Following his college graduation, he married Elizabeth Morrison and began a youth pastorate position in 2011 at Lighthouse Baptist Church, Tomball. In 2014, Pastor Jacob moved his family to North Houston where he was born and raised. Helmers Street Baptist Church was founded in 1949 in the heart of Houston Texas.
