Our Sparrows Gate Mission goal is that homeless children and single destitute moms and their kids in Mexico, Belize, Amazon and the Philippines, come to know, love and serve Jesus.James 1:27 says that true religion is caring for orphans and widows and we have done our best to love and care for them with schools, orphanages and homes for single destitute moms and their children for more than 3 decades.The words of Psalm 67:2 are a constant reminder of our passionate plea. “Send us around the world with the news of your saving power and your eternal plan for all mankind.”“Most people think that the poorest child is the one without food, shelter, clothing or limbs; but the poorest child is the one without hope, without love.Knowing that a destitute, unloved child is waiting for someone to share the love of Jesus is reason enough for us to GO to the regions beyond.”
Chris Davis is Executive Administrator of Sparrows Gate. His years of business experience as a district manager of a Procter and Gamble subsidiary is a great benefit to Sparrows Gate. Over the years he has brought many youth groups to Sparrows Gate in Mexico to help with ministry, projects and building efforts and provides monthly financial support. Mission founder Dean Tinney, consults with Mr. Davis on many issues related to operations and funding in Mexico, Belize and Philippines.“For many years now I have been bringing youth groups from Salem, Oregon to serve the poor children of Baja at Sparrows Gate Mission’s children’s home and schools. We go to give but always come back with more than we gave. The verse, ‘Give and it shall be given unto you,’ comes to mind. Our young people agree. Giving our time and talent and even a cup of cold water to the poor children is rewarding beyond belief.” AL POMA I am honored to be a Sparrows Gate Mission Board member and be involved in decisions and ministry relating to Christian Schools that were birthed to allow children to attend, that would never be able to be educated elsewhere. We thank God for raising up Sparrows Gate Missions to reach adults and precious children in the Amazon, Belize, Mexico and the Philippines with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hearts and lives are changed forever! “I tell all of you with certainty, whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple will never lose his reward.”

Tim Glass found Christ at an early age having been raised in a pastor’s home with parents that lived what they believed. After high school, he attended Bible College in Minneapolis MN. After college, he worked several different jobs in management and volunteered in ministry within his church.
He eventually worked full-time as the Business Administrator in a church of 3000 in Minneapolis for 11 years. After his time in Minneapolis, he then served as Vice President of Business and Finance at Trinity Bible College in North Dakota for 2 years.
During that time he met Ron Rockwell from Phoenix. At Ron’s invitation, he moved to Phoenix where he currently serves as his Executive Pastor since 2012. Through a series of relationships, he met Dean Tinney and learned of Sparrows Gate and its mission.
He is in love with his wife and enjoys his 4 children and 9 grandkids. He counts it an honor to serve on the Sparrows Gate board.
