Jake True, Lead Pastor
A native Mainer, Pastor Jake True has a passion for gospel-centered, Spirit-empowered local churches as God's plan for the world. In 2014, while in seminary, God began calling Jake to return to Maine to labor in one of the least-churched regions of America. Prior to becoming Lead Pastor at DownEast Christian Church, Jake served as a missions intern in Western Alaska and as an associate pastor in Springfield, Missouri and Central Maine. Pastor Jake met his wife Charity while finishing seminary. They were married in August 2017. Pastor Jake holds degrees from Zion Bible College and Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, and is currently pursuing a degree in education from Liberty University. In addition to his church responsibilities, Jake also serves as an Educational Technician at Daniel W. Merritt School in Addison, Maine.
