Jim is a bold preacher with two master's degrees: M.A. in Social Studies from Azusa Pacific University M.A. in Intellectual Leadership from A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary.

Jim's testimony isn't just a testimony.  It's a story that will take you on a journey back to your own childhood and your own deep encounter with God's grace.  To hear Jim share his story is to relive Jim's story with him.  Right On Mission will be featuring a portion of Jim's testimony soon on video.
