"The music that James presents is worshipful and heartfelt. He humbly acknowledges that his exquisite and comprehensive musical gifts; composer, instrumentalist and vocalist; come from Holy Spirit. His music engages people in active worship of the Lord so that they can come to Him as true worshipers; worshiping in Spirit and in Truth. Through his music ministry James has greatly enhanced the worship life of our congregation."
