James Shelton is no stranger to the miracle working power of Jesus Christ. He was born on December 16, 1980, along with his twin brother. James was born two and a half months premature. He only weighed 3 pound and 3 ounces. He was also born with a hole in his heart. Doctors needed to operate, but they feared that James might not make it or that he would suffer extreme, long-term complications.
James’ father got down on his knees and asked God for a miracle. Praise be to Jesus, God answered his prayers. The hole closed up all by itself and James Shelton was a miracle. As he grew older, he felt a strong calling on his life to change the world and make a difference.
In 1999, he left for Tulsa, OK, to go into training and then full time ministry at Eastman Curtis Ministries where he served for two years as an intern in an apprentice program.
During those two years, James also traveled around the United States helping Eastman Curtis with large youth crusades, evangelistic meetings in local churches called Team X, and also co-hosting Eastman’s television show called “This Generation.” In 2001, James Shelton was ordained and brought on staff at Destiny Church as full-time Children’s Pastor. He faithfully served as Children’s Pastor and Assistant Youth Minister for one and a half years.
In 2003, James Shelton became a professional actor and standup comedian. After much success through comedy clubs, television commercials, independent films, and improve groups, he walked away from all of it because God was calling him to pastor and evangelize this up and coming generation.
In 2004, James Shelton was ordained as Youth Pastor of Living Waters Worship Center through Kingsway Fellowship. He has faithfully served there for five years.
In the fall of 2005 he launched James Shelton Ministries as a traveling evangelist and missionary. James Shelton has spoken in front of countless teenagers, church congregations, as well as conducting prison ministry meetings in juvenile facilities. His ministry abroad also includes a mission trip to Honduras and holding a weeklong revival meeting in Haiti.
In 2010 James Shelton launched the Theatrical Production “Satan in the Flesh” designed as a city wide outreach to win souls and awaken the body of Christ. That same year God also opened up a door for James Shelton to speak to young people in schools encouraging students to focus on their education and abstain from sex. In the fall of 2010 James Shelton was ordained through Calvary Ministries International as the Pastoral Overseer of Youth Ministries. James Shelton is a firm believer that we can change our world one person at a time.
