Hi, I’m James and I’m the Youth Pastor at St James. I grew up in Fort McMurray, Alberta with 3 siblings and a pastor father and stay at home mother. I Moved to Victoria to attend university where I got a degree in Biology. Then I came to Calgary in search of work in my field. Long story short, they weren’t that good and instead I became a youth pastor. I enjoyed being a youth and I still enjoy doing youthful things and hanging out with teens and young adults. I love to learn and teach about God and the wonderful things He is doing in the world today. My faith makes me who I am, and my relationship with God is the most important thing in my life. Second to God is my gorgeous wife Carissa, who I met in Calgary and married in just 5 months. We share a passion for music, movies, and people.
When not youth pastoring or writing bio’s I like to play drums and guitar, board games, and contact sports, as well as watching television series on Netflix.
