God initially connected Jimmy with New International in early 2011 after his friends, the Hannekens, affiliated with the mission. Since then he has had the opportunity to support and encourage many missionaries that are a part of New International. He has also participated in several short-term missions projects with Ends of the Earth Cycling, a ministry of New International.
Jimmy is a dreamer that follows Jesus, loves his family & shares hope. He has been in pastoral ministry since 2005 and has held a variety of positions within the church including: worship leader, youth pastor, church planter, lead pastor and children's pastor. He believes that God has put him on the planet to share hope and encourage and walk with people. He is humbled to be a part of God's story by serving to make a global impact through New International and locally through First Christian Church Fort Myers.
Jimmy facilitates prayer for all New International missionaries and serves on New International’s Child Sponsorship team as an advocate to give children in Narok, Kenya hope by connecting them with sponsors. Jimmy also travels and serves on short-term projects as the Lord leads and shares hope through writing, music, podcasting and speaking.
