Vision: In a culture in which churches are trying to reach the lost by being culturally relevant, Pastor Jim believes that the clear teaching and application of the Word of God is the method in which the Holy Spirit cultivates change in His own children and draws the unbeliever to Himself.

Pastor Jim loves God's Word and loves God's people. His goal is to preach and teach the Word of God expositional with such clarity and personal application that WBBC will be "conformed to the image of Jesus Christ."

He believes with firm, loving conviction that the best way to influence our culture is to bring souls to Jesus Christ by maintaining a solid personal testimony and witness, teaching and preaching the Word of God with passion, and discipling new believers with the Word of God.

He reminds the youth that real faith in Christ is more than just storing up facts about the Bible in your head; it's a way of life—the only way to live: having a real, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Pastor Nathan and Mrs. Lori seek to minister one-on-one with the teens as well as their parents, and seek to reach beyond their academic needs to help minister to the greater spiritual needs of those families.
