James has passion for people and a love for the Lord that is contagious. He grew up in Alabama, and became a Christian at the age of 18. A few years later, he gave up his passion for aviation and left his career at a large aviation company to move to North Carolina to attend Southeastern Free Will Baptist College. Spending a summer internship overseas in Honduras gave him a burden to help missionaries that are in need.
James is a graduate of Southeaster Free Will Baptist College. He is currently a Pastor in Virginia and is married to a wonderful woman Rebekah, and they have an adorable little boy Elijah.
After kneeling down at a sofa and surrendering his life to God on June 20, 2007, Oliver began serving in ministry. He graduated with his Bachelor of Theology degree from Summit Bible College in 2013. He has a deep passion for preaching God's Word and has been invited to preach in several churches around the country.
Oliver recently married his best friend, Danelle, and they reside in Bakersfield, California together. They are avid sports fans, enjoy eating at new places, and they love traveling the world together.
Note from our Founder
Missionary attrition rate. Hear about it very often? I doubt it. As I was finishing up my last semester of Bible College in 2012, God placed a burning passion in me to help lower the attrition rate among Evangelical missionaries. One morning as I read in Deuteronomy 3:28, "But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see." I knew at that moment that this was exactly what God wanted me to do with my life. Missionaries are of paramount importance and I believe if we foster them positively, they’ll pay huge dividends not only in the Kingdom of God, but also in our world today.
