ABOUT OUR HEAD PASTORS JEREMY AND JEWELS SMITH
We are the proud pastors at Dwelling Place Lithia. Our goal is to create a place where people of all ages can come and feel welcomed, experience God in a real way, and learn in depth about the Father we love. We got married in March of 2004 and have been blessed with 7 wonderful children. We believe the call for the church today is to be set apart for His purposes. To know God, we must be sold out to the identity that He gives us. People are to be lovingly brought into God’s plan of partnership with them in their lives. Jewels and I are passionate about our Father and passionate about bringing His church into the fullness that He intended.
ABOUT OUR ASSOCIATE PASTORS JAMIE AND MANDI FRANKLIN
We are the Associate Pastors of Dwelling Place Lithia. We have been doing life together since our marriage in February of 2000. Since then, we have had 2 children that share our passion for following God. We believe that we have been set apart to help lead this church body into true discipleship, not forsaking the elementary principles of the Gospel, but also not staying there. We will not forget all the generations that have plowed fields and laid the foundations we stand on, but continue pushing on for the upward cause of Christ so that the Church would know who she is and whose she is.
