God initially connected Jimmy with NMSI in early 2011 after his friends, the Hannekens, affiliated with the mission. Since then he has had the opportunity to support and encourage many missionaries that are a part of NMSI. He has also participated in several short-term missions projects with Ends of the Earth Cycling, a ministry of NMSI.
Jimmy is a son, dreamer, Jesus follower, friend, pastor, missionary and hope ninja. He is passionate about loving Jesus and others well. Jimmy has been in pastoral ministry since 2005 and has held a variety of positions within the church including: worship leader, youth pastor, church planter and lead pastor. He believes that God has put him on the planet to share hope and encourage and walk with people. He is humbled to be a part of God's story, serving alongside the world-changers of NMSI.
Working with other NMSI missionaries, Jimmy facilitates prayer for all NMSI affiliates and leadership, organizes weekly devos, and provides pastoral support and encouragement for the CGO staff and anyone else that needs support. Jimmy also travels and serves on short-term projects as the Lord leads.
