Jim was born in Detroit Michigan and raised in the suburbs of Detroit. Married to his wonderful wife
Kathy. They are a proud couple of 5 grandkids. Jim was raised by great parents who loved and served
the Lord, as they attend Faith Baptist Church of Royal Oak, MI. His main profession was as an Electrical Contractor, and Builder. He also spent 26 years as a part-time deputy Sheriff with the Oakland County Sheriffs Dept. After Jim was married, they continued on in the Lords service at another Baptist Church working with the senior high, and college and career group for 13 years, and served on the leadership team for 4 years. They have been coming to Florida since 1994 as much as possible until 2002 when they were able to spend their winters here. About 5 years ago they were introduced to Welcome Home by Rick Flack, the Associate Pastor and started attending. They have been involved helping with different projects and enjoying their worship here. When approached by the staff about being an elder and seeing the excitement about our church Jim was excited to be part of the Godly team that is serving at this church alongside two awesome Pastors.
