Pastor James was born in Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa. He came to the United States in 1988, and settled in Worcester Ma in 1989. He came to know the Lord in September 1993, and immediately knew there was a calling on his life to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

During the next seven years his life took many turns, all in prepartion for his ministry. He served faithfully under his pastor, got married, welcomed a new baby girl, and graduated from Bible School. He was ordained in September 2000, and in October 2000, as the Lord led him, he founded New Arising Christian Church.

Starting with only six members, Pastor James has trusted and believed the Lord's call on his life, obediently serving with a pure heart. Today, New Arising Christian Church is home to many families, from a variety of countries, and we continue to grow.
