Bro. James and his wife Tammy have been married for thirteen years and they have two sons Joshua and Josiah.

Bro. James says, “My greatest priority as Pastor is to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:12). My conviction is that only as people know God through His Word will they become passionate about fulfilling the Great Commission.”
