Jim Hays

Board Chair and Elder

Jim is, in order of importance, a follower of Jesus and a Christian Hedonist (you’ll have to ask him about that last part), a husband to Ann, a father to Sarah, James and Philip; and father-in-law to Michael. He is a grandfather to Katelyn and Nicholas; a son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew and cousin to too many to name. In addition, Jim is a friend to more people than he deserves, and fewer than he should be, an employer and colleague for those in his small consulting company, an Army brat, and retired from the Army. Jim confesses that he has yet to correctly live out the above priorities.

Jim’s ministry passions are teaching, and sharing the Gospel and serving the least of these through the ministry of Living Water International—sharing a cup of water in Jesus’ name. His hope and desire is to be used by God as God pursues the lost and matures His followers.  And Jim desperately hopes that God grows him in that process as well.
