Before coming to The Church at Spruce Creek, James and Joy served Christ among the poorest of the poor in Jocotan, Chiquimula, Guatemala.  There they ministered with Outreach for World Hope, whose mission is to improve the quality of life of the world’s poor by providing humanitarian aid, hope and compassion without regard to race, color, nationality or religious affiliation.

James grew up in Bolivia and Joy in Maine. James graduated from Wheaton College (IL) with a BA in Bible and Communications. Joy graduated from NHCTC-Stratham as a Registered Nurse. They met in NH at a Bible Study in Febuary 2007 resulting in marriage on July 5, 2008.  They’ve enjoyed serving the Gospel cause in their local church (Eliot Baptist) and on the mission field in Guatemala, but have been drawn to make their impact for Christ in the mission field of South Costal Maine and New Hampshire.
