In obedience to God’s call, Prophet James gave up his professional career in music and dedicated each of his musical talents towards the Kingdom of God. He operates in worship and in the Office of the prophetic ministry; as well as teaching and preaching the word of the Lord. He directed the worship team’s musicians at his local church, Centro Cristiano Hosanna, located in Isabela, P.R. under the leadership of Apostles Mickey and Maggie Medina. For several years, he imparted into them the excellence of praise and worship. In his own words, he would say: "If I gave the world the best of myself in music, then now I will give to God nothing less than excellence! Praise and worship to the King MUST be extravagant and excellent!" Once James begins to play the piano and worship, the powerful anointing upon his life guides the people into God’s Presence, causing a hunger to see God’s Glory. James’ passion is to worship the King with excellence! And his heart’s desire is to equip the Saints in their prophetic call and activate the gift of speaking God’s heart to the body of Christ.
