Jake Garner, Deacon

Jake Garner hails from Murfreesboro, TN, but gladly calls Jackson home. He is forever indebted to the ministry of RUF for introducing him not only to the Lord but also to his wife, Rachael. The two moved to Jackson in 2014 for Rachael to attend RTS, and they fell in love with the city and with Redeemer so much that they decided to buy a house a few streets over and stay as long as God will let them. They welcomed their son, Wendell, in September of 2017.

Jake has a background in mechanical engineering and works at Nissan. He enjoys cycling, tinkering and fixing stuff, fermenting everything from grain to kombucha to sourdough, and pursuing the art of neighboring in his beloved Broadmeadow. Together, he and Rachael seek to grow in their love for Jesus, his church and this city and are thankful for the opportunity to serve at Redeemer.
