Jim was a born again believer in Christ Jesus his Savior, and attended church faithfully. God inspired him to organize the "Music on the Farm" ministry consisting of gospel music groups, and encouragement meetings for people needing spiritual help. His wife and children became involved, and with their help made this ministry a 10-year spiritual success to a large number of people throughout central and southern Ohio.

Jim started American Country Yard Barns and marketed them for storage buildings for 25 years. His passion was helping people spiritually, through Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Jim enjoyed activities with his family, and sharing time with his friends during our gospel sings and meetings at the barn. He enjoyed coffee with his good friend, Bill Hubbard.
