parents of two grown daughters and enjoy traveling and getting together with friends. Jacob is a Montreal Canadiens fan although were not sure why!
