Jim Preston grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, where he received Jesus as his Savior at the age of six. In 1996, he graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a bachelors degree in Computer Engineering, and began working as a software engineer. In 2003, after serving for several years in their local church, Jim and his family moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma so he could attend RHEMA Bible Training College and prepare for full-time ministry. He graduated in May 2006 with a certification in Pastoral Ministry.


In June 2006, Jim and his family relocated to Andover, Massachusetts, to start Andover Christian Center. It is Jim’s desire to see the life-changing truth of God’s Word impact people’s everyday lives.


Jim and his wife Shelly have been married 19 years and have four children.
