Jim Needham has been involved in various ministries here on the home front for the last several years. It wasn’t until after his retirement in 2017 did he sense the Lord doing a totally new work in his heart leading him out into the mission field. While on short-term mission trips to Haiti, the Lord started teaching Jim through His Word (Isaiah 49:6) and “real life” encounters that His love, forgiveness and grace is for all people – in all nations. While in South Asia, Jim was blessed to be able to make friendships with several national SGWM pastors and their family members. Currently Jim teaches online English classes to SGWM Bible College students in South Asia as well as refugee families in Orange County. Jim spends time with his three children and six grandchildren while continuing to serve the Lord in any capacity the Lord leads him here and out into the mission field.
