James WallProduction and Media - Email : email@example.com
James grew up in Renfrew Ontario just west of Ottawa. He's been saved since he was the age of 5 at OVPC. Since then he has been on a journey with his Savior, walking the path that He has set out for him. After high school, he felt God calling him to work in ministry, but not necessarily as a pastor, but more of a supporting role in music specifically. He went to Hillsong Australia and came back committing himself to serving in whatever capacity the church needed. A few years later his wife Sara also felt a deep call to go to Australia and attend Hillsong College. Since then, their lives have been changed. They are so thankful for the plan that God has for Bethel, and they are so humbled that they can be apart of it. His passion: to see the church being passionate and walking in fullness of Life with God. He loves nerdy electronic stuff, computers and mobile electronics. He's been told his peanut butter cookies are pretty good and he can be pretty handy with a slow cooker.
