James Rose
James Rose Director of Operations

James attended Arthur Elementary School in south Oklahoma City. His teachers were quite impressed with his knowledge of bugs, planets and stars, but slightly less so with his physical coordination. 


Around the age of 16, James and Cathy started dating, and Cathy dragged him to Capitol Hill Baptist Church. After several years, James and Cathy began teaching a 5th grade Sunday School class. Cathy did very well, and the children loved her. Eventually, James and Cathy left the 5th grade and began working with the 2-year-olds. James was warned several times to stop tying the kids’ shoes together.


After James and Cathy were married, (fortunately) they had two sons, Zach and Geoff Rose. Zach lives in Oklahoma City with his wife, Carole and daughter, Emma. Geoff lives in St. Louis with his wife, Amanda. Despite repeated demands from James and Cathy, Geoff and Amanda have, so far, not provided grandchildren.


James is often at Jubilee when he’s not working at Acts 2. Jubilee is an afterschool program for at-risk, inner city kids. They provide tutoring and life skills that the kids would not receive otherwise. James volunteers in maintenance, teaching, mentoring and accounting. James has been warned several times to stop tying the kids’ shoes together. 


As Acts 2 members, James and Cathy continue to work with children and youth. Cathy does very well and the kids love her.


After retiring from an exciting insurance job, James began thinking about more about ministry and asking God what He had planned for the rest of his life.  When a position at Acts 2 became available, James accepted.
