Community Fellowship is led by a team of people with different backgrounds, experiences, and passions. Some are paid by the church, some are not. We are all just wanting to serve our community here in East Bernard by making Christ’s love known.

James has ministered to families for over 25 years serving churches in both Texas and Arkansas.  He is passionate about teaching scripture faithfully and compassionately.  He and his wife Emily have been married for over 20 years and have four incredible daughters: Karis, Mikaela, Rebekah, and Kadence.

He earned his Bachelor’s in Counseling from Texas A&M University in Commerce.  He also earned his Master’s in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary.

James loves all things theology which means you can usually find him reading a good book at Glory Bean Coffee Co.  He is an avid Dallas Stars hockey fan and St. Louis Cardinals fan.  He also loves spending time with his family watching movies around the fire pit.  And if you really want to win him over, he is always down for a good breakfast taco too!
