Jake Nelson


Jake leads the Family Life Team and the LCYouth – Middle School Ministry.

Jake has been a part of the team at Lake City since fall of 2013, but he’s been around the church since the very beginning! He was part of the original youth group at Lake City and has been plugged in to various volunteer leader roles since 2003.

Jake was born in Arlington, WA, and raised all over the Pacific Northwest spending time in Oregon, Washington, and the last 20 years in Idaho. He is married to his amazing wife and partner in all things Courtney, and has an adorable daughter, Emery!

When asked what his favorite part about his job was, he responded, “The students. I live for the moments when a student has a moment where faith comes alive, and they realize that the Bible is more than just an interesting book. That Jesus is who he said he was, and did what he said he would do. I hope I can just help provide a safe place for these students to explore the claims of Christ!”
