Jacob D. Friesen
I deeply love Jesus and the people he brings into my path. I am thrilled to be the Lead Pastor at Morrow Gospel, but the real strength of the Church comes from the great leaders and volunteers that I am able to grow and serve with.
My wife Arlene and I began our journey with the wonderful folks at Morrow during Christmas of 2013. We believe God has amazing things in store for us and invite you to join us on this journey! The Church started almost 50 years ago, and now, this great facility is in the midst of a vibrant, increasingly diverse and growing neighborhood. We value the grace that is required and grows when people from different generations and cultures serve together in the love of Christ. Morrow is a place where we treasure the wisdom of our elders and embrace the passion of our youth.
My wife and I are graduates of Tyndale Seminary and have served as a pastor couple for the majority of our married lives. We have a big heart for missions and immigrants. As recreational activities, we enjoy cycling, kayaking and running. I love coffee and dream of having a café racer one day!
