About James

James Boyd is a successful entrepreneur, pastor, church-health consultant, and author. He entered the business world immediately after graduating from high school, jumping with both feet into the auto industry, where for the next nine years he was literally sent around the world designing vehicles for major automakers. Recognized as a prodigy in the industry, James simultaneously earned his Bachelor of Science in Design Engineering degree while building effective teams of people that worked for him in Japan, California, Michigan, and other parts of the Midwest United States. Though a success by business standards, James was nagged by a continual sense of emptiness that all the money, connections, fame, and influence he was growing accustomed to could not fill. That’s when he made the decision to move from Los Angeles back to his home state of Michigan to seek his purpose outside the successful life that he’d built for himself.

James began serving at his local church and attended its Bible school, where the Word of God quickly filled the emptiness that he’d experienced for nearly a decade. But he soon experienced something new as well, and that something was a call to ministry. James Boyd now holds both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in theology from Life Christian University and has helped numerous churches in their pursuit of bringing health and a systematic approach to ministry. He owns multiple businesses that allow him to stay sharp in the business world and church world at the same time. His life experiences and background in business are an asset to pastors and ministry leaders who did not receive this essential training.James and his wife, Tracy, serve as the lead pastors at Grow Church in Naples, Florida, and are the parents of three amazing adult daughters.
