About Jakob

Jakob has a burning passion to see the lost come to Jesus and to see those bruised and bound by the enemy healed and set free! After being arrested on drug charges, and God miraculously raising him up from a drug overdose he's been on a mission to see God touch the lives of those who desperately need Jesus.

Jakob is a graduate of Christ for the Nations. He spent several years traveling and ministering alongside his mentor, the late revivalist and evangelist, Steve Hill. For seven years he served as Senior Pastor of a growing and fruitful church in Central Illinois. Today Jakob leads outreaches out of Christ for the Nations in addition to his travels to churches locally and internationally. He leads the outreaches as the staff Evangelist of Trinity Church in Cedar Hill under the leadership of Pastor Jim Hennesy. Jakob and his wife Leah live in Dallas Texas with their two beautiful children Moriah and Gabriel.



Evangelism and Discipleship

What is an evangelist? It's much more than a passionate preacher that holds revival services. It's even more than someone who effectively wins the lost to The Lord. According to Ephesians 4:11-12 an effective evangelist is someone who equips others to do the work of evangelism. Jakob Barrientos Minsitries desires to accomplish this by:


  • Training and Equipping Classes
  • Evangelistic Weekends
  • Impartation Services
  • Staff and Leadership Training
  • Coordinating an Outreach Tailored to your Church
  • Ongoing discipleship beyond a service or weekend



Jesus came not only to save, but also to set free! Jakob has been ministering in deliverance ministry for over a decade and has seen tremendous freedom released in countless individuals. Having personally experienced God breaking the hold of addiction, anger, and much more, Jakob simply wants to share that liberty with others. JBM has several outlets in which we can minister:


  • Deliverance Services (small group or service settings)
  • Training for prayer teams and leaders
  • Ministry for demonic oppression/possession
  • Emotional/Soul Healing
  • Training for believers to walk in authority and victory
  • Training on spiritual warfare and prayer





At the core of everything Jakob Barrientos Minsitries is active in is a strong desire to see revival in these last days. God promised He would pour out His spirit on all flesh in the last days. We also know that He is returning for a bride without spot wrinkle or blemish. Our desire is to be a part of the activity of the Holy Spirit in this last day outpouring as Jesus is preparing to return.
