We are the Jacob Family. My name is Richard Jacob and the Lord saved me on June 19, 1989. Soon after this, the Lord called me into the ministry. I joined the Calvary Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary and completed my B.Th., B.D., M.Div. degrees in the next 6 years.
In the very first year of Bible College, I started the Whitefield Baptist Church which began with Sunday school under some trees to a full fledged church. My wife Leah was saved at the age of 10. God used a Canadian missionary lady to help us. We moved to the US under God's leading in 2005. I worked at the First Baptist Church of Long Beach, Ca for 8 years. Started as a janitor and worked as an Asst. Pastor and Sunday School Director. God brought us to Knoxville, TN. I worked on the pastoral staff at Temple Baptist Church and worked as a professor at The Crown College of the Bible. We have 3 children. Gideon just graduated from Crown College as a pastoral major. Emerald is a senior at Crown College completing a business degree. Marcus our youngest is a senior at Temple Baptist Academy. God has called us to church plant in America and Start a Bible College. We are excited to see souls saved and lives changed by the grace of God and for the glory of God.
