ABOUT JAMES LOUNSBERRY

Youth Pastor



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


MY ROLE

My call is to help walk with, mentor, and lead middle school and high school students in their journey with Christ. As we partner with families and their students it is my hope that we can create opportunities that will help shape and develop youth in living out their role in God's story.   

   • I also help by giving Pastor Dave someone else on staff that loves talking sports.  


IF I HAD MY DREAM VACATION I'D

Spend it with my beautiful wife on the beaches of Hawaii.

  

IF I COULD DO A HOBBY FOR A LIVING

It would be to coach basketball on any level. 

 

MY FAVORITE TEAM TO CHEER FOR IS

Anything Seattle: Seahawks, Mariners, Washington Huskies and hopefully one day again Sonics (In the meantime Trailblazers).

  

MY FAVORITE MOVIE IS

Ferries Buller’s Day Off. Not only one of the best ways to live out a day, but I actually did something very similar to it my senior year of high school.  


MY FAVORITE BOOK IS

Crazy Love by Francis Chan.


MY MOST REWARDING ACTIVITY IS

Any chance I have getting to serve meals at a soup kitchen or Mission


MY FAMILY

I have been blessed to be married to my amazing wife Bethany since 2005! She is truly my better half and makes me a better man and husband each day.  


MY BACKGROUND

Graduated from Northwest Nazarene University in 2006 with my BA in Religious studies (emphasis in Youth Ministry). I have been honored to serve in the great cities of Bremerton, WA (2005-2010), Yakima, Wa (West Valley 2010-2016), before being called to the Midwest, to join this awesome team here at MidNaz!
