Jim has been on staff with New Life Christian Fellowship (NLCF) at Virginia Tech for 23 years and has been one of its pastors for 18. He and his wife Tracy have three kids that are all in college so now a few of his hobbies are to pay everybody’s tuition and keep an extensive fleet of aging cars semi-street-legal. Jim is pursuing a doctorate from Northern Seminary in Contextual Theology and received his Masters from Leland. When he isn’t making payments to various institutions of higher learning and pastoring, he consults with churches, coaches other pastors, and speaks on emerging cultural issues. He wrote “Should We Fire God?” in 2009 and looks forward to writing again once the endless process of post-graduate education is finished.
