About Jordan Lewis Missions (JLM)
What is JLM?
The Mission & Vision
Jordan Lewis Missions (JLM) was established to honor the life and legacy of Jordan A. Lewis, a graduate of Oral Roberts University, who fought a valiant battle against cancer and joined his Creator at the age of 23. Jordan’s unflinching, unyielding faith in Christ was apparent to all whom he came in contact with. He served the Lord pure heartedly, modeling Christ in all that he did, and his passion was to reach those who had never heard the gospel.
As a college student, Jordan was part of the “Man Team,” a small team of young men who lived among a previously unreached tribe in Tanzania. Jordan was the first to volunteer to share the Gospel with the tribe. He shared with a tribe member named Emmanuel, the first person to ever do so, and also gave him the meaning of his name. Emmanuel received Christ that day, along with several others, and a church was formed. A birthing clinic, built by the Man Team that same year, now doubles as a church on the weekends.
JLM continues this mission and supports teams focused on reaching those who have yet to hear about Jesus. Projects span the globe and include China, Tanzania, Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, Pakistan, Bangladesh, North Korea, and Muslims in NYC.
We do this through:
Relational Connection – We know, love and trust those we serve, and receive consistent feedback and testimonies with photos and video from our friends.
- Apostolic Leadership – We serve best as we help visionary local leaders who have been gifted by God to effectively share the gospel and launch churches.
- Proven Strategies – Every UUPG requires strategies that are effective and relevant to a culture. For example, Pakistan is one of the most arid nations in the world; through giving UUPGs a clean water source, the hearts of thousands have been opened to the gospel.
JLM is facilitated by King’s Park International Church in Durham, NC, Jordan’s home church for most of his life until moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Donations are tax deductible.
