Pastor Jake Nelson

Jake and Sydney Nelson grew up, met and got married in northern Wisconsin. From there, they moved to Bemidji where Jake attended Oak Hills Christian College.

During their time in Bemidji, they have been blessed with two sons, Gideon, 2, and Edmund, 7 months.

After Jake graduated from college with his degree in pastoral ministry and Biblical studies, he was called to Akeley to serve as the pastor of White Oak Bible Chapel.
