Jacob Bounds

Student Pastor
Lewis Center

Jacob or Jake, whichever you prefer, joined our staff team in November of 2022, he and his wife Averie have been married since 2020 and currently have one giant dog named Diego whom they love like an only child. Jake started in student ministry in August of 2017 and for the last five years has been pursuing his passion of helping students make their faith their own through a deeper understanding of Gods word and a challenge to live a Christ centered life. Here at Lifepoint Jake helps to oversee all student ministry experiences from 6th - 12th grade.

Jake is originally from Michigan but moved away at 15 and spent the next 8 years of his life in Arizona before following the call to Ohio. The Bounds don't know anything about sports but in their free time love adventure, projects, and anything food related!
