James is the Founder and Lead Pastor of Bridge Church NYC. James was born and raised in Westchester, NY. Though he grew up in church, his relationship with God was defined more by praying for wins in football and passing classes in school. It wasn’t until college, that he was introduced to a consistent lifestyle of living for God, through Campus Crusade for Christ. He met his wife, Natarsha, doing college ministry at a leadership conference. James and Natarsha have two daughters; Faith who is six and Leah who is five. James enjoys working out, listening to 90s hip-hop, and reading on social and political issues.
