Jim has been married for twenty-fives years to Jennifer, and they have two boys in elementary and middle school at CCCS. A lover of basketball, Jim has coached for over twenty-five years. He is a member of Open Door Christian Fellowship.

I teach because I like working and ministering to youth. I feel the Church is responsible for ‘bearing witness’ to all God’s truth, and the only place that prerogative can be completely and fully taught in every discipline is in a Christian educational institution.
