An Encouraging Word
Meet Chaplain James discipling in Covington
Chaplain James Duncan
James was an atheist.
At the age of 30, however, he experienced a radical conversion.
“I heard His voice,” he said. “I was baptized in the Holy Spirit a couple of years later.
James, now 44, found himself coming out of the corporate sales world to work in homeless ministry in Covington. Through a partnership with Urban Outreach, James works at the Lord’s Gym in Covington.
James said he enjoys having the opportunity to lead someone to Christ.
“Other than that, I love it when someone ‘gets it’ to the point they make difficult, sacrificial choices to honor God,” he said.
According to James, working in ministry has made him a better person.
“Although I still have plenty of issues the Lord is working on, I'm less selfish than I used to be,” he said. “Also, most of the negative things that come up in daily life tend to not bother me as much as they used to – this type of ministry has a way of putting things in perspective.”
James said his purpose is to “love the homeless in Covington, disciple them, and help them become all that the Lord would have them be.”
