He served God faithfully at his home church under the watchful eye of Dr. Louise J Lyas in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. After the family moved to Texas he served in excellence and with passion under the with his mother. He has served God from that day he made his confession of faith, until he opened his eyes in glory. James loved all things media, sound, technology oriented, he was a perfectionist regarding the ministry of audio and sound. He would always tell his mother, "it does no good for preachers to preach , if no one can understand what they are saying". James loved supporting and working with his mother in ministry and life." March 1992 James became a big brother and met his best friend for life. He wanted to make sure his brother always knew he had his back.

From the time Joshua was born until the last breath in his body, he spent his life making sure his brother knew he was loved and he believed in him.
