Jim brings experience working in difficult situations to realize positive outcomes and direction.Jim has been a committed follower of Jesus since 1975. Although a work in progress, he seeks to be led, empowered, and taught by the indwelling Holy Spirit day by day, moment by moment in all areas of life. Jim and Anne have been married for 42 years. They have three beautiful married children; Benjamin (Erica), Nathan (Monique), and Emily (Ryan), and enjoy seven precious grandchildren.
"I seek to love God with my his heart, to love myself, and those around me," Jim says. He seeks to do this by helping himself and others realize that we are precious in God's sight, that He wants to restore His relationship with us, and produce the fruit of the Spirit through us. Jim believes that the Holy Spirit is the catalyst in His endeavour and His Church will be the result despite any and all opposing forces.
