I Can | Part Two

I Can | Part Two

This week I want us to look into the “I CAN” in relationships. Over the past few weeks I have had several saddening conversations with those who feel as though they want to walk away from a life with God, and even pastors who want to walk away from ministry do to relational hurts. This has driven me to write this post today about the “I CAN” in relationships this week. There may be some of you reading this, or those who will read this in the future that have been hurt by some form of relationship. That hurt  can cause us to close ourselves off and say there’s no way I can open myself up to the potential of being hurt again, but Christ in us says you can...

I Can | Part One

We would like to thank you so much for taking the time to read this week's blog post. I believe it will be life changing for those who read it. While praying about what I should write today I felt deeply impressed to write these words, inspired by God, specific to you and your personal life. Of course I don’t know everything that is going on in your personal life but I do pray that these words today will impact your spiritual life in a manner that will flow into your personal life. God knows and so deeply CARES about what goes on in your life. So although I may not know everything, GOD DOES and that’s all that matters. After reading this today you may consider forwarding this email to a friend or loved one or sharing with your social media influence, or anyone you feel may need encouragement. This is going to help people get set free, today...

Join In/Team Gavin Missions: Part Two

Join In/Team Gavin Missions: Part Two

Jeannie and I are so thankful for those who have decided to partner with us in the “Join In/ Team Gavin Missions” Campaign of Faith Builders International. We believe that together as we gather in unity, we can make a difference in the lives of so many.

From the time I was a child all the way through my time in college I played team sports, primarily basketball. In sports every team member has a function and a role whether you played regularly in games or not. At the beginning of each year my coach would outline my role and responsibilities that role carried. It was my responsibility to accept that role and serve in that role to the very best of my ability...

Join In/Team Gavin Missions

Jeannie and I are so delighted, honored, and privileged to announce the launch of the missions side of Faith Builders InternationalFaith Builders International is called to Build Faith, Restore Hope, and Extend Love everywhere we go. As we minister in churches and conferences, author books, podcast, and participate in various ministry meetings throughout this next year, we believe this will help build faith and restore hope in the lives of many. When it comes to extending love as a part of our vision we do so in a few different ways, and I want to introduce to you one of those ways today...

Love Is Our Identity

Love Is Our Identity

This is the final week of laying out the foundation of Faith Builders International, the ministry God has so graciously entrusted to Jeannie and I. We appreciate each of you taking this journey with us and we appreciate all the love and support as we look forward to the formal launch early next year. Over the last several weeks we have discussed some of the foundational principles this ministry is established on.  Everything we do as a ministry is done through a place of Faith, Hope, and Love.   

As we journey along life's path it is imperative to understand that beyond the current events of your life, good or bad, the fact still remains that Jesus is still the SAME yesterday, today, and forever. What does that mean, same as what? Does God change his mind about you based on your temperament or attitude? Does He love you differently when you are going through difficult times in life or when hardship manifests in various ways? 

Love Is Our Response

Love Is Our Response

As we have journeyed through the fundamental foundation of Faith Builders International over the last several weeks we have studied the message of Faith, Hope, and Love. This week we continue our discussions on love. “Love Is Our Response”.

Everyday we encounter people who can be unkind and hurtful, or those who treat us wrongly. You may be thinking of someone right now. Our ministry is designed to respond to the world with love, the God kind of love. I want to highlight the later part of verse five in Corinthians, that it states “ It keeps no record of being wronged”. Paul was speaking to the Church, stating that there are going to be people among you that may treat you in a manner that is unkind or hurtful, but to understand that our response is to believe the very best of people even when they may be at their worst...

Love Is Our mission

Love Is Our mission

Over the last 6 weeks we have been laying the foundation of Faith Builders International. As a ministry we are determined to Build Faith, Restore Hope, and Extend Love to both the church and unchurched. It is our desire to demonstrate the Gospel in many ways, one of them being Extending Love. We believe as a ministry that the love God has demonstrated through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection is the greatest demonstration of Love known to humanity. While others may think God is upset with them, we demonstrate a much different message, one of his love, through acts of kindness and communication of good news. It is this love that...

Hope Is Our Future

Hope Is Our Future

As we look at the current events of our time we see some uncertainty.  If you watch the news long enough you’ll see that trouble is all around us. Many people today walk through life with no hope for a better future and they accept that the way their life is now, is the way it will always be. When you journey through life without God I guess that statement would be true, but when you follow Christ, 

Hope Is Our Vehicle

Hope Is Our Vehicle

Over the past three weeks we have been discovering some great truths about Faith as our lifestyle, foundation and freedom. I could keep the series on faith going, but as we are teaching the Big Why of this ministry I want to move on to the topic of hope and discover how hope is “our vehicle”.  

Faith is the fuel in the vehicle of Hope that takes us from one season to another.  In life we all go through seasons.  Some good and some not so good.  Hope is like a vehicle that drives us but faith is... 

Faith Is Our Freedom

Faith Is Our Freedom

Over the last couple weeks we have been looking into the “Big Why” of Faith Builders International.  We have discovered that faith is our lifestyle and our foundation. In this weeks blog I want to encourage you that faith is also our freedom. It is the desire of Faith Builders International to spread freedom through the powerful message of the Gospel of Jesus.

There is freedom found in a life of faith. Although we experienced tragedy in our personal life with our son, Gavin, we still recognize that there is freedom found in...

Faith Is Our Foundation

Faith Is Our Foundation

As we embark in this weeks blog, my desire is to bring further understanding to the “Big Why” of Faith Builders International. In saying that, it is imperative that you know that Faith through Jesus is our foundation. Last week we stated that Faith is a lifestyle, and this week we want to look at Faith as our foundation.  Through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, we can rest in His Good News (the Gospel) and recognize that Faith is not only our lifestyle but our foundation. Faith is the bridge between earth and heaven when we communicate through prayer...

Faith Is Our Lifestyle

Faith Is Our Lifestyle

Three weeks after my eight year old Son Gavin passed away, I was sitting in my chair having a quiet moment alone with God when I sensed that now was time to make a transition back into full time Ministry.  This transition would be from the amazing business we have been blessed with, to follow the call of God on our lives to establish a ministry to serve both the churched and unchurched through the powerful message of Faith, Hope, and Love. Over the past 20 years I have functioned in several different ministry roles from serving as a volunteer to being an Executive Pastor of Operations for a mega church. I have seen the church up close as a Pastor and from a distance as a businessman, since establishing my finance company in early 2011. The “why” of Faith Builders International came from...

Our Journey

Our Journey

This is our story, this is who we are and why we do what we do. It is our hope that through the story of our life God will get the glory and through him your faith will be built, your hope restored and love will be extended to you in a very real way.

Jamey and Jeannie met at RHEMA Bible Training Center in 1995, where they both graduated in 1997.  Prior to attending RHEMA Jamey served as a Volunteer at Church In The Son in Orlando, Florida under the leadership of Pastor Alex Clattenburg for five years.  Upon graduating in May of 1997 Jamey returned to Orlando, Florida...

My Story

My Story

At an early age my parents divorced which left me without a relationship with my father growing up.  As a result of the divorce, my mother was forced to work 3 jobs in order to support us. Prior to elementary school I was shuffled daily between babysitters and my grandmother's house while my mother was working. I grew up in an area of Orlando that was and still is known for violence, crime, drugs, and gangs. It was very common as a young boy to look out my front door and see people buying drugs and engaging in violence.  On one side we had neighbors who dealt and did drugs while on the other side we had a christian family...
