USAF Academy, CO
You did not choose Me but I chose you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last.
Jim first became involved with The Navigators when he rededicated his life to Christ as a freshman cadet at the Air Force Academy. The USAFA Navigator ministry taught him how to grow as a Christian and prepared him well to serve God and country as a career Air Force officer.
We are excited to serve as Navigator staff because we love ministering to military people and their families. Having served on active duty for nearly 21 years, Christie and I are dedicated to serving the military and helping make disciples for Jesus in the second half of our lives. We have been called to bear fruit that will last (John 15:16). We consider this a privilege, and are humbled and excited to serve the Lord by "serving those who serve" on this faith adventure.
After having received our initial staff training at Offutt AFB, we are now humbly leading the Navigators Ministry at the USAF Academy. We are so excited to return to USAFA for the third time after having been a cadet, instructor and AOC, and now in ministry full-time. What a blessing to serve the Lord at USAFA which is a place where the Lord touched Jim's life in a mighty way in his younger years, and our prayer is that He will continue to work mightily there for His glory and purposes for many years to come.
We love helping people know Christ, grow in their spiritual journey, deal with the difficulties and challenges of military life, and be used by the Lord to help and reach out to others!
