Jimmie Davidson

NAMB Church Planting Catalyst

Jimmie Davidson is a multi-ethnic church planting catalyst for the North American Mission Board, serving Los Angeles, Long Beach Harbor and Orange County Southern Baptist Associations. His responsibilities include catalyzing churches, planters and pastors in starting churches, and acting as a resource for those interested in reaching the millions who make up the Los Angeles mega region.

Jimmie's work includes monthly training on the latest innovations in church planting, and principles and practical coaching for sending churches, sponsoring churches or planters. He also assists church planting couples in connecting with others for encouragement and fellowship.

His experience in planting a church and seeing it grow into thousands, then leading the launch of and managing Saddleback Church’s international campuses in Hong Kong, Berlin, Buenos Aires and Manila, has prepared him to help church planters and pastors.

Beginning his NAMB ministry in 2015, Jimmie is married and has two daughters.
