Pastor Jacob and Hannah

Thirteen years ago God began to speak to my heart about someday becoming a senior pastor that would impact a large city. That city was Denver. After graduating from Oral Roberts University, I took a position with my wife as youth pastor at Cornerstone Church in Highland, Michigan. For 10 years I laid down the desire to senior pastor and fully immersed myself into creating a movement of young people that were passionate for God and ready to change their world.

At its peak, Ignited Student Ministries reached 600 young people on a weekly basis. We held youth conferences and training events that ministered to thousands of people. It was during this time that God spoke to my wife Hannah to begin a young women’s conference called Awaken. This conference has traveled around the nation creating moments for young women to have a divine encounter with God and fulfill their destiny in Him. Towards the end of my 10 years at Cornerstone, God began to stir in my heart to senior pastor again. I remembered the promise of God. My wife and I prayed and fasted and brought our desire to our senior pastor. After much seeking, God, our pastor and Cornerstone Church sent us out with their full support to pastor a church in Denver, Colorado.

God didn’t allow us to just come and plant by ourselves; He has strategically placed a team by our side to help us in the work of God. Now, I truly believe, God has asked us to build a powerful movement for Him in Denver. Our desire is simple: to see people thrive with new life in Christ. Consider joining us in our passion to change a city.
