James Taylor - Senior Pastor
James was born and raised here in Richland County and a graduate of Crestview High School and Pioneer Career & Technology Center. James decided to leave a career in the auto industry and pursue ministry because he believes the local church is designed to be the pillar of the community and be a shining light to all people. He has spent the last ten years in various ministry roles within the Christian and Missionary Alliance and currently serves as lead pastor here at Shelby Alliance. He is married to Cassie, and they have two kids Reagann (4) and Josiah (1). In his free time, James enjoys racing motocross, summer nights at Attica Raceway, grilling, watching Buckeye football, and hiking with his family.
