Differentiation in Band Camp

I recently invited James Divine to my school to talk to my students. He talked about his old beat-up saxophone, how even though it is scratched, dented, bent and painted gray in parts, it still sounds great and does its job well. James then related how he has been through some tough times in his life, and although those events have left dents and scratches on him, he can still look ahead to a bright future. James captured the attention of the students with his humor and seriousness, and kept their attention throughout the presentation. As I talked with the students over the next few days, many of them were still talking about the impact he had on them. Thank you James for reaching out to my students and making a difference in their lives! Frank Meacham Director of Band and Choir Sierra High School

We enjoyed having James here at Pueblo First Nazarene. His presentation was wonderful and he was received well. As a Pastor, I always seek ways of ministering to the masses and music is one of those ways. Bringing James Divine here to PFC was a real blessing. I pastor a church with lots of tradition but have been going through some growing pains with many new younger families. James' music reached everyone and I have had nothing but positive comments. Thank you for coming.

It was a wonderful ministry and well received and James would be very much welcome to come back on a regular basis. I couldn't say what they enjoyed the most as his music, his manner, and his testimony were truly inspiring.

James Divine was a breath of fresh air. I appreciated the variety of music and his humble spirit.
