James came to Covenant with his family around 1976, and attended youth programs and completed Confirmation here. While operating a “follow-spot” for a Christmas Youth program at Covenant, he was asked if he’d be interested in operating the sound and lights for Sunday services for a one-year term until someone else could be found. A high school student at the time, he agreed to do it for a year. Needless to say, over thirty years later, James is still here as apparently no one else has yet been found to take over! (Although James is still patiently waiting for his replacement...)
James attended Cal State Fullerton and received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Engineering, and today runs an electrical engineering firm specializing in industrial power systems. James is involved in many projects around Covenant, especially those dealing with lighting, sound, electrical, and technology.
