Jake Rainwater

Jake Rainwater

Roxborough Location Pastor

 Jake moved to Philadelphia, from Lancaster, in 2006, to pursue a career in civil and environmental engineering. Around that time, God began to stir in his heart a desire to serve in the local church. He began attending and serving at Epic when it started in 2008, and joined the staff shortly after. He’s passionate about people discovering and living out God’s purpose for their lives.

Jake’s favorite thing to do is spend time with his wife, Alison, and his kids, Anya, Micah, and Elaina. Fun fact about Jake: he walked down the aisle with his wife the day after they met.  You’ll just have to ask him about that story.

Jake has earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Geneva College and Master’s from Princeton University in Civil and Environmental Engineering.
