James McCartney

..::Origins
I was born in Atlantic City, NJ in 1968. I was born-again as a kid in a backyard Bible club around 1975.

..::Family Life 
I currently live with my beautiful wife and best friend (Erin), our two biological sons, Lukas and Nathaniel, and our two adopted (from Ethiopia) children, Jayne Mihret and Isaac Eyasu. We share our home with our faithful partner (Ripley – an adopted lab/border collie). I am also the identical twin son of James Sr. and Patricia, brother to Scott and Colleen.

..::Things I Can’t Live Without
My family, Diet Pepsi, Hershey’s chocolate, jazz, a comfortable chair, movies, great books, and a good God!

..::I Hope To Someday …
See every person at Mission Point Church loving and serving God, write a book, teach in a college/seminary, build and pastor a church of thousands, travel widely, own an R.V., spend significant time in Africa, be happy with my weight, and have great friends to grow old and sit on park benches with!

..::If I Were In Charge Of Heaven
I would throw a special party for anyone that has ever been abused at the hands of another. I would make sure that each one would know the tender and appropriate touch of the loving Savior, Jesus.

..::What I’d Like To Say To The People Of Mission Point Church 
Get connected to Christ and get committed in His church!  Share and show your faith.  Life is too short, the need is too great, and the blessing is too wonderful!
