Ricky's goal: to reach the Winnebago people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by meeting them where they are and leading them to the cross.
Ricky Jacob is one of our Affiliate Ministry Workers from the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Originally from CLAIM (Council for Lutheran Indian Ministries), he has partnered with us to spread the Gospel to Every Native Nation.
Prior to being called to the Winnebago Reservation in northeastern Nebraska, Ricky and his family served as missionaries in Senegal, Africa and, therefore, understands the cross-cultural ministry field well.
He is proud to have been part of the Winnebago community since 1993, and in that time has worked to nurture and grow a Lutheran church and preschool, which currently serves the children of the community. Ricky is very involved in the Winnebago community and would love to see his church, Jesus Our Savior, start a flourishing Lutheran grade school. However, for the time being, he is running the Bible Adventure Hour, an after-school Bible study, every Wednesday.
