The Davis Family
Missionaries to Salt Lake City, Utah – ON DEPUTATION
Allen and Angie Davis began their ministry soon after the Lord burdened their hearts for the town of Chester, California. While visiting friends in Chester they realized there was no independent Baptist church in the area. They spent the next several years praying, preparing and traveling on deputation, then moved to Chester CA in 2017 to start Lighthouse Baptist Church.
In May 2019, regional wildfires and the local restrictions placed on the Community Center caused them difficulty in finding a home or meeting place for church services. Heartbroken, they realized that God closed the door for them in Chester. As they continued to stay busy serving wherever God opened doors, the burden for the west remained. Another trip out west in October 2019 to the Salt Lake City area revealed a new direction for the Davis family.
Utah’s population is over 3.1 million people, with approximately 2.5 million of those in the Salt Lake Valley. Approximately 62% of Utahns are reported to be members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS Church), making Utah the only state with the majority of the population belonging to a single “church.” Salt Lake City is the LDS church world headquarters and the location of the largest LDS Temple.
God has called the Davis family to do as the Apostle Paul in Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins…”
Allen and Angie have been married since 1993 and are members of Mt. Logan Baptist Church in North Logan, Utah. They have 4 children, Justin, Jordan, Jenny and Julia.
