With a heart that beats for the next generation, Jake Ochoa has devoted his life’s work to serving kids and teenagers. Jake’s passion is understanding generations, child development and phases and how that informs creating an environment where Christ may be known. Jake’s family roots are deep in the south side of Chicago where his identity and heart formed for ministry (and the white sox). Jake received his degree in Biblical Studies from Moody Bible Institue and holds 10+ years of experience in children and student ministry in multicultural church settings. Jake and his wife, Ashlyn, love partnering together in ministry and in parenting their toddler, Mateo. Outside of the church, you will find Jake coaching tennis, playing slow pitch softball, running fantasy teams and enjoying Oscar films.
