Every member of our team shares a vision for the heart, character and educational achievement of Shelterwood students.

We have a dynamic team of professionals. This team lays the firm foundation for us to partner with teens and their families on the path to healing. Shelterwood teens are surrounded by remarkable young adult role models at all times in every setting, offering a community driven approach to treatment. Professionals with top credentials lead our counseling, therapeutic and educational efforts. Caring adults also interact regularly with our students, pursue relationships, counsel and encourage . . . no matter what.

He came to Christ in his late 20’s during a family weekend when his brother was at Shelterwood in the early days of the ministry. Richard Beach lived with Jim and his family when our current campus was first acquired and launched. Jim was actively involved in Richard Beach’s Sky’s the Limit inner city camp in Kansas City for two years and has spent most of his career serving Jesus in some capacity. Jim’s daughter was a mentor at Shelterwood, which led to her career as an addiction counselor.

Jim is a well-respected ministry and business leader with a long track record of success. Most recently, Jim was CEO of Behind the Walls, Bill Glass evangelism training and prison ministry in Texas since 2012. Jim also has over 20 years of healthcare experience in physician practice management and medical sales. He is an ordained minister and spent two years on staff at Grace Community Church in Arlington, Texas as Director of Men’s Ministry.

Jim and his wife Sue have been married for forty years. They have four children and five grandchildren. Jim is a graduate of Kansas University, and they have deep ties to Kansas City and to the Shelterwood community, including a vast network of ministry and business relationships.
