About the Author

Raised in a wonderful Christian family, Jim became a believer at a very young age. As a result of pondering the glory of God in the starry skies, and through hearing the Gospel in good upbringing, he trusted Jesus and the Cross when he was only 5 or 6 years of age. Setting aside a four-year college scholarship, he attended Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, and began teaching the Bible while still in his teens. He has been involved in teaching ministry since 1972, expounding the Scriptures in weekly study groups, seminars, and conferences. Jim has taught numerous classes in biblical Hebrew and biblical archaeology, and has directed two study tours in Israel. Since 2001 he has made several trips to Asia, teaching the Bible to emerging national leaders. Now working with LeaderSource in the development of curriculum, Jim writes materials for biblical instruction and leader-building with special attention to cross-cultural relevance and personal transformation through a living relationship with Jesus Christ. Jim has never been to seminary, but he bears a burden to see sound theology and biblical truth communicated in an “Everyman” style.

We send out our own signals and cry out for a response, waiting and […]

Here Am I!

I know a man (2 Cor. 12:2) who shares about his time of ministry in “Asia” – working in a capital city of the hinterlands. He reports about that work in the story that follows.   A few years ago I was helping build about 20 young leaders in a secret training center. Senior leaders […]
