Jake Watkins grew up in Willmar, Minnesota. Music and singing were always part of his life. His parents lead worship together, and were part of a church that recognized the move of the Holy Spirit. Jake taught himself guitar and played worship songs as a form of practice. The passion and desire for God stirred in him until practice became a time to simply worship. In 2010, Jake came to Redding to attend Bethel School of Worship and Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. Since then, he has been serving in The Worship Rooms and on Bethel's worship team. Jake has a strong passion for the presence of God to be experienced in a fresh way by releasing hope through authenticity and a pure desire for encounter with God's heart.
