About My Family

Hi, my name is James. I am a church planting team member with Kaleo Communities in Portland, OR. I love the outdoors and I enjoy hiking, skiing, snowshoeing or trail-running on my days off. I am also a musician and enjoy listening to music, making music and attending concerts. I am an alumnus of the University of Georgia and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

About My Church Plant

Kaleo Communities is a church plant in northeast Portland, Oregon. We are calling the city of Portland to experience the redemptive rule and reign of Jesus Christ. We do this in our everyday rhythms of life by building relationships in our work, our neighborhoods and our patterns of leisure. We saturate our conversation with the gospel and biblical principles so we can make disciples among people we regularly interact with. Since our church is still in the early growing phase, my ministry is primarily in building relationships and making disciples so our church can grow. I hope to see this one day grow into an outreach ministry that targets artists, musicians and creative types to teach them how to use their gifts for God, to serve the church and to multiply in making disciples.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.
