Jim Walters

Jim Walters

Elder | College Ministry Leader

For 31 years Jim ran hard down the wrong road, one that promises a destination filled with success, fun and happiness. The reality it was a road of emptiness, brokenness, and regret. Jesus found Jim in “the pit”, it was dark, filthy and deep; there seemed to be no way out. That is when Jesus showed up to him. He put Jim’s feet on solid ground and gave him a new song of hope and joy! Jim loves to read, work around their small farm, and enjoy family and those in his college ministry.
