|In 1968 Jim and Karen began their ministry together in Walnut Creek California. Since then they have pastored five churches in Northern California as well as serving on staff at four Assemblies of God churches. They have pioneered two churches in California as well as one in Sierra Leone, West Africa where they served as Assemblies of God missionaries. The Booth’s have two children, and six grandchildren. Some of the grandchildren are on the west coast and two are here in Virginia. After a brief retirement Jim and Karen accepted the invitation to be the pastors of Faith Fellowship in Bedford.
“This is one of the most exciting and rewarding times of our lives”, Jim has stated many times. They are looking forward to spending many, many years here in Bedford, should the Lord tarry.
