jim and beverly smalley

Jim was born and raised in Miami, FL.

Shortly after graduation, Jim enlisted in the United States Army and served for 3 years. He married Beverly in 1989 and have been married for 25 years, now. Jim and Beverly moved to Cape Coral in 2003. Jim felt a call to ministry early in life but did not follow through at the time.

About 3 years ago the Lord re-ignited his call in Jim's life and Jim has been following that call ever since. He has earned his associate’s degree in theology from Christian Bible College in Rocky Mount, NC. He is also currently involved in the Leadership Initiative of the Church of God.

He is involved in most activities in the church including, teaching children’s church, singing in the worship team, and leading life groups. We are so happy to have added Jim as our new Senior Pastor in September of 2018.
