Danilo's Hope for Coastal Bend Fellowship:

Jacob Encinia

Worship and Youth Pastor

I’m Jacob Encinia, the worship and youth pastor here at Coastal Bend Fellowship. I am married to Laura, and we have three children. My family and I have been a part of Coastal Bend Fellowship for seven years and truly have been blessed to serve at a gospel-driven church.

My hope for Coastal Bend Fellowship is to continue the focus on a Christ-centered vision within the church, and that same vision will be ministered throughout the community. It is important to remind ourselves daily in whom we serve.
