James Mitchell

I’m James, a husband to the most beautiful woman in the world, a father to the most amazing little boy and most importantly a son to a good good Father.

We are currently living in Cairns, Australia. I work as a commercial pilot, flying all over the top end of North-East Australia and into PNG. I’ve seen some amazing things during my time flying and God’s goodness in his creation never ceases to amaze me.

I grew up in church knowing about God but never really knowing God. Through the trauma of my childhood, I believed lies about God that robbed me of intimacy and relationship with him. Then one day God found me in my desperation, picked me up and embraced me as a son. The fire was stoked inside of me and it’s been burning ever since.

Having experienced hell on earth as a child, it’s my heart’s desire to see people come to know the real God – a God who’s not angry with us, but is instead head over heels in love with us. His name is Jesus.

My wife is my backbone and my biggest encouragement. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for her in my life, as she continually challenges me to step up into the man God has created me to be. Thanks, babe!
