Born and raised in Illinois, James grew up in a Christian home but rejected God for years. During his freshman year of college, God brought James to see and understand his sinfulness and God’s Holiness, ultimately leading to faith in Jesus as Savior.
After graduating with a Bachelors in Church Ministries, James and Natalie (a Hoosier from Muncie), left their college home in Wisconsin and moved to Pennsylvania for graduate school. Upon completing a Master of Divinity Degree, the Proctors moved to the Baltimore area where James served as an Associate Pastor. In 2002, the Proctors came to Muncie, where James served as an Outreach Director, then to Winchester as a Senior Pastor, and then into an itinerant preaching ministry.
Calvary called James to shepherd the congregation in 2009. He absolutely loves serving Christ and the Church and living in Anderson.
