Jacob Thompson is a breath of fresh air. His deeply moving personal testimony reminds us that, while God doesn’t always change our circumstances, He is always present in them. Jacob spoke with such tenderness and authenticity. His spoken word elements added to his story and took us on a journey to realize that God meets us in our pain and brings about His glory and our growth. Jacob’s message really resonated with our students. In fact, following his chapel I had numerous students approach me to say they were touched and challenged by his words. I would recommend Jacob to any community that desires to be strengthened in their faith.

I have known JT for over fifteen years. He is a very gifted speaker, especially when it comes to spoken word. What makes his spoken word so impactful is his ability to be transparent and relatable with his audience. The trials in his own life have given him a unique platform for the truth that he speaks. He can relate, challenge, speak truth and bring hope to both young and old alike!
Wayne Anderson | Varsity Basketball Coach & Team Chaplain - Hope Academy
JT is confident, engaging, and creative. I’ve always thought his lyrics are some of the most thoughtful and relevant. He has a message that the world needs to hear; it’s a message I believe in! He even wrote a special spoken word to go with the theme of my event and knocked it out of the park!
Alex Hunter | Event Director - Pulse
Jacob Thompson exceeded all expectations. He did a phenomenal job being real and authentic with our students. He spoke straight from the heart and was so engaging.
Aaron Moberg | Head Football Coach - Mounds View High School
I have been able to personally observe JT’s work ethic, maturity, and heart for urban youth. He has been properly trained, graduating from Bethel Seminary with a master’s degree in ministry. He is not a quitter. JT has overcome tremendous obstacles in his life and continues to be an inspiration to many. He is a godly example to young people. I have known him for four years now, and it has been an absolute joy to have JT and his family at Cityview Church.
Rev. Walt McFadden | Senior Pastor - CityView Church
We have always looked forward to having JT at our events. He comes prepared, prayed up, rehearsed but comfortable and flexible. His spoken word, music and merch have always enhanced our events, and he is always willing to work with us to make the event the best it can be. He has a powerful story that many can relate with.
Matthew Martinez | Youth Pastor - Oak Hills Church
JT brought honesty, skill, and a presence to our event that drew in the students. I strongly recommend him as a speaker and artist. His positivity despite life's obstacles is inspiring.
Mike Ashly | Area Director - TreeHouse
JT is a consummate professional motivational speaker and a true orator. Through his story and his art, he connects with individuals (even virtually) and inspires an introspective look into an individual’s situation and how to express themselves in a nurturing and caring way. It is challenging to find the right words to describe an experience with JT but, his authenticity is felt by all who hear him speak – he keeps it real.
Rachel Whisnant | One Rare Conference
Jacob Thompson's message and spoken word poetry made for a great night! Our students were captivated and more engaged than ever. JT's words really hit home for those seeking to find their purpose and identity. I plan to invite him back in the future and would strongly recommend him as a speaker and artist.
