Jacob and Alicia Ley - Lead Pastor

Family Edit

Jacob is the lead pastor of The Chapel in Kenmore. Jacob and his amazing wife, Alicia, reside in the Kenmore community with their 3 children (Taylor, Isaiah, and Xavier) and their grandson (Troy).
Jacob is dedicated to suffering alongside fellow Cleveland 

sports fans and loves playing basketball in any pick-up game he can be a part of. His best nights are spent at home with his family or out on a date with his wife. He is a self-proclaimed Bible nerd, passionate preacher of the word, and looks forward to continuing to spread the love and gospel of Jesus Christ to his neighbors.
Although Jacob's trifecta of being a military brat, pastor's and missionary kid has provided him the opportunity of traveling and living all over the world; there is no place he'd rather be than the city of Akron.

Alicia is the director of safe housing for Rahab Ministries, where she gets the priviledge of loving and speaking hope into the lives of women who are lost, abused and forgotten. She loves to go on biking adventures, to make the perfect cup of frothy coffee for anyone who stops by, and to share good food and deep conversation around the table. Alicia is passionate about the joys of disciple-making and urban renewal within Akron. 

Jacob and Alicia are humbled by the privilege and opportunity they have to lead a church in the community they have lived in and cared for over the last 8 years.
