Jim Stern

For almost a decade I have been connected to Jim and Pat Harris.  They are two faithful servants that exemplify dedication to the call of God to go and preach the gospel to the nations of the earth.  I have a great deal of respect and admiration for both of them.

Relevant Expeditions has been a blessing to partner with. It is always a privilege to be part of the Relevant family; whether it’s sending a short-term team to Cambodia, partnering together to feed a leper village in India, or joining together in prayer as Jim ministers in Tibet.  This is a ministry that changes lives!

My personal experience with Jim is that he does what he says he’s going to do. There has never been an experience where less was delivered than promised, nor has there been anything that hints at a lack of integrity in this ministry. In fact, there’s usually a greater impact than you thought was possible, more lives transformed than you prayed for, and the dollar stretched farther than you thought it could go!

Destiny Church has continued to financially support Jim & Pat even through seasons of our church budget being tight. We believe Relevant Expeditions is a quality Kingdom investment that has produced nothing but great fruit year after year.   They have a proven track record of success in ministry!

I would encourage you to partner with Jim and Pat Harris, as they will bless your life just as they have blessed so many around the world!

They are people with a mission and purpose in their life…

We have been associated with Jim and Pat Harris for the past several years. When we met them for the first time, there was a deep awareness that these were people with a mission and purpose in their life. There was an obvious connection that we made from the very beginning and as we got to know them the things we perceived at the beginning were not only what we thought they were, but even deeper.

Jim is a servant with character, passion and purpose. I have spent time with this man in my office, on our knees as well as on the mission field and what I can say in all honesty is, he is the real deal. You have seen him in pictures working hard and this is exactly what he does.

If its on a long hard trip or behind the pulpit, he is working hard. The word of God says that we will know people by the fruit they bear. Jim is bearing fruit everywhere he goes. It is our honor to be associated with Jim and Pat.

It is a joy to be a spiritual covering to such dedicated people. Not only do we support them, we encourage you to do the same as these people are good soil.
