Jake is a worshiper of God; Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. He is inspired by his favorite verse, John 4:23-24. He believes we were created to worship, but worship isn’t something you do, it’s something you are. His spiritual lineage goes back many generations and is filled with worship leaders and pastors. He has been singing since he was a toddler, and learned piano as a boy. But it wasn’t until college, (when he fully surrendered to the Holy Spirit, taught himself to play guitar and joined the on-campus BASIC group,) that his worship leading career began. Jake is a lover of God, a lover of his wonderful wife Beth, and of his 4 children. He is also a nerd. After earning his B.S. in Physics and Math at The University at Albany and his M.S. in Education at Utica College, he became a high school physics teacher. Jake is a huge fan of Syracuse University Basketball, the Yankees, the NY Football Giants, and all kinds of food! He enjoys a good prank, and loves sacrificing his dignity to get a reaction from others.
