Rooted Progress

Tradition + Action.  |  Worship + Justice.  |  Trinity + Congregation.


My name is Jacob, and I have the joy of serving as Acting Interim Pastor of St. John United Church of Christ in Robinson, Texas. I am a third year divinity student at Baylor's Truett Seminary, and will start an MBA at Hankamer School of Business this August.

I don't know everything, but I do know something holy happens when we set a table big enough for friend and stranger. Join me!

What do you confess?

As seminary is ending, there is a class asking me to "confess" my faith in the context of communities with bountiful references to Scripture and ancient and modern theology. As I finish these papers I will post them here as blog posts as catalysts for conversations. If this is too slow or not systematic enough for you, rest assured, I wrote a 16 page faith statement last semester.

What can we build together?

For about 8 years now, I've been working with small businesses, individual clients, churches, and ministries to build simple, effective websites and implement basic media strategies. I think you'll find my prices reasonable, and my heart for the Church evident in this process. Below are three examples of recent websites I have built. If you like what you see, contact me and let's get started on your next project.
