Jacob SharpWorship & Youth Minister
Jacob was a member of Christ Life Community Church for many years before becoming a full-time minister. He and his lovely wife, Haley, reside in Murfreesboro, TN. During this season of disruption, Jacob has striven to offer creative ways for young people to chase after Jesus, and develop community with each other. From Jacob: “This church has been the place where I found Jesus, and where I grew alongside family to know Him for who He is. My desire is to see the body of Christ passionately follow Jesus with every fiber of their being; and to find that He really is that good!”
