Jim grew up in Haiti and has been a follower of Jesus since the age of seven.  His family moved to Toronto when he was twelve, where he attended Bayview Junior High and Jarvis Collegiate Institute.  He received a B.S. in Biblical Studies from Cairn University and an M.A. from Dallas Theological Seminary.  In 1990 he married Mary, who holds a B.S. and M.Ed. in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University.  Together they have three children: Austin, Tyler and Téa.

Jim served in Haiti (1986-94), working in theological education and an outreach to the business and professional community.  In 1994 he moved to Monte Carlo, where he pastored the Monaco Christian Fellowship for 17 years.  Jim currently serves as President of Crossworld Canada and resides with his family in Mississauga, Ontario.
