Meet Pastor James


In 2011, James hung up his iconic green apron at the multi-billion dollar coffee industry of Starbucks to answer the Lord’s calling. While pursuing his M Div. at KPCA Northwestern Seminary, he found his perfect footing in the Foursquare community. He now leads Roots Church—a group that started out with 3 eager and faithful visionaries—alongside his beautiful wife and son Ronan. You can still find him frequenting a local Starbucks, counseling and administering to young people over his beloved cup of joe. Venti iced coffee with Sugar-free Vanilla and soy, if you’re curious.
