Lead Pastor cANDIDATE, JAKE ZASKE
Jake Zaske currently serves as the founding pastor of Trinity Grace Church Queens in New York City. Originally from Rockford, Illinois, Jake sensed the call to full time ministry in high school, and over the last 20 years has worked with churches in Illinois, England, California, and New York with a unique ministry focus in each season. Whether serving in a large, established church, leading a church towards revitalization, or birthing a new church plant, Jake has remained resolute to his pastoral calling of leveraging all to see communities transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jake is currently completing his Doctor in Ministry degree from Capital Seminary and Graduate School, and has an affinity for coaching and mentoring church planters around the world.
Sarah Zaske is passionate about holistic discipleship through the integration of spiritual formation and emotional health. This passion finds its expression through both pastoral ministry and Christian counseling as she serves as a pastor at Trinity Grace Church Queens and as a mental health counselor at Wellsprings Counseling Center in NYC. As an honest and heartfelt communicator, Sarah is unwavering in her desire to encourage others as they follow in the way of Jesus. Sarah holds her M.A. in Mental Health Counseling from Alliance Graduate School of Counseling / Alliance Theological Seminary in NYC.
Jake and Sarah have been married 14 years and both love and like each other even more now than the day they got married. They have been blessed with two children. Caleb is 9 years old and is a budding scientist. Gracie is 4 and when not singing or dancing around the house, is probably playing jokes on her brother. In their spare time, Jake enjoys taking in sports (of almost any kind) and traveling to new destinations, whereas you will find Sarah in a quiet corner with her nose stuck in a book or getting lost outdoors in nature.
