Jim began his career in the capital markets trading industry in the eurodollar options pit at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He eventually worked for the exchange in its rollout of their electronic trading systems and then moved to the London International Financial Futures Exchange to lead its US Technology division. During this time, Jim also completed his Master of Business Administration.
In 2010, Jim heeded God’s call to transition from trading technologies to enter into full-time ministry, working jointly as the chief marketing officer in a trading technologies company while co-founding a media-based outreach ministry. Jim’s ministry involvement since then has been through leadership roles with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Campus Crusade for Christ
Jim leads three of Chicago’s 14 LeaderImpact groups and writes curriculum for LeaderImpact. When not leading groups or LeaderImpact staff, Jim and his wife Heidi are committed to their five children and two grandchildren.
Jim is currently on the Board of LeaderImpact in the US and is now Pastor of Evangelism at College Church in Wheaton, where he is also the head football coach and wrestling coach at Wheaton Academy in West Chicago, Illinois.
