Jacob Shetron was born and raised right here in Mechanicsburg, PA. After graduating from Cumberland Valley High School he enlisted in the United States Navy as an Aviation Electronics Technician. He served 4 years working on SH-60B helicopters. He deployed on several ships allowing him to see many parts of the world, and when he was not deployed he remained stationed in Hawaii on a joint Naval and Marine Air Station.
Upon his completion of his tour Jacob answered his calling to ministry, and came back home to attend Messiah College. During his studies at Messiah he attended Country & Town Baptist Church, taking it on as his home church, and participated in the youth ministry as a volunteer leader for 3.5 years.
Upon graduating from Messiah College, with a Bachelors of Arts in Christian Ministry with a concentration in Youth Ministry, he accepted the position of Youth Ministry Associate here at Country & Town Baptist Church. He is deeply grateful to be able to continue working in the youth ministry here, and is excited to see where God takes the youth ministry.
