Tom and Lori Jacobs

Meet our Speakers!

Tom and Lor have shared 43 years of marriage and ministry. During that time, Tom has served as a university assistant chaplain, staff pastor, church planter, lead pastor, and district superintendent for the Iowa Ministry Network (IMN). He has also had the honor of serving on several college and university boards.

Lori has been by his side during each season of their ministry. She has coordinated events and conferences in churches and the IMN, and invested in the lives of many women. Lori excels at hospitality and cheering others on in their gifts and dreams. They both enjoy having friends and family around their table.


Through all of their ministry, they have believed that the Holy Spirit working through the local church is the hope of the world. They have discovered that healthy ministry flows out of healthy relationships with God and each other, and we seek to encourage those relationships within the church and throughout the community.

They have been blessed with two children. Their daughter Ashley and her husband Nick Knepper are the parents of Elliott (11), Norah (9), and Amos (4) and Junia (3). They pastor Des Moines Anglican Church in West Des Moines, Iowa. Their son Austin and his wife Hillary are the parents of Jack (7) and Conrad (4). Austin works with the Acts 2 Journey (church revitalization) and is a pastor at Solid Rock Church in Springfield, MO.

Lori and Tom enjoy reading, walks and bike rides, good coffee, and spending time with friends and family (especially their grandchildren).
