Jim has been married to Cheryl Kackley Staley since 1996 and has six daughters: Hannah, Sierra, Alayna, Meleah, Kylah, and Selah. For years, Jim was an evangelical Christian apologist in the St. Louis area, teaching Bible study classes as well as helping Christians learn to defend the Bible and evangelize. He then had a supernatural experience and introduction to understanding the Bible through the original authors’ mindset and those in the First Century Church.
Since 2007 he has dedicated his life to teaching others the same amazing life-changing truths that have transformed him and his family. Jim’s life’s desire is to help believers everywhere draw closer to the Father by understanding the truth of the scriptures from their original cultural context (a Hebraic perspective) and to apply them in faith for today. He has been featured on multiple Christian television networks throughout the country, and his teachings have been translated into many other languages, regularly reaching believers in countries all around the world!
