Jake is our Worship Minister. He joined the UCC ministry team in the spring of 2018. He has been leading worship from a young age but discovered a true passion for worship ministry in college. He graduated from Ohio Valley University in May 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Bible and Ministry as well as a minor in Music. Jake is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity from Lipscomb University.
As the Worship Minister, Jake plans and organizes our worship gatherings and serves as our primary worship leader. Since worship encompasses all of life, Jake also creates and provides resources for spiritual formation through UCC’s family group ministry.
Jake and his wife, Anna, met in college and have been married since August 2014. They can find a way to enjoy pretty much anything as long as they do it together. Jake especially enjoys playing and listening to music, passionately following Pittsburgh sports, grilling a nice ribeye steak, and playing Fortnite with his college buddies.
