Castro Valley, CA

Currently an elder at Providence Bible Church in Rocklin, Ca, I have served in pastoral ministry for over 20 years. In addition, I have served with Joni and Friends Disability ministry since 2004 working in a variety of volunteer capacities at Family Retreats, including camp pastor, worship leader, and small group leader.

2013 Workshop

Special Needs: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made; A Pastor's perspective about how local churches can intentionally include and reach out to a people affected by disabilities.


As the pastor of a growing congregation, Jim thought he was adequately addressing the needs of people with disabilities. Then his daughter was diagnosed with a debilitating genetic disorder. As her health declined, he became painfully aware of how ill-equipped he and his church were to effectively care for those suffering with disabilities. His perspective changed, and his congregation began to develop a new compassion for families with special needs. Come hear the story of his family and learn the perspective-changing truths that prepare a church for disability ministry.
