Jacob is a sinner saved by an almighty Savior whose life is described perfectly by the hymn “The King of Love my Shepherd Is.” Though “perverse and foolish, oft he strayed” Christ rescued Jacob and “home rejoicing brought him.” As a child of the King, Jacob still strays but can live in the joy of forgiveness and the assurance that Jesus will complete the work of sanctification which He has begun.
Jacob is a senior at Blue Mountain College majoring in English and Biblical Studies with a minor in Greek. He enjoys being alive and being with people. He can talk for hours about good coffee or professional basketball, but can’t jump to save his life. He is the fourth in a family of ten.
