God initially connected Jimmy with New International in early 2011 after his friends, the Hannekens, affiliated with the mission. Since then he has had the opportunity to support and encourage many missionaries that are a part of New International. He has also participated in several short-term missions projects with Ends of the Earth Cycling, a ministry of New International.
Jimmy is a dreamer that follows Jesus, loves his family & shares hope. He has been in pastoral ministry since 2005 and has held a variety of positions within the church including: worship leader, youth pastor, church planter, lead pastor and children's pastor. He believes that God has put him on the planet to share hope and encourage and walk with people. He is humbled to be a part of God's story by serving to make a global impact through New International and locally through First Christian Church Fort Myers.
Working with other New International affiliates in Human Resources, Jimmy facilitates prayer for all New International missionaries and their families, coordinates weekly services that are available for our missionaries around the world to view and provides pastoral support and encouragement for the New International CGO staff and anyone else that needs support. Jimmy also travels and serves on short-term projects as the Lord leads and shares hope through writing, music, podcasting and speaking.
