In the mid nineteen seventies the Father God spoke to Bro. James in an audible voice saying, one day my son you will understand the knowledge of God; the Spirit of God came upon Bro. James in nineteen eighty seven and rested upon him night and day revealing Himself and His word in the holy Bible concerning Christ and the Church.
James started his ministry as a pastor in the African Methodist Episcopal church and later became an associate pastor in the Missionary Baptist Church. James graduated from the Word of Faith Bible School in 1983. He is a certificate holder with Rhema Bible School. James founded and pastured the Shinning Lights Christian Center for ten years. He hosted the World Overcoming Faith radio broad cast for three years. For five years James was a regular guest on the Christian Television Net work.
