    After sensing God’s call, Jack surrendered to ministry in 1995 and served two churches in role of Youth Pastor. In 1998 Jack felt God calling his family to full-time vocational ministry and chose to pursue biblical and theological training at Southern Seminary in Louisville KY, where he graduated in 2001 with a Master of Arts in Christian Education.  Jack served Illinois churches from 1995 to 2017.  In 2017, God moved his ministry to the Illinois state convention. Jack joins Freedom after 6 years with the convention where he felt God was leading him to take what he had learned and apply it to the local church.  He is passionate to see God’s people grow in relationship with Jesus as we reach the community with the Gospel. Jack married his wife Misty in 1993. They have four children, Jase, Brooks, Austyn, and Angie.
