My story

As part of the U.S. Engagement Team, Jimmy is driven by a strong desire and calling to see more missionaries sent, supported and served by the local church. He wants to help churches understand how they can participate in effective, fruitful cross-cultural missions locally and around the world. In addition, he works to see more missionaries called to serve and to fulfill the International Ministries goal of 20 Converge initiatives fully staffed and funded by 2026.

Jimmy has served in pastoral roles in the church since entering ministry in 1999. He enjoyed time in youth ministry, administration, church planting and replanting, but always with a desire to strengthen the cross-cultural ministry of the church.

Over the past 19 years, Jimmy has trained and led 30 short-term teams, helped be a driver for mobilizing the church for missions and encouraged missionaries on the field. Most recently Jimmy served as the training coordinator and director of operations for Horizons International in Boulder, Colorado – a ministry focused on reaching the Muslim world. Married with three children, Jimmy, his wife, Amanda, and their family live in Aurora, Colorado, and attend Stapleton Church in Denver.

U.S. Church Mobilization Specialist // Our greatest privilege is joining Jesus in what he is building: his church. When we reach across the street and around the world with the gospel—locally and globally—we impact lives for eternity.
