Jim is the Founder of Griffith Coaching.

He began his ministry by starting new churches for the purpose of reaching new people.  He started five new churches in Florida, North Carolina, and Denver.

Since then, he, and his network of associates, have assessed over nineteen hundred church planting candidates, trained thousands of planters, and coached hundreds of new churches.


Leveraging that experience, Griffith Coaching focuses on training and coaching churches of all ages in their efforts to reach the mission field around them.

Jim works with many organizations, from the Pentecostals to the Anglicans, and all tribes in-between.

His vast experiences and intuitive skills have contributed to Jim becoming the church leader's "Advocate;" a mantle he wears with infectious enthusiasm.

He graduated from The University of Florida and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Jim lives in Orlando, Florida and is married to Kim Griffith, a United Methodist Minister.  Between them they have seven children.
