Jim’s early career included several successful enterprises in the restaurant industry, insurance and sales. Jim and Kathy Sullivan took their first Crown study shortly after they were married in 1990. They were greatly impacted to dedicate their vocational lives to further this ministry, and made a dramatic change in their career paths. God placed in their heart a passion to further this ministry and Jim came on staff as a Regional Director in 1993 covering 5 western states. At that time there were about 22 churches using Crown in the region. Under Jim’s leadership hundreds were served, including Korean and Hispanic speaking congregations. Jim and Kathy work as a team effectively interacting with, identifying and recruiting leadership and ministry partners, and developing new alliances and programs. They live in Mission Viejo, California with their daughter, Desiree, and are members of Saddleback church.
