Scott Jacobs | Evangelist, Lead Singer, and Songwriter

Scott Jacobs was born and raised in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania and started touring in Christian music in 1992. Since that time he has had the privilege of sharing the gospel in 45 states as well as in Canada, The Bahamas, Eastern Europe, and West Africa. He has written over 90 songs, several of which were recorded by artists like The Lesters, Down East, Mended Wings, and Only by Grace. Over the course of his career he has recorded 20 CDs and produced or co-produced 12 of those projects. Scott has literally been around Christian music his entire life. He spent many weekends as a child traveling with his father, Dick, one of the original members of The Jacobs Brothers Quartet from Dillsburg, PA.  Scott and his wife, Tara, have been married 13 years and are members at North Hills Community Church in Taylors, South Carolina where he serves as an Elder. When he is not on the road or in the recording studio, he enjoys coaching little league and keeping up with the Yankees, Celtics, Redskins, and Gamecocks.

He grew up playing the drums and toured with several bands before spending the last few years as an integral member of the worship team at his home church. He began playing periodically with C11 in September of 2015 and joined the ministry full-time in July of 2016. He and his wife, Amberley, have been married for five years and are members at College Park Church in Greenville, SC. In his free time, Josh enjoys watching MMA and following the OKC Thunder, Carolina Panthers, and Clemson Tigers.

Tara Jacobs | Lead and Background Vocals

Tara Jacobs was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Growing up with a father who was a Gospel recording artist fostered a love of singing in her from a very young age. While music was a passion of hers, her first love was working with children. Tara graduated from Messiah College and worked in the field of Education for most of her career. She began traveling on a part-time basis with C11 in 2012. In addition to being a full-time homeschool mom, she is the director of a local Classical Conversations Community. In her rare free time you can find her curled up with a good book and a cup of coffee. 

Dr. Douglas Blanc | Evangelist

Doug Blanc is from Johnstown, NY and began partnering with Commandment 11 in 2012. His passion is to teach and to train. He is a gifted Bible teacher and author who periodically assists with preaching and counseling during C11’s multi-day revivials and evangelistic meetings. He and Sally, his wife of 35 years, oversee “Laborers Together,” a ministry that invests in training pastors all over the world. In 2015 they planted a church called “Foothills Christian Life Center” in Johnstown, NY. Doug is also a professor and the Intercultural Ministries Chair at Davis College in Johnson City, NY.

Manning is an avid fisherman and when he’s not playing the bass, you can find him at Cabella’s or on the river reeling in a big one!
