Jess Archer (M.Div., specialization in Urban Missions ’10) has a ministry that goes far beyond the church walls.
As Children/Youth Mission Education Strategist for the Louisiana Baptist Convention, Jess works with churches and associations as a consultant to implement, coordinate and strengthen missions education for children ages preschool through youth. The lives she touches may be tomorrow’s missionaries.
Under the leadership and supervision of the LBC Women’s Missions and Ministry team, Jess serves Louisiana Baptists through her speaking, teaching, training, leading and planning of events.
Finding one’s place in ministry comes down to following in obedience, according to Jess.
“Scripture tells us that all believers are given spiritual gifts to glorify God and use it in the church body,” Jess said. “When we are centered in God’s will and obedient to Him, it will be easy to respond to His desire for our lives. It is the fruit of our obedience and us longing to know Him more intimately that glorifies Him.”
