“James Werner not only has a compelling message, he’s one of the best presenters to come through the Cross-Examined Instructor Academy. He’ll get your attention and may just give you a new perspective on some of life’s most important questions.”
“As one who has known James Werner for all of his life, it is a thrill to see my brother in Christ being moved and directed by the Holy Spirit to open his heart and devote a great deal of time in service to the glory and honor of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. His ministry to God’s people and the world is possible because James has been a beautiful “…example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12). It is truly a privilege to be able to encourage him to move forward boldly in this ministry.”
“It is a real privilege for me to endorse a fellow minister that I have known all of his life. James Werner and my oldest daughter were born seven days apart. I feel like a father to him and he has never been a stranger in our home. James and Tina asked me to minister at their wedding in 1989.
James is a gifted teacher and speaker and has been used in the ministry of the Lord for many years. There is seldom a dry eye when James shares the testimony of his oldest daughter’s death at 10 years of age. He also knew some of the victims of the San Bernardino mass shooting personally. James uses these and other life’s experiences effectively in his ministry and gives a message of hope in Jesus Christ.”
