James on mission in Africa
James and Cindy have been married for 16 years and have four children: Gabby, Joshua, Maddie and Andy. They have been at North Metro since June 2006, live in the community and love every minute! James grew up just outside London, England while Cindy is originally from the Bay Area. They met in New York, lived in Houston and moved to the mountains of Colorado in 1999. It is a long story...
James' loves to teach God's Word and apply its timeless truths to our culture and daily lives.  He attempts to make sure the messages are founded upon God’s Word, relevant and touch different learning styles, infusing media, props and object lessons when appropriate. His iphone is constantly filled with various teachers and preachers in order to learn and improve!
Education and learning is an important part of his life. He has a BA in Media and Print Journalism from the University of Westminster (London), an MA in Leadership and Education from the University of Colorado and has completed the credits to earn an M.Div equivalency from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
James has a passion for local evangelism and international missions, leading teams to Africa (three times),  India (twice) and his home country of England over the past 9 years. He was also part of a team from North Metro that served in Thailand in 2007 and led North Metro's largest overseas missions team to East Africa in 2009.  A smaller team headed back to Arusha, Tanzania in the summer of 2010 to serve at a strategic partner church to lead a national pastor's conference. In June 2011, 17 missionaries from North Metro spent time in Arusha and Kibera, Nairobi to serve local churches. James also serves on the Executive Board of the Colorado Baptist General Convention.
James has written and taught a New Testament Survey and edited an Old Testament Survey specifically for Indian Pastors. However, James' true love, behind God, Cindy and the kids is football (soccer), tennis, golf and pretty much every sport imaginable as long as there is a competitive element involved. Cindy is an RN and works at a local hospital. They both love to read, watch movies, bike and hike whenever possible and hang out with the kids.
