Lead Pastor

Jacob Taylor

Our Lead Pastor, Jacob Taylor, grew up in a pastor's family and felt God call him to be a pastor when he was just eight years old. He has followed that call ever since. Pastor Jacob attended Olivet Nazarene University and received both his bachelor's and master's degrees in pastoral ministry from ONU.

Pastor Jacob met his wife, Bethanie, at Olivet. "She has been the brightest part of my life, as I couldn't ask for a more encouraging and perfect partner in ministry," he says.

Apart from pastoring at West Side, Pastor Jacob loves to hang out with his family (his father is the pastor of the Nazarene church in Clinton, Ill., just a short distance away), play any kind of game and spend time with Bethanie and their two dogs.

West Side's congregation is excited to serve alongside the Taylors in ministering to our community!
