My name’s Jacob and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary from Tracy, CA.

What brought me to Christ in the City

I was a full time missionary for LifeTeen this past year at Covecrest. Coming to the end of the year during prayer I truly felt the Lord calling me to continue to serve in missions, He was very adament to tell me that He’s not finished with me yet. My house leaders told me about CIC and that their friends said they had wonderful life changing experiences serving in this mission and said they could see me serving here. I prayed and filled out the application and watched videos hearing about the stories and experiences meeting new friends and continuing to serve the Lord. I just felt in my heart that the Lord was calling me out of my comfort zone of youth ministry and pushing me to expand my bubble because that’s what missionaries do, they go where they are called to serve!

What I’m looking forward to

I’m very excited to dive into community and expand my relationships with young adult catholic men and women and to serve and make friends on the streets of Denver! I’m excited to prepare meals and listen and talk to the people we come in contact with! I’m very excited to continue in formation and attend classes at the Augustine Institute and pursue my education in the Catholic faith!

A bit about me

I played soccer all my life, then coached for 8 years while being a ref and running the club I was coaching at. I was also a youth minister and a preschool teacher for my home parish and just completed a year of full time missions for LifeTeen at Camp Covecrest in Tiger, Gerogia this past year! I love socializing and having meaning/intentional friendships and I’m very excited to explore the state of Colorado!
