Jim surrendered his life to Jesus when he was 20 years old, back in 1987. He was watching the Ten Commandments movie with his then girlfriend and her parents on a Good Friday and when Jim began to ask questions, his girlfriend’s father took the opportunity to share the Gospel and lead Jim to Christ. Jim married that wonderful girl and today, Jim and Pamela have been married for 34 years and Jim has been walking with Jesus for 35 years. Jim quickly grew into a passionate follower of Jesus and over the years he has served as an Associate Pastor at two different Calvary Chapel churches in Orange County and planted an outreach ministry to students at Chapman University in Orange, CA.
In 2018 Jim and Pamela became members of Calvary Church and have served in various ways but most recently Jim has been leading the Wednesday Night Men’s LifeGroup. He has a passion for Discipleship and the Word of God and helping people grow in their relationship with God. Jim works as a commercial banker where he is blessed to serve churches and Christian business owners. He and Pamela have two young adult daughters and look forward to being grandparents someday. Jim is an avid surfer and stand up paddler and loves being in the ocean.
