James grew up on a farm outside of Elgin, OR. After high school, he attended Northwest Nazarene University and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Ministry. Not long after James graduated from NNU, he married his beautiful wife, Rachel, and moved to Spokane, WA to take on his first full-time youth ministry assignment. In 2017, God directed James and Rachel to move to Twin Falls to be a part of our pastoral team.
When James has free time, he enjoys watching or playing basketball, playing board games with friends, or watching something on Netflix with Rachel.
