Under Jacob’s leadership, Calvary-St. George’s congregation has multiplied greatly and been featured by the diocese as one of the most thriving and growing parishes of New York City.
Jacob serves on the Board of Directors of the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agency, is a trustee of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City, and founding board member of Mockingbird Ministries.
