John Jacobs

LifeGroups & Vermilion Campus Pastor

John loves working at Open Door because, as he says, he “gets to watch Jesus blow his mind on virtually a daily basis.” He is passionate about people uncovering their true identities and helping them see that their true story is the one God is writing. Nothing fuels him more than seeing men and women broken by the beauty of the kingdom and the Fathers crazy passionate love for them.

John is father to 4 of the coolest kids on the planet and husband to the most beautiful woman in the world (his words). When he has free time, he loves hanging out in one of our amazing metro parks with his two crazy dogs Bella and Paisley-Park, taking a long slooooow run, plucking on his guitar or backpacking with his son and some of his friends.

But more than anything, John enjoys sitting around a table with his family, his friends, Kings of Leon or Counting Crows playing in the background and getting lost in stories they’ve told over and over. And he can’t wait to meet you. Seriously – he’s that guy.
