Jacob and Chelsea were born and raised in Washington State. They met in December 2014 on a church mission trip to Gold River, BC, and have been married since April 2016. They are currently serving in their local church’s middle school ministry and absolutely love it.
Jacob became involved with NAIM the summer after he graduated high school in 2008 in SMI (Summer Ministry Initiative) where he spent the summer in Gold River and has continued to be involved. Chelsea has been serving in children’s, middle school, and high school ministry since 2010. Although she loves the nursery, her favorite is middle school ministry. She has had two internships through her home church specializing in youth ministry.
Both are pursuing their four-year degrees through Moody Bible Institute’s Distance Learning Program and hope to be completed within the next couple of years. They are currently in the beginning stages of support-raising and praying for direction with when to move to Gold River for full-time ministry.
