Our Story

We want to tell you a little about us.

The 413 Project is a collection of local believers committed to proclaiming truth and showing Christ’s love to the local community.

Our inspiration comes from Acts Chapter Four:


Following Pentecost, peter, John, and the others preached Christ with a new boldness.  Acts Chapter 4 records that the rulers, elders, and scribes, including Annas the priest, and Caiaphas, brough Peter and John before them.  Verse 13 records,

“Now when they saw the BOLDNESS of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were ASTONISHED. And they recognized that they had been with JESUS.”

Peter and John were men, common men and uneducated.  They had no special training, seminary degree, no funding but…they ahd been with Jesus, and that is all they needed.


The Lord has placed a call on every believer’s heart and we, at the 413 Project, aim to make these calls a reality, whatever they may be, no matter how impossible they may seem.


BRADFORD SMITH – Author – Founder

I’ve been married to my best friend Ami since 2001 and we stay very busy raising our nine children. She shares my passion for the orphan, the afflicted…the least of these.  Together we are committed to sharing the life-changing message of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I’ve been in the Army 20 years and I have multiple combat rotations to Iraq and Afghanistan. I am eagerly looking forward to my release (retirement) next summer after which time I intend to preach full time, write, and serve those in need. And if I can talk Ami into it, I plan on pursuing my doctorate in biblical counseling as soon as I can muster the time and energy!

AMI SMITH – Supermom – Community Action

Ami is a Superhero.  All moms are, but Ami goes above and beyond.  Her passion is caring for others and loving the children who have been trapped by the system. She blogs, speaks, and lives out her faith daily. She has been involved in the Tennessee foster and adoption care community for a number of years and is the the chair of local association. At The 413 Project Ami keeps Bradford in line, thats a full time job – but she is also the director of Boundless Ministries, a fledgling Non-Profit dedicated to meeting the needs of foster children.
