JIM’S STORY

Jim Graff is a respected pastor, leader and author who loves HELPING PEOPLE WIN. For over 29 years, Jim has pastored Faith Family Church, a vibrant, life-giving church in Victoria, Texas. Under his leadership, it has grown from 300 to 4,000 people in a city of only 60,000. His community recently voted him the second most influential person in their thirteen-county area.

Jim loves pastors. He enjoys connecting with and coaching pastors both in life and in ministry. He does this through the Significant Church Network—an organization he founded with his friends to develop thriving, significant churches in America’s smaller, overlooked cities and communities. Together, they are working to create church planting movements among the unreached people groups of the world as well.

He enjoys sports and outdoors and exploring cities and towns with his wife Tamara. Together, they have raised four children — Michael, Andrea, Emily and Geoffrey– who all love God and are serving His purposes.

TAMARA’S STORY

Tamara Graff is a gal who loves God, loves people, and loves life. Her compassion for people, and rich heritage of faith have helped her to become a dynamic Bible teacher and women’s speaker.

She loves motivating and mentoring women to embrace their uniqueness and bring influence to their world. Tamara is a missionary at heart and has a passion for the unreached. Her greatest joy this past decade, has been working under her husband’s leadership and alongside her church family to build and develop the House of Palms campus in MP India– a home where 130 children have been rescued from sex slavery and are being cared for, discipled and educated to become successful Christian leaders.

Tamara has been married to Jim, the love of her life- for 32 years and has pastored alongside him for over 30.   Together they’ve raised four wonderful children.  Tamara enjoys spending time with her family and friends, sipping lattes and traveling the world with her hubby.
