For Jim, a short trip to Turkey in 2015 began the long overdue journey towards ministry. Over the following two years, He had the opportunity to return to Turkey and participate with another mission organization, Global Training Network, in Cambodia. During these trips, God revealed to Jim a vision to walk alongside those in ministry.
Jim is now serving others in ministry from the Worldwide Headquarters. He will be walking alongside others as a non-residential missionary. He is motivated by this verse: "Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works." - Hebrews 10:24. He does not believe that God's calling is limited to his work inside of NMSI, but reaches around the globe to anyone in need of encouragement and support.
Jim has been married to Krystal since 1999. They have lived in Nevada, Washington, Alabama, and Florida. They have two amazing children, Colin and Emerson. They have also traveled to several other countries. The travels have allowed them to view the world differently, full of wonder and intrigue. God has truly laid the groundwork for amazing ministry.
