Jim and his wife, Susan, live 9 miles north of Lewisburg on Rt. 219 off I-64 at Frankford (which was one of West Virginia’s first settlements in the Greenbrier Valley) on Noah’s Ark Farm where they are still trying to figure out how to make money farming while also enjoying vegetable and flower gardening.   They are the proud parents of 2 daughters, Scarlett Anderson Dunn of Panama City Beach, Florida, Chelsea Jo Clarkson of Gap Mills, WV,  1 son, Glenn Harrison Anderson of Phoenix, AZ and 2 wonderful grandsons, Judd Porter and Macray Harris Clarkson.

Jim is available for preaching, singing, Christian coaching, evangelical revivals, pastoral pulpit and search committee consultation, Christian conflict resolution, and discipleship workshop ministries in these and any WVBC church as his schedule will allow.

“Born and raised in West Virginia (my father was a retired WVBC minister for whom the James Anderson Sr Bivocational Pastor Award given annually at the Annual Meeting is named), and celebrating over 40 years of being called to preach the Word, I am committed through our WV Baptist Convention family to seeing and helping people not only come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, but to experience an on-going life changing relationship with Him by the grace of God through the power and direction of the Holy Spirit.”
