Welcome to Otterness Missions. We are personally blessed that you have stopped by our website. This is the ministry efforts of me and my wife, Julia, through the various organizations and ministries we help facilitate. We simply call it “Otterness Missions” because God called each of us by name to come into His Kingdom and gave each of us giftings to use for advancing that kingdom. At Otterness Missions we hope you will be encouraged to go out as yourself and use your giftings personally or for your organization, ministry or business to do evangelism in a relevant way.

Julia is the founder of the fine art ministry called Genesis 1-1 Fine Art. By going through the Days of Creation we’re able to restore the fine arts for His Glory as we evangelize and disciple artists and art lovers.
GX International (Global Xpressions) was founded in 1997. Julia has staffed with them since 1998 and I have since 2009. GX is an evangelistic hip-hop dance group. I primarily coordinate campaigns for them in the U.S.A., Mexico and Canada.
In 2011 the president of GX and his wife launched L3 International with a vision to reach the world’s overlooked and forgotten people. The 3 L’s mean Least, Lost, Last.
Youth With A Mission Kansas City is the mission base and home to GX International and where much of it’s staff reside when not on the road. We assist with their Discipleship Training Schools through local outreach.

Events and Outreach
Otterness Missions works with churches, ministries, businesses, governments and YOU. Much of what we do is in the Kansas City area when we are not traveling. We would love to have you at all of our events and outreaches so consider yourself invited. We serve in a wide range of outreach platforms that suit many different demographics. Maybe you have thought about being involved with missions. Well you don’t necessarily need to buy a plane ticket, just click on the calendar and pray about how you can be involved with one of the outreaches. If you don’t see one in your area then contact me and we can work on getting that set up anywhere in the USA.
Partner with Us
We are full-time missionaries serving under the L3 International organization. No one receives a salary from the organization so Julia and I have created partnerships with friends, family and churches. These personal partners contribute to us financially on a regular basis. This allows us to commit all of our time and resources to reaching communities with the Hope and Love of JESUS. Partner with us and become a part of our ministry.
