About James
  • Education: No formal theological training. But i do have some college credits no degrees.
  • Experience: I first felt called to preach when I was 16. I fought it and ran from the call for a couple of years although I preached my first sermonette at the age of 16. It wasn’t until 3 years ago I decided to get a license. But the pastor I sat under for 28 years said he had no room for anyone to get their license. So I switched from that orginization to the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ International Inc. I currently have a general ministers license. I will become a fully ordained in 2007. I am also the St. Louis Fire Dept. Chaplain since 2005. I also have been employed by the Fire Dept as an EMT since 1989.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: They all reflect my beliefs in God. I try to give you a something to think about.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: 12 Things in Hell We Need In The Church. You can find this posted on Sermon Central.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: See "Something Funny that happened"
  • Family: I have a lovely wife we were married in 1992. I have 2 children, a daughter born in 1993, a son born in 1996.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My dad never got to hear me preach as he was only in church for 2 months before he died. But he did get Baptized in Jesus name and received the Holy Ghost while on his death bed 1 day before he died from cancer. My mom loves to hear me preach and is proud of me.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says I’m getting better every time I preach.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: If your nervous just look above the congregation but don’t look them in the eye. That way it looks like your looking their way. Plus no one can say why are you preaching at me.
  • Hobbies: I love being field trip dad for my children.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Get right with God he’s coming soon!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I was preaching a Young Peoples service. I had made arrangements in advance for 2 people to help me with a skit while preaching a message called "Buy the Truth and Sell It Not" Youth #1 (my pastors grandson)had a Bible that had certain scriptures marked. Our Asst. Pastor ( the Pastors son ) was to come in, on cue, wearing a trench coat and hat and offer Youth 1 some drugs. He did such a good job that one of our dear sweet elders got up with her umbrella and said you leave that young man alone. It was hard but I kept on preaching while watching this unfold. My mom was sitting right behind the elder and as she started to go toward Bro. Micky to hit him with her umbrella my mom said that’s Bro. Micky then the elder sat back down laughing. Meanwhile Bro. Micky never knew this happened until after church.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He was dedicated to saving souls and saving lives.
