Hi! I am Jake, and I'm here just to enjoy reading through the different articles and forums and learning what I can, especially different views that are within the Reformed community. I've seen the forums before, and thought I'd might as well join! I am 25 years old, and am currently the academic dean of a small Bible college on island. I have been blessed to be able to be at the ministry here for the last 2.5 years, teaching courses such as Systematic Theology, Church History, and NT/OT Survey, along with leading the administration team and discipling young men and women to love Christ and live a life of obedience before the Father. I do prayerfully hope that one day I will be able to continue my education, although for now I feel God's call here in the islands. I am originally from Wisconsin, but spent about three years in international missions after converting to true faith in Christ at the age of 20 before coming to Hawaii. I am hoping that being on the Puritan Board will help me to grow in knowledge and understanding of God and His Word.
