The son of missionaries, Dr. Jobe grew up in a small rural village in Spain. At age 17, he left his village of 200 people to attend Moody Bible Institute
in Chicago. He started a little church in Chicago with 18 people in a drug-infested neighborhood. Fast-forward to 2023 and he is the president of Moody Bible Institute and pastor of that little church, New life Community Church
, which now has a weekly attendance of 7,000, meeting at 27 locations in the Chicagoland area and in 8 cities internationally. Additionally, Dr. Jobe is the founder of New Life Centers
, an organization focused on helping youth in poverty. He is also the daily host of the nationwide radio program, Straight Talk
, and the author of Unstuck: Out of Your Cave and Into Your Call.
