Jake and Melissa Hunt are church planting missionaries in Prague, Czech Republic. Jake is Associate Pastor at Faith Community Church, an international church made up of people from about a dozen nationalities, including many Czechs. Faith’s vision is to be a vibrant and reproducing evangelical church, hopefully planting more Czech and international churches in Prague in the years to come. Jake works especially in the areas of discipleship, leadership training and music. Melissa orchestrates their domestic bliss, and also mentors young women in the church.
Jake and Melissa met at the University of Georgia, where they worked in campus ministry after graduation. They moved to Charlotte, NC for Jake to attend Reformed Theological Seminary. While at RTS the Hunts also attended Uptown Church, where Jake worked as an intern and they grew to appreciate the importance of the local church as the main way God grows his kingdom. Near the end of seminary the Hunts visited Serge’s church-planting team in Prague. They got excited about both Prague and church planting, and felt a call from God to join the team. They moved to Prague in early 2010.
The Hunts have 2 sons, Sam (2007) and Foard (2009), and a daughter, Eliza (2012). You can keep up with them athuntsinprague.com.
