We are the Leierer Family – Nathan, Jewell, Jadeyn, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jackson, Jeanette and Janelle. We are excited that the Lord has called us to be church planting missionaries to Portland, Oregon!
Nathan grew up in a Christian home and received Christ as Saviour in 2002. He was baptized at Central Baptist Church in Clovis, California under Pastor Eldon Martens. Jewell received Christ in 1997 and was baptized at Salem Baptist Church, Salem, Oregon. Nathan and Jewell met at West Coast Baptist College. After Jewell graduated from college, with a major in Bible and Missions, in May 2009, she went on staff at Lancaster Baptist Church. Nathan and Jewell began a relationship in February of 2010 and were engaged on December 31, 2010. In May 2011, Nathan graduated from college with a major in Bible and Church Ministries. After Nathan’s graduation, they were married in July and continued to serve on staff at Lancaster Baptist Church through 2011.
In 2012, Nathan and Jewell moved to Salem, Oregon to work on staff at Salem Baptist Church with Stephen Brown, Jewell’s father. During this time Nathan served as the Associate Pastor and worked in many aspects of ministry, including children, teens, music, graphic design, administration, and media. During their time in Salem God has blessed them with six children: Jadeyn (10), Jedidiah (9), Jeremiah (7), Jackson (5), Jeanette (1), and Janelle (4 months). After serving there for 10 years, the Lord directed them to be church planting missionaries in Portland, Oregon.
In December of 2021, their family packed up into their Excursion and travel trailer to start full-time deputation to raise their support. They will be settling in Portland in the Fall of 2023 and in the Spring of 2024 they will be launching Hope Baptist Church in SW Portland.
