Jim Stortenbecker is a graduate of North Penn High School in Lansdale, Pa. where he currently resides with his wife of 42 years. He has three children and nine grandchildren. He is also a graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in business and management. Jim Stortenbecker retired from the US Army in 1985 after 21 years of honorable service. He is extremely active in his church as an usher, a member of the church worship team and operator of the book and tape store. He is a singer and musician and dedicated to bringing about a change in the Christian faith through Christian unity and through his ministry, Turning The Tides and his web page, truetides.com, both of which are currently in the development stage. Jim has had several Christian related articles published in the local newspaper. His book, Christian Wake Up Call, is a call he received from God for Christians to put aside their denominational differences and unite to solidify the Christian faith and our relationship with the Trinity. We are facing the end times and God is sending the Christian community a wake up call. Jim has addressed this in his book with an urgent plea for unification.
