J.D. Mangrum

Church Planting Resident

Hailing from the great state of Georgia, J.D. and his wife Natalie moved to Greenville, South Carolina to plant Origins church in Greenville. Origins connected many artists and young professionals to Christ. After leading Origins to partner with new churches in Boston, their love for Boston grew and God called the Mangrum family to do it again, to pack up and plant their lives in Boston to start another church. J.D. is serving with Charles River Church while receiving training and preparing to plant a new church for the city of Boston.
