Pastor Lunch with IMB Rep. Jamison L. Work
Jamison L. Work
Dr. Jamison (Jamie) L. Work served as a pastor for more than 36 years in six churches across three states. While serving as a local pastor, Dr. Work sponsored three successful church plants, started two Christian schools, and initiated a Church Planting and Theological Training Institute.
He also led a church revitalization project in conjunction with his last church plant and has written a 40-Day Church Revitalization Prayer Guide that is broadly used across several state conventions. Dr. Work has also served in various leadership roles within the local association and the state convention, as well as the SBC. He has been heavily involved in local associational life in Texas, Georgia, and Tennessee, from serving as Moderator to working with various strategic planning teams. He has also served on the Executive Board of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, and on the SBC Executive Committee. He brings nearly 40 years of pastoral, missionary, and denominational experience in helping others engage and embrace God’s global mission.
The heartbeat of Work’s ministry has been discipling, equipping, and mobilizing believers to embrace God’s call to disciple the nations, with special emphasis on the least-reached and unreached peoples in the 10/40 Window. He has personally led mission teams or mobilized other believers to carry the Good News to approximately 30 states and more than 25 international locations. Work’s most recent congregation commissioned more than 50 people to go live on the international mission field and saw more than 100 people participate every year in short-term mission projects in the US and around the globe.
