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 where he served as one of the Pastoral Staff members at Church In The Son for an additional five years, serving in multiple roles within the Church. In addition to serving in Pastoral Ministry, Jamey is an Entrepreneur. He has created his own business model within the financial industry of niche mortgage loans for clients from all over the world. Jamey launched his business in 2011 and it has now grown to be one of the most well recognized companies throughout Orlando in its given industry. Jamey and Jeanie have been married for 17 years and are the very proud parents of three children, Preston, Gavin and Macey.
In November of 2014, as the Thanksgiving holiday approached Jamey and Jeannie’s 8 year old son Gavin was diagnosed with a stage 4 brain tumor which was later named as a Glioblastoma Multiforme tumor. While Jamey and Jeannie were devastated at this diagnosis they remained strong in their faith, believing for a miracle for Gavin. Less than 2 weeks from his diagnoses, Gavin had a seizure that hospitalized him in the ICU into the month of December. During that time they also learned that Gavin had a stroke shortly after the seizure. Through the month of December Gavin was fighting for his life, he was on a ventilator, received a brain shunt, and was prescribed all kinds of medications. Right before Christmas Gavin was allowed to come home, which was a miracle in itself, as he made it through the initial storm that almost took his life in early December. Although he could not walk or talk like he used to and although he was confined to a wheelchair or bed he remained upbeat and humorous as he’d always been. On April 1, 2015 Gavin passed away from this earthly life and went to meet Jesus face to face, where he received his eternal healing.
Why do we share this with you? Because, everyone has a story. Sometimes things happen in life that are good and sometimes things happen that are not. This does not change the fact that God is still God and He is in control even when life is out of control. Jamey and Jeannie’s faith has been continually built through their journey in life. Through the highs and even the lows of the diagnosis of their son. It is from this place of faith, that they desire to minister to others. Jamey and Jeannie created Faith Builders International as a way to serve the local Church in a supportive role, throughout the world. It is their desire to see Faith Built, Hope Restored, and Love Extended to the lives of those who know God and for those who do not yet have a relationship with Him. Jamey and Jeannie are a living testimony of faith, that you can still stand even while experiencing a storm in life. Their story is simply one of Hope, that there is a purpose through the pains of life and with God ALL things become possible again when our faith is built, our hope becomes restored, and we experience the Power of Gods love. It is this dependence on God that allows our faith to be strengthened in the hard times, so that when things become better we have a deeper revelation of who God really is. You will move from an experience with God to an encounter with God. It is in this encounter that God writes our Story so we can tell others about Him.
