Dave Jacobson | Lead Pastor

Dave is married to Brie and originally from Monroe, Wisconsin. He is the father to four young daughters and a new son. Before his senior year of high school, Dave felt called to full-time ministry and went to Moody Bible Institute to study the Bible and ministry. While attending Moody, Dave met his wife Brie and they were married in 2005.

After graduating, Dave moved to North Carolina to accept a role as a pastor at a new church named Salem Chapel. He continued to pastor there for the next 11 years in a variety of roles. During that time, Dave grew in his love for the bold proclamation and practical application of God’s Word. Feeling the call to plant a new church, he partnered with the Harvest Bible Fellowship for training which prepared him and his family to move to Madison and launch Harvest Bible Chapel in September of 2017.

Dave loves anything outdoors, woodworking, reading, and cheering on the Packers. He has a love for the local church and to see people grow in their passion to know Jesus Christ.

Scott Holthaus | Worship Pastor

Scott and his wife Becky both grew up in the Chicago area and met in the junior high band room. They were married years later in 2006 and have three kids (Cohen, Macie, and Evvie).

While in high school Scott began leading worship and felt the Lord call him to pursue full time ministry. He followed after that calling and has lead worship in a variety of church environments over the past 15 years from church plants to large churches. His passion is to see the name of Jesus lifted high through song and for people to encounter the living God through gathered worship.

Scott enjoys the outdoors, family dance parties, cheering on the Bears (we know, we’re working on him), and the occasional walk on the slackline.
