2016 Guide: Jake Shumate

Meet our last guide for the season, Jake Shumate! He is a sophomore advertising major at Harding University from Coppell, Texas.

What are your 3 favorite past times?

I like to play soccer, read, and hangout with friend.

What is your favorite verse or passage of scripture and why?

My favorite verse is “For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:17 This verse is one of my favorites because it reminds me that even as I try everyday to not sin it’s going to happen. As long as I have faith in the Lord, he will save me. I’m a sinner who shouldn’t be saved, but because he loves me he will rescue me if I keep the faith.

Tell us about your relationship with God?

I have been a Christ follower all my life and my family has showed me Christ’s love throughout my life. I always try to grow and challenge myself to find ways to glorify God.

Why Wilderness Trek?

I love the outdoors and fellowship with other Christians. I wanted to find a job where I could serve others and grow spiritually.

Anything else we should know?

I’m studying abroad in Australia and New Zealand in the fall,  and I’m really excited for the opportunity to travel!
