After graduating from high school in 1995, Jaime moved with his family to the Amazon Rainforest to help the Waodani tribe learn to do for themselves what outsiders had been doing so that the Waodani could reach their own people with the Gospel.  After returning from the jungles, Jaime attended the University of Florida, where he graduated with a degree in Marketing.  After his second year of college, Jaime married Jessica Shea, a girl he met just before leaving for the jungles.  Jaime and Jessica have been married for over 19 years and have six beautiful daughters, including one set of twins who became their grand finale. In 2010, Jaime joined the Indigenous People’s Technology and Education Center (I-TEC), which was founded by his dad, Steve.  Since his Dad's injury in 2012, Jaime has become the primary spokesperson for I-TEC, helping people in North America and around the world catch the vision for training Indigenous Christ followers with tools to open doors for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

      The Spontaneous Multiplication of Churches

      Look beyond institutional features of churches to understand churches as dynamic movements of Christ Himself being followed.

Churches as counter-communities, acting as salt and light, bringing change to their cultures. How movements multiply by connecting with entire families and larger social structures.
