Jim Humphreys graduated from Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music, in Michigan, in 1978 after receiving the top award for musical achievement. In March of 1979 he began his ministry as the Youth Director for Santa Rosa Bible Church, with an emphasis on their musical development. Jim became the Minister of Music & Christian Education for SRBC in 1982. In the fall of 1984, the church dropped the Christian Education title and invited Jim to begin working part time with the secondary music at Rincon Valley Christian School. He has been full time with the school since 1990. His duties have involved 4th through 12th grade instrumental and choral music. For the past 9 years, he has been able to concentrate on the secondary music development and his own musical writing and arranging skills. Jim's vocal and instrumental groups have consistently gained superior and command performance ratings since joining RVCS on both the Middle School and Senior High levels. He is currently the chairman for the Visual and Performing Arts at RVCS and oversees all grade levels in these areas. In January of 2012, he joined the staff of Crosspoint Community Church as their Director of Worship Ministries.
