PAUL D. WATSON is really good at helping people think through the big picture of what it would take to be a part of starting a movement in their community, city, state, or province.
Paul grew up overseas and got to see the birth of a modern Disciple Making Movement as his parents worked among an unreached people group in Northern India. Much later in life, God called him to devote his life to helping people fall in love with Jesus by training disciple-makers and their teams around the world. Along with a few friends, Paul founded Contagious Disciple Making to apply the principles of Disciple Making Movements in the USA and Canada so that people who wouldn't normally go to church would have a chance to fall in love with Jesus and live in spiritual community. He is a regular instructor for Perspectives on the World Christian Movement and co-authored Contagious Disciple Making: Leading Others on a Spiritual Journey of Discovery with his father, David Watson. He and his wife, Christi, have been married for 18 years. They live in Beaverton, OR, with their three children, six chickens, a dog, and a hamster named ‘Blue.'
JUBILEE TRANSITION HOMES is a place for people (only men at this time) to transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
We are a faith-based ministry in partnership with other community agencies, churches and ministries. Together we demonstrate caring for the needy and marginalized among us through transitional homes. We support the greater cause of seeing our community expressly loving God and each other. We see our contribution as caring for the needy among us through transitional homes.
These homes are directly overseen by live in managers and indirectly managed by our board of directors. Our goal for each of our residents is that upon leaving Jubilee they will be gainfully employed and have an apartment or home of their own that they are able to maintain.
