John Dutton
Co-Founder/ President

John & Terina Dutton are the Co-founders of Heavenly Hope Ministries, an organization working primarily in Ethiopia, Uganda, and Sudan. Their hearts’ desire is to reflect the love of Jesus, seeking to be His hands and feet by not only meeting the basic needs of the poor, orphaned and widowed but also by bringing them the true hope that only comes through relationship with Him.

John has been a professional football player for the last 13 years but considers running Heavenly Hope Ministries his true calling. He is the Co-Founder of Athletes For The Nations, a ministry focused on transforming the lives of athletes of all ages, shifting their focus from being “successful” to using their success for a greater purpose: to live a life of “significance.”

John & Terina are also passionate about challenging EVERY believer to live out TRUE biblical generosity (Acts 4: 32-37, 2:45-47), recognizing that God has been generous to us “so that we can be generous to others” ( 2 Cor 9:7). Their desire is to help the body recognize their biblical mandate to defend the poor and needy (Proverbs 31:8, Jer 22:16), to do justice every morning (Jer 21:12), and to care for the orphan and widow (James 1:27).

They have five children, two of which are adopted from Ethiopia, and three biological.

Carlee Marlow

Born and raised in Mt. Shasta, Carlee is a 4th generation local.  From the time she was 17 until present day, she has always had a heart for missions and travel. She has traveled to China, Singapore, Dubai, and India.  Partly for a mission trip, partly pure discovery.  During her travels, she had never felt closer to God. Realizing for the first time, that even when she is on the other side of the world, He was still with her, He was still working and present outside of her little comfort zone.  She still tries to live outside of her comfort zone, so that she is always relying on Jesus.  When she isn’t at One Heart Collective, you can find her hiking, jumping in waterfalls, and “living with her head in the clouds so she is a little closer to Jesus.”
