Every great movement begins with a great story. Ours is the same. Since JMI Resource’s founding, our goal has always been to bring honor and Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
As an organization, we opened our doors in 2005 not out of drive, or will, or even passion, though we have all of those things, we opened our doors out of obedience. Our founders Marty and Christina Davenport heard the call from God to start this journey.
“God’s word had promised us that He would save us because of His love for the world and that His son the Lord Jesus had paid the penalty by going to the cross for our sins,” Marty said. “The story does not end there but only begins. Our lives were not formed at that moment, however, they were transformed.”
Marty and Christina knew that their mission would span far beyond offering top-quality services and standards.
“God gave us an opportunity to use our talents and start our journey by the creating of JMI Resource and to use that as a platform to do what our heart desires. That is to honor HIM through the resources of JMI.” Marty said.
Since 2005, we have seen the company grow from Marty and Christina’s kitchen table to a company staff of 23 with over 500 employees working each day throughout the state of Florida.
God has allowed this company to be the resource for 12 mission-based trips, and still counting, to the Amazon River in order to provide medical and dental assistance to the natives on the river and to share the good news of Jesus Christ. God has also allowed JMI to be active in such noble causes as the Oasis Pregnancy Center and Autism Foundations.
Here at JMI our desire is to take pride NOT in ourselves because without Him we can do nothing, but to understand that God provides his promise to us in HIS inerrant word. John 10:10 says, “The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.”
Our hope is in nothing less than Jesus Christ and His righteousness. This is our journey. It has been a remarkable ride.
