    Content Strategist

    Jena comes to 3e Restoration with a passion for storytelling and experience working alongside people of diverse backgrounds in cross-cultural contexts. She aims to convey impactful stories with integrity which express human dignity inherent to all of God’s creation.

Jesus specifically reached the marginalized in a way that was dignifying, not demeaning - as such, we should do the same.

  • Tessa Voss

    Auburn University Intern

    Global Studies in Human Sciences

    Nutrition & Food Security

    Tessa is entering her senior year at Auburn University in Auburn, AL. She is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Global Studies in Human Sciences and a minor in Hunger Studies.


    Tessa has always found helping others to be a passion. From international mission trips, to church outreach programs, to involvment with various local organizations, she has always found helping those in need to be rewarding. Since entering the Global Studies program last Fall, her ideology of how to do so has been completely morphed by various experiences. In the Spring, Tessa was exposed to some daunting realities when it comes to poverty and how to help those in need. Through research and discussion in her Intro to Hunger Studies class and a trip to Williamsburg with her campus ministry to learn about the 3e Restoration Process, her eyes were opened to complex systemic issues and the importance of working alongside the people when it comes to poverty alleviation both domestically and globally. Tessa spent four weeks this summer studying abroad on a remote island in Fiji learning about sustainability and community development. While there, she saw yet another example of the importance of working alongside the people and working towards empowering them to be self-sufficient. She is now looking forward to learning more about how to approach poverty alleviation from a holistic, community based perspective on a domestic level with 3e Restoration, Incorporated.

For sixteen years Fred has walked closely and personally with those living through homelessness and extreme poverty.

    He received his B.S. in Ministry/Bible at Amridge University and his Masters of Religious Education in Missional Leadership (MREML) from Rochester College. Currently he is pursuing his Doctorate of Ministry in Contextual Theology in at Northern Seminary in Chicago.

    He enjoys hanging out with his family anytime, anywhere. Fred is deeply grateful for how God graciously works through His Church in all her various forms, despite our brokenness. He is passionate about seeing the last, least and lost of every neighborhood, city and nation experience God's in-breaking kingdom, and come to know Jesus as King. His greatest hope is that the Church will continue to experience missional renewal as gospel-centered, kingdom-shaped communities learning to enjoy God and participate in what He is doing in this world as His everyday people, living in everyday places, offering tangible expressions of love, hope and peace in everyday ways. Fred constantly finds himself in need of God's mercy and grace every day, and is prematurely balding.
