Jacob Kern

Children’s Pastor

I have interned and served in children’s ministries for the past 7 years. The Lord used these experiences as well as my education at Cederville University where I earned a B.A. in Bible and at Dallas Theological Seminary where I earned a Master of Theology to grow my heart for children and their families and to lead me to become a Children’s Pastor.

My beautiful wife Amy and I have been married for a little over a year. I love her heart for children and the many ways she ministers to and cares for others.

We have a two sons, Aeden and Oliver.

Amy and I enjoy walking, hiking and biking together. We are excited for the day when we will have a jogging stroller so that we will be able to take our baby with us on our adventures.

It’s my vision to see children enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ, grow in their relationship with the Lord and others in accordance with God’s Word, and reach out to a lost and dying world with the love and unchanging truth of the Bible. I am convinced this vision is best accomplished through a partnership between the church and home where parents take the leading role of ministering to and leading their children.
