It takes everybody

We're bringing people together to change the world

The people building Everybody's Place

There are few things more wonderful than when people see a need and say "I'll help!".
Everybody's Place is being built by a diverse group of people who are saying "I'll help!". We're bringing our passions, experience, resources, time, and skills together to love our neighbor in need. We promise, if you bring whatever you have, the Lord will use it to expand his Kingdom in ways beyond anything you've ever imagined!

Paul & Tracey Clines
Paul & Tracey Clines

We are the most utterly ordinary people who simply decided to trust God and pursue Jesus’ command to love your neighbor with everything we have. We left the comfort and security of our full time jobs to give ourselves to this pursuit. We’re going to define success as giving ourselves completely to doing the things we’re pretty sure matter most to God. 

We live in Galveston County (Bacliff) and want our neighbors to know the hope, peace and salvation possible through Jesus, especially those in our community who live in extreme poverty.

As a pastor for 30+ years (Paul) and a nurse for 25+ years (Tracey), we believe our background and experience is the perfect launching pad for what we believe God has called us to do. So, we’re going to spend this next season of our lives working with others to establish a beautiful and safe place for anybody…everybody to meet Jesus, discover hope and learn to live and love like Jesus in the world today.
