Having served in church music ministry for most of his life, James has a passion for music, worship, and the church. He sang in his church choir before he could read music, accompanied congregational singing before he could improvise, and was writing and arranging music long before he knew it “was a thing.” James is a published composer and arranger with some of the premiere publishing houses in the world, including Alfred Music, Hal Leonard, and the Lorenz Corporation. With hundreds of titles in print, his music is featured by choirs and instrumentalists in churches throughout the world.

James lives with his wife, Beth, and their four children, in Warner Robins, GA.
