Prior to leading worship at Crossroads, Jim had been a part of many worship teams and praise choirs on the West Coast, from small church plants to mega-churches. Music has always played a significant part his life from the time he started a grade school rock band as drummer and lead singer until today.
While having no formal training, Jim’s love for music of almost any kind is further evidenced in his being self-taught on multiple instruments, including guitar, bass, drums, 5-string banjo and others.
A freelance writer/creative consultant by profession, Jim and his wife, Diana, moved to the Bitterroot Valley in 2015 and are convinced that God will use this supernaturally beautiful place as a template for His New Kingdom. Jim and Diana have four adult children who have blessed them with nine grandkids – so far!
