Between our core values and great people, we rest assured that our personnel, whether representing our own company or yours, will be nothing short of hardworking and extraordinary. We feel that the Lord has given us a purpose, and that purpose is exemplified through our eight standards of living and serving our community. It is our goal to ensure that we, as a company, are living by these eight standards, to help bring you, both employer and employee, the best service available.
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.
Grace: We are humbled by the needs of others, regardless of their success, we are re-minded to be thankful not boastful in our ability to assist you.
Hope: We are positive, confident, and have faith in people. We have hope that we have what it takes to handle anything that may come our way. We strive to ensure that you don’t allow doubts or fears to hold you back from reaching your full potential.
Faith: As a faithful leader we have unwavering trust in things seen and unseen. We are confident, with you, that the right will overcome the wrong, even when facing the most difficult situations.
Respect: We strive to always treat others with dignity. We ask that our employees speak and act courteously, giving others a feeling of being valued. Respect is the highest form of honor, and at JMI we seek to bring that value to every aspect of our business.
Integrity: Paying homage to our company name by living by the highest principles, we work hard to be known for our integrity.
Joy: We are optimistic, full of spirit and have inner peace. We appreciate the gifts that each day brings, because we know that all things can be worked together for good.
Service: We know the value of giving must come from the heart. We’ve learned that giving is an investment worth its weight in gold, and it is our commitment to serve well.
Peace: We take time for daily reflection and gratitude. We strive to resolve conflicts so that the teams win. Peace is giving up the love of power for the power of love.
At JMI Resource our purpose is to serve God in all that we do. We know that by giving back to our community we are building and investing in something that is much larger than ourselves. God has given us a unique opportunity to be able to connect to our community through our outreach and ministry advances. We value partnering with local and national non-profit organizations that are pursing the same mission that God has given us.
We currently are supporting and partnering with:
Amazon Vida Ministry
God has allowed our company to be the resource for 20 trips (and still counting) to the Amazon River basin. Through Amazon Vida, a non-profit, interdenominational mission, we take Christians from every walk of life to participate in short-term missions. Our work enables us to support indigenous Brazilian churches and villages by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the Amazon River. In meeting the physical needs of the villagers, we establish relationships that opens the door to share Christ’s love with them.

Romans Road to Salvation
Our Message of Faith
The Gospel of Grace (revealed by our Lord Jesus Christ to our Apostle Paul)
Many people think they will go to heaven because they have lived a good life. Perhaps, they treat all of their neighbors fairly. Maybe they volunteer for charity work and have never broken the law. Maybe they were even baptized or go to church regularly. But the Bible, God’s Word, says that no one can live up to God’s standard of righteousness.
Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one…”
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God …”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Salvation cannot be earned. Everyone is a sinner and deserves death, but God gives eternal life. So how can we receive God’s gift of eternal life?
Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth …”
To be saved, we must believe the gospel. The word”gospel” means “good news”. But before we can believe the good news, we have to know what it is.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel … that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures…”
This is the gospel which we must believe in order to be saved. Now, how does believing this gospel save us?
Romans 5:8-9 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him”
Romans 3:22-26 “Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation (appeasing sacrifice)through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”
We can be saved from the wrath of God, because Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins and rose from the dead. He paid the price for us, and we are justified in God’s eyes through our faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast.” There will be no boasting in heaven. We cannot be saved by our own righteousness, but only by God’s grace, through faith.
Ephesians 1:13-14 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”
Once we believe the gospel, we are sealed with God’s Holy Spirit. This is God’s deposit, that guarantees he will redeem us, whom our Lord Jesus Christ “purchased with his own blood” (Acts 20:28).
Studying the Bible is an essential part of the growth of every believer. New believers should begin by reading the letters of our Apostle Paul (Romans 11:13), starting with Romans and then continuing through all of Paul’s letters.
