Pastor Rainwater leads our team and staff at Bethany Church and enjoys teaching Scripture for life-change, training and equipping leaders, and leading a church with the faith to ask God for big things.
"I did not grow up in an active Christian home," James says. "This has marked me with a deep appreciation of the Lord's power to transform lives and families. When Jesus steps in, nothing should be the same."
Having been born and raised in Arkansas, James has spent a combined twenty-one years in pastoral ministry in Oklahoma. He received his Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership from Crown College in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota.
James' wife Aimee, is a 3rd grade teacher in Thomas and also serves in children's ministries at Bethany Church. They have three children, Charish, Caleb and Noah.
