Elisha St. James (elishastjames.com)

Music feeds the soul and few people understand its power better than Elisha St. James. His young life has been a rollercoaster ride and music has been his constant companion. Music has shaped his life, providing a sense of purpose and direction, even in the most trying times. Elisha St. James accepted the Lord Jesus Christ at the age of 9, and in 2002 Elisha studied psychology in college but soon realized the Lord had different plans for his life. His oldest brother and spiritual mentor, Eddie James, took him under his wings and opened his spiritual eyes to something Elisha never knew existed—life in Jesus. Elisha St. James won’t just meet your ministry needs but exceed them. This will be a powerful worship and arts ministry that truly needs to be experienced!
