James has been serving as Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults under the tutelage of Dr. William Horner since November of 2001.He was called as the full time pastor when Dr. Horner returned to Tennessee in 2007. He continues to lead the Youth in their activities. He and his wife, Suzie, have been married 24 years, blessed with 3 sons and all active in the life of ministry.
His philosophy for youth ministry is to strengthen saved youth in the doctrines of the faith so that they may become the light and salt among their peers. This primary focus is coupled with activities that give opportunities for relationship building. These fun outings provide an open door to share the gospel of Christ to both youth and parent. In many youth programs fun and games are of primary focus, however, we prefer to focus on the life changing message of Godsí Word so that our joy will be complete in Christ. His additional responsibilities are to preach, teach and minister to the community of Princess Anne.
