Jim stays very committed to his family and involved with his church. He, along with his wife Cara, teach small groups together and enjoy travelling. Jim and Cara have two children, Tiernan and Lauren. Tiernan and his wife, Jordan, live locally and Lauren lives in Washington DC where she is currently student teaching. When he’s not in the company of others, learning and reading are two things Jim is passionate about, specifically bible education. And like a good husband, Jim is a big fan of his wife’s cooking.
