Hi, my name is Jake Meador.

I’m a fourth-generation Nebraskan and lifelong Lincolnite. I studied at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, finishing a BA in English and History in 2010. I wrote my thesis about Kwame Nkrumah, a mid-20th century Ghanaian politician. In the time since then, I’ve written about place, politics, culture, and the ways that Christian faith speaks to all of the various questions that those topics raise.

My writing has appeared in First ThingsBooks & CultureChristianity TodayFront Porch RepublicNational Review and Fare Forward. My primary online home is at Mere Orthodoxy, where I serve as the editor-in-chief, and the Davenant Institute, which I serve as Vice President. My first book, In Search of the Common Good: Christian Fidelity in a Fractured World, will be released on June 25, 2019. When I am not working, I enjoy following Premier League soccer (my team is Tottenham Hotspur), college football (go big red), attempting various cooking and baking projects at home, and spending time with my wife, Joie, and our three kids. We are members in a local PCA church, which has been my denominational home since 2007.
