My name is Jamey Houghton and I have been the lead pastor at the Franktown church since 2014. I started unofficial ministry as a student missionary on the island of Pohnpei in Micronesia. I came back to Southern Adventist University and switched my major heading in the direction of ministry. During my time at Southern I married Erin Johns and after college we headed to Bangkok, Thailand to teach at an Adventist school for one year. Following Thailand, we moved to Bakersfield, California where I served as the youth/associate pastor for the Hillcrest church. While in Bakersfield we were blessed with the birth of our daughter Callie and our son Josh. In 2012 we moved to Denver, Colorado (our daughter Riley was born just after we moved to Denver!) where I led out in a new department at the Rocky Mountain Conference training young people all over the conference to preach and lead out in an evangelistic series. In the three years I led that department we held 55 evangelistic series and had 550 baptisms—and all of the series were preached by young people! For a short time, I led the student evangelism department and served as the pastor at the Franktown church, eventually transitioning full time to the Franktown church. I am passionate about evangelism and mission work and have led out in mission trips all over the world. In addition to an undergraduate degree from Southern Adventist University, I have masters degrees in Ministry and Business Administration from Point Loma Nazarene University and Western Governors University. In my free time I enjoy traveling, off-roading, skiing/snowboarding with my family, disc golf, reading, and camping.
If you visit the Franktown church, please come and say hi! I would love to meet you and personally welcome you to our church.
