James was graciously converted to Christ at the age of 8. He has felt the call of God to pastoral ministry upon His life for many years, and has had his gifts and callings confirmed. James will be attending the Masters University, and subsequently the Masters Seminary online, while being trained pastorally within the context of his local church. Above all, James simply desires to be found faithful, and counts it His most undeserved privilege, and honor to serve Christ in pastoral ministry. He desires to see the people of God, fed by the Word of God as it is rightly divided. It is to that end, and to the glory of Christ, He has devoted his life to serve in pastoral ministry.”
