He was hired by the United States Postal Service as a driver. He worked hard and later became a Transportation Supervisor when he retired with 24 years 5 month of service.

James joined Vine Memorial on April 21, 2013. From the time he walked down the aisle to give his hand to Pastor Allen and heart to Jesus Christ, he let his presence be known at Vine.
