Before entering the ministry, Jim was a professional investment advisor in Toronto (Canada) – eventually starting and directing his own financial planning firm. God got a hold of Jim’s heart, and called him into ministry. Jim (and his wife, Claudia) love to use their entrepreneurial gifts to advance the cause of Christ through church planting. Jim leads Impact Ministry Group–an organization involved in church planting in Canada and Eastern Europe.
