Pastor Jesse’s pastoral ministry began at New Providence Baptist Church in Columbia, Missouri, as interim pastor in March, 1996. Several months into this the church called him as pastor. After several years, Jesse and Sharon determined that he needed further ministerial training and so moved to Mayview, Missouri, in June, 2001 to serve FBC Mayview as Pastor. He began working on an MDiv at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2002, completing that work in May, 2007. In November, 2011, Parker Road Baptist Church issued a call for Jesse to serve as Pastor which began on March 1, 2012.
Pastor Jesse’s secular employment has been quite varied, working in construction, as a hospital Safety specialist, an Environmental Health Specialist (health inspector), and in I.T. His hobbies and likes are varied and include amateur radio, golf, hunting, fishing, and his grandchildren.
