The Jester family has heard — and responded to – the call of God for generations. Jacob’s father, grandfather and great-grandfather all have served in the ministry. God’s calling led his family from Arkansas to war-torn Sierra Leone, Africa, when Jacob was young. It was in Africa that Jacob saw faith put into action and first felt the call of God on his own life.
Jacob returned to the United States in 1999 to attend Central Bible College in Springfield, Mo. Even as a student, he began to use his gift as a popular speaker in revivals, youth camps, outreaches and crusades. He started Jacob Jester Ministries during his junior year. It was also during that time that he met his future wife and ministry partner, Kristin. Jacob graduated from CBC in April 2004 and married Kristin the following month.
Today, Jacob is a highly sought-after evangelist across the nation, fulfilling his vision of “calling the generations to reach the harvest.”
