Jake Schroeder is the Associate Director of Youth. He is passionate about seeing young men and women raised up into the men and women of God they are called to be! For the past four years he has been in full time ministry since graduating from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelors Degree in Interpersonal/Organizational Communication. Ten days after graduation he left home in Florida and drove to Colorado where he spent the summer as a guy's counselor at Sonlight Christian Camp. From August 2012 to May 2013 he traveled with the Silver Ring Thing all around the country sharing the message of purity, abstinence, and the Gospel with students. He then repeated the same trend for the next year: camp in the summer, tour the rest of the year. In July of 2014 he hopped on a plane with 45 strangers for an 11 month mission trip to 11 different countries known as the World Race. Upon returning, the Lord put it on his heart to bring real, challenging Christian community to the young adults of his hometown in Florida, so he started Project386. In May 2016, he moved to Pagosa Springs, CO to work at Sonlight again and during the summer met Kim Talley who told him about a job opportunity at First Pres working with high schoolers and middle schoolers. After a few months of prayer and talking, he came to visit and interview. A week later, Jake moved to Amarillo to be the new Associate Director of Youth.
