Jim is a native of PA, born and raised just south of Pittsburgh in Connellsville. He attended Waynesburg College, graduating in 2001 with a BA in graphic design. He has been involved in youth ministry since 2003, serving in three different churches. Taking a brief stint away from youth ministry, he also served as a Program Director of a Christian camp and retreat center.
Jim met and married Sara, also a Waynesburg alum, in 2002. Sara has a background in non-profit management. Jim and Sara have been blessed to work closely in youth ministry uniting their spiritual gifts build relationships with youth, families, volunteers, and the greater church body.
In 2015, they joyfully welcomed their son Rhys (pronounced Reece, but with the Welsh spelling). Sara has been blessed to be a stay-at-home mom.
Jim, Sara, and Rhys are excited to join in God’s work at Lifepoint and prayerfully build God’s kingdom.
