About Jessi Potter

 "I was born in Portland, OR. in March, 1990. My parents, Greg and Julie Potter, joined New Tribes Missions when I was young. When I was almost 4, I sat down with my mom on the couch and answered my questions, leading me to Christ. Through the Holy Spirit's guidance and my parents example, I began to have a passion for reaching others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
 "The Lord guided my parents to stay in the USA. That's where I heard about CEF® and at 14 I went to Christian Youth In Action®, a training school that taught me how to share the Gospel with kids. I've always had a passion for kids. I'm the oldest of 5 and was home-schooled. After graduating, I was a care provider (nanny) for a family with boys and a girl for a year and a half. I was strongly encouraged to go to Children's Ministry Institute® (CMI), so I left care providing for the State and became a missionary for God, definitely a promotion. Through this, and other circumstances, the Lord has led me to join the CEF staff here in Oregon.
