The Anchor Project Team
The Spradley Family
Jesse and Liz Spradley have been married since 2005, and all of their married life has been spent working and serving in the local church in Houston. They have been traveling to Latin America leading teams, serving on teams, and traveling independently for the last 15 years.
Jesse grew up the son of a pastor, the oldest of 4 boys, and moved all over the south before finally landing in Houston his 9th grade year. Liz grew up in Houston with parents completely devoted to loving and serving God and instilling this heart for God in their 3 daughters.
Jesse and Liz have a 6 year old son, Hudson, who loves living life and genuinely enjoys making people smile and a daughter, Luci, born in 2016. Liz has a passion to model being a mom and a wife while serving the body of Christ with the gifts with which God has given her.
Jesse and Liz both worked for many years at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Fairfield Baptist in Cypress, Texas and have been in Latin America serving since 2013.
Jesse, Liz, and Hudson (Luci the jury is still out) all LOVE to travel. Before they were married, Liz was a flight attendant for 5 years and spent that time traveling the world. God has given their family the opportunity to travel all over the world, and they have been impacted in a big way by the beauty of God's lands and people that He created. No matter where they have been, they have found that people are people. No matter where you live, every person on earth was created to know God’s love; and Jesse, Liz, and Hudson have a desire to show that Love to Latin America.
