My name is James Nored. I have been married to my lovely wife, Becki, for seventeen years, and I have three lovely daughters-Gina (11), Emily (8), and our newborn, Kaylee. I have a passion for mission, preaching, outreach, connecting to postmodern culture, Spiritual gifts, and ministering to people--as well as Dallas-based sports teams!
I am the minister at the Grapevine Church of Christ in Grapevine, TX, a suburb of Dallas/Fort Worth. I completed my Doctor of Ministry at Fuller Theologial Seminary in Pasadena, CA. I have studied there with incredible missional leaders.
I like starting new ministries, such as this website, which is designed to bring together people across the world who have a passion for mission. I give Missional Church and Spiritual gifts seminars around the country, and I enjoy writing and developing missional resources. Some of my sites include: www.storyofredemption.com and www.YourSpiritualGifts.com.
