Jim has served as the Music Pastor at Country Woods since January 2000. He was born in Rolling Fork, MS and grew up in Yazoo City. Jim surrendered to the ministry at age 19 while finishing his Electronics Degree at Holmes Technical College. He then went on to earn his Bachelors of Music Education from Delta State University. He has been married to his best friend Laurie for 32 wonderful years. They have 2 daughters (Mitzi and Vicki), 2 sons-in-law (Brett and Jamie), and 4 grandchildren (Layni, Tyler, Keaton, and Embree). Jim’s desire for Country Woods is that we would be a worshiping people, compelled by the person of Jesus and His Gospel. His hope and prayer is that our community would see our worship lived out in the way we sing, serve, give, and display the Gospel. Jim loves spending time with his family, hunting, riding 4 wheelers, and traveling to the mountains.
