Meet Our Pastor
Bishop James R. Woodson, II
Senior Pastor, St. James Home of Fresh Start, Greensboro, NC
Bishop Woodson’s familiarity with church culture comes from his upbringing in Danville, VA, under his grandmother the late Ruby G. Woodson, who is also the founder of his present ministry in Greensboro, NC. Dr. Woodson often states that “he was born in church before he was born again.” This led him to seek more clarity and pathos of the Christian church by furthering his upbringing and education by attending Virginia University, Lynchburg, VA where he received a BS in psychology. He further desired to create the handling of the Word of God with precision as well as understanding, so he continued his education by receiving a Doctor of Ministry with an emphasis on Evangelism from New Hope Seminary and Bible College, Baltimore, MD.
As a traveling evangelist, preaching has opened many doors in many reformations. Denominations have never been a hindrance to Dr. Woodson’s broad proclamations of the gospel. To his credit, Bishop Woodson is the author of four soon to be released books, Rubies from Ruby, The Guilt of Enjoyment, And God Rested and Pictures on a Pillow.
Dr. Woodson is married to the former Mable Shaw and is father to Meco, Jacob, Christianna and Krysta.
