Rebecca: James, you’ve been a part of various ministries at Northland including sports, student ministries, and even special needs. Tell us a little about your background as you have had touchpoints in several areas over the years.
James: Before meeting Jesus face to face, my background was primarily from sports and entertainment. My early career was as a fight choreographer on multiple blockbuster films, as of more recent as a martial arts athlete winning the ISKA World Championships on ESPN. All Glory to God! I retired from competition last year and now plan to use sports and games for the Distributed Church.
Rebecca: Now you recently returned from Alexandria, Egypt. Please share a little bit about your trip.
James: Egypt is an amazing country! The food is delicious and the people are warm and hospitable. I have learned a great deal over the years from the Egyptians as they are sold out for Jesus and use things like sports and games so well to reach people for Christ.
Rebecca: Speaking of sports and games, “Game Night” is coming. Tell us about Thursday nights.
James: Starting Thursday, October 8th, from 5:30pm-8:30pm we will be meeting in the Rink, grabbing a bite to eat, playing board games in the foyer, video games in the game room, or playing sports on the field. You choose, let’s play!
