James Gaither was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee and called on Jesus Christ to be his personal savior at a young age. He attended Georgia Southern University where he majored in Economics. After college he began working in electrical sales. After a few years he felt he lacked purpose in his life. He began to pray about where God would have him serve and he went on a November Baseball trip with SCORE International. This trip changed his perspective on his career choice and he began Mobilizing for SCORE International. James wants others to be able to experience what he experienced in the Dominican Republic and wants to assist others in fulfilling the great commission. James has a passion for music and helps lead worship in two local churches. He also enjoys playing golf and is a member of the East Ridge Optimist Club.
