Jim joined Embrace originally as a Board Member in 2006 and has recently returned to serve another term. He has rejoined Embrace because it continues to mesh with his interests of helping people help themselves. In addition, his most current mission-related activities include occasional backup support for programs including church overseas missions, Richmond Friends of the Homeless, CARITAS, Hillside Court and Gilpin Court. Jim started his career in the Paper Industry until 1997 when he became Director, Owner and Treasurer of Sharing Life, Inc., an adult day care facility. Jim has also served as Mission Team Chairperson, and as a member of the Church Council.
