About James Westervelt

Education: My wife and I both attended Columbia Bible College in Columbia, SC, and Northeastern Bible College in Essex Fells, NJ, from which I graduated in 1970.

Comment to those looking at my sermons: Make sure you visit our website, where some of these sermons are more colorful, and illustrated. There is lots to see on our website - you will be so blessed :) www.LovingGrace.net

Sermon or series that made a difference: Series on Revelation; series on the Fruit of the Spirit.

Family: My wife, Joy and I have three children and nine grandchildren. Our son & his wife work for Apple Computer in NJ; Our oldest daughter lives in PA with her husband and three of her four children. Our youngest daughter has five children, and she and her husband own European Plastering Co. in NJ

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She types them all out for me :) She sometimes has input :)

Best advice given to me about preaching: Bathe it in prayer, rely on God.

Books that have had an impact: 1. Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren 2. Power Through Prayer by E.M Bounds

Hobbies: walking, swimming, reading.

Something funny that happened while preaching: I once tripped on the microphone chord - that was back when I was Assistant Pastor at Evangel Baptist Church in Springfield, NJ. The youth group I led at the time thought it was pretty funny!

What I want on my tombstone: For me to live is Christ and to die is gain!
