Jim and his wife, Julie, launched the dPhoenix Project USA in January of 2007. Jim is a nationally appointed U.S. Missionary with the Assemblies of God serving as a Chaplain.
Their goal is to provide help for people in crisis, or those who have been traumatized by life, to find hope and headling.
Through training seminars they educate and train individuals how to help their friends and neighbors with tools on how they cand provide emotional and spiritual care, as well as meeting practical needs in a crisis situation.
For local churches, they provide an assessment program, next steps strategy in the preparation process to respond to the needs of their community, and a process of connecting with others that have a similar passion. For example, in Santa Cruz County, Jim works with local churches, government agencies and non-government agencies through the development of a local VOAD – Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster.
Jim also serves on the following leadership teams: Chairman of the Disaster Relief Task Force for the Northern California/Nevada (NCN) District Council of the Assemblies of God; the NCN District’s Honor Bound Men’s Ministries Leadership Team and Vice President of NorCal VOAD.
