Minister Jesse Owens

Youth Minister

Minister Owens joined Lake of the Woods Church as a worship leader in 2013 and became a youth leader in 2015, where he found his calling to serve teenagers in this community.  After four years as a high school math teacher, he accepted a full-time position with Lake of the Woods Church in 2022. Minister Owens’ vision for this generation is to equip and encourage teenagers to know Christ and make Him known. To this end, he has developed the LOWC Youth program in the areas of discipleship and training for the purpose of sending surrendered teenagers to reach their peers.

Minister Owens has earned four college degrees: two from Germanna Community College, a B.S. from George Mason in Finance, and a Master of Divinity from Liberty University. His joy for youth ministry is shared with his wife Kassia Owens and four children (Zebedee, Miridia, Ke’koa, and Azariah). In addition to his vocational ministry, Minister Owens currently serves as the head coach for Victory volleyball (a Christian-homeschool travel team) and Victory basketball.
