Jim is our interim pastor. He moved from Washington, DC in 1995 to be a church planter for the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention. He and his wife, Sally, started SonRise Community Church in Scottsdale, Arizona with 25 people, and in 12 years the congregation grew to 700. Jim has pastored eight churches in the USA and four churches in England. He has served as Interim Pastor to four churches in Texas and Ohio. He has led more than 40 revivals in five different states. He also served as Regional BSU Director at Ohio State University, Ohio University and 27 southeastern Ohio campuses.
On July 11, 2012, Jim was voted unanimously to become the interim pastor here - in which he accepted. We are glad to have him and his wife, Sally, with us.
