Then you will really like Pastor Jim!
Pastor Jim Frease is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Joy Church, as well as Founder and President of World Changers Bible Institute (WCBI) in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.
Pastor Jim Frease is also the founder of Joy Ministerial Exchange (JME), a ministerial organization designed to impart to pastors from across the country.
He is the primary instructor at WCBI and has been ministering since 1984.
Pastor Jim emphasizes a relationship for Jesus Christ, not religion; the Word of God, and not tradition; and he emphasizes enjoying your life, not enduring it.
Pastor Jim always puts an emphasis on not just what you need to do, but how you need to do it.
He is a very encouraging teacher who always leaves a light at the end of the tunnel...and it's not an oncoming train!
Under the mandate of God, Pastor Jim and his wife Anne founded Joy Church in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.
Pastor Jim and Anne also founded World Changers Bible Institute (WCBI) in 1992, a Bible school for future leaders of all ages.
Pastor Jim and Anne also have headed up "Joy To The World", a short-term summer missions program in other countries.
This ministry has emphasized evangelistic and discipleship opportunities for WCBI students as they have the opportunity to put classroom concepts into practical application (James 1:25).
Countless lives have been affected for eternity via this powerful missions outreach (Matt. 24:14)!
Pastor Jim has a tremendous heart to plant churches.
The Joy Church network continues to grow as he
spiritually covers and mentors church plants in Johnson City, Tennessee; Columbus, Ohio; and West Palm Beach, Florida as well as a ministry in Rochester, New York.
Most importantly, Pastor Jim and Anne are deeply in love with the Lord Jesus Christ and are completely committed to His Word.
Anne loves to shop...so, as Pastor Jim says, sometimes they compromise and shop at Bass Pro.
It was at this service that Pastor Jim did his Jaws impression - after that, they were "hooked".
