Jake grew up on a farm in northeast Colorado and later attended college at Indiana Wesleyan University, where he graduated in 2006 with a B.S. in Accounting and Business Management and in 2008 was licensed as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
Professionally, Jake has worked with different ministries since graduating in 2006.
