Pastor Jim has been married to Cheryl Staley since 1996 and has six daughters: Hannah, Sierra, Alayna, Meleah, Kylah, and Selah. For years, Jim was an evangelical Christian apologist in the St. Louis area, teaching Bible study classes as well as helping Christians learn to defend the Bible and evangelize. He then had a supernatural experience and introduction to understanding the Bible through the original authors’ mindset and those in the First Century Church.
Since 2007 he has dedicated his life to teaching others the same amazing life-changing truths that have transformed him and his family. Jim’s life’s desire is to help believers everywhere draw closer to the Father by understanding the truth of the scriptures from their original cultural context (a Hebraic perspective) and to apply them in faith for today. He has been featured on multiple Christian television networks throughout the country, is regularly spotlighted on WorldNet Daily, and his teachings and messages are heard daily and weekly on several radio stations around the country.

Jim Staley Sermon - Passion Points - The Garden Formula. From the Torah Portion B'resheet (Breisheet)
Sermon If My People by Jim Staley Sermon Ministries. How many times have you heard the statement, “It’s not about religion, it’s about a personal relationship?” Did you know that that statement is almost unbiblical? Our walk with The Father is definitely a relationship; however, it’s not a “personal” one only. YHVH (God) has a vision and a plan to change the world through his corporate people, Israel. Therefore, the enemy’s goal is to divide and conquer believers everywhere by getting them to focus on everything but what really matters. What better way to do that than to get us only focused on ourselves rather than fulfilling our role with the rest of the Body of Messiah?
Get ready for one of the most powerful and convicting messages you will ever hear as Pastor Jim dives into one of the most misunderstood verses in the Bible: 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
This teaching unpacks the power and full context behind that scripture and will leave you with the true road-map of how God can truly heal your land!
Pastor Jim Staley teaches on fasting and prayer. As Christians, we want to get back to the roots of our Faith. We want to get back to how Yeshua (Jesus) and the apostles lived and taught. That’s what this movement is all about!
We've embraced the Torah, feasts, and the Sabbath. And all of those things are great. But, generally speaking, Believers today are missing an important piece of the puzzle: Fasting. Indeed, fasting connects us to our Christian Roots in an amazing way. And along with prayer and knowing/doing the Word of God, it is the most powerful spiritual weapon that Believers have.
Join pastor Jim Staley as he speaks on the power of fasting. You'll learn what fasting is, why it's so important, and when and how we should do it. Pastor Jim also shares some insights that he has learned through his own experience with fasting and addresses several misunderstood scriptures. May you be blessed by this message!

Genesis 23 - Becoming the Bride - Jim follows the promptings of the Holy Spirit and teaches on Genesis 23. This message was presented at PFT Fellowship on 10-30-10.
This teaching series is one of the most comprehensive and in-depth teachings on the subject of giving in Christianity today. Pastor Jim Staley leaves no stone unturned as he delves into the scriptures to uncover what our Creator and Provider actually says about this deep topic.
In this teaching you will learn:
-What giving is and what the Bible says about money

-How to get the most out of your marriage and relationships
...And much, much more!
Is the Law really against Grace? For the past 1800 years most of us have been taught that the Old Testament was "all about Law" and the New Testament is "all about Love." We might have even been led to believe that it was by "works" that those in the Old Testament were saved, and today we are saved by grace. Join Pastor Jim Staley as he uses Scripture to dispel the idea that Jesus pits one against the other in this exciting teaching. You will see that God hasn't changed. He still defines love the same way that He did in the Old Testament: through obedience to His Word.
Torah Portion: Va'era "I appeared"- This teaching is a "Must watch" and has already been voted on by PFT members as a Top Ten teaching! Jim starts off and explains the tremendous significance between how the Father revealed Himself to the Patriarchs as El Shaddai and to Moses now as Yahweh. He then goes through the 7 "I will's" of chapter 6 and shows the incredible prophetic connection to the 7 thousand years of human history. The conclusion is striking!
Torah Portion: Shemini (Eighth) This is one of my favorite sections of scriptures in all the bible. Instead of speaking on what he had planned, the Holy Spirit at the last minute moved Jim to speak on Leviticus 9-11. This is a very Spirit-inspired message of how the anointing of the High Priest and the required holiness laws relate to us today as believers. If you have any kind of ongoing struggle with any kind of sin, this message will give you a fresh perspective on how to get rid of that sin once and for all and become all that you were meant to be in Messiah.
"As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man" --Matthew 24:37
Who are the "sons of God" discussed in Genesis 6? Where did the giants of old come from, and where did they go? Why did God need to flood the Earth? And how does this all fit into Biblical prophecy?
Pastor Jim Staley goes to great length using the scriptures, the writings of Josephus, and the extra-biblical books of antiquity to uncover exactly who the "sons of God" are, who the "Nephilim" are, and how it all relates to the End of Days. This teaching pulls together Greek mythology, the La Azazel goat of Yom Kippur, fallen angels, roaming evil spirits, and even aliens. Not only is this teaching on-the-edge-of-your-seat fascinating, but it is also based in scripture and riddled with historical facts.
In a culture where businesses are open 24 hours a day, fast food is a regular diet, and both spouses in most families are working around the clock just to make ends meet, a day of rest is not even on the radar for many Christian households. But because the Sabbath is number four in the Ten Commandments, it is more important than ever for us to finally answer some of the most imperative questions of our time:
Is the Biblical Sabbath Relevant for today?
Does God even care on which day we celebrate it?
Who changed the Sabbath day: God or man?
Doesn't the New Testament tell us that we don't have to keep it anymore?
If the seventh-day Sabbath is for today, how do we keep it in today's culture?
Will we be keeping the Sabbath during the millennium?
This teaching goes into great depth to answer those questions and more! Join Pastor Jim Staley as he leaves no stone unturned and challenges even the brightest Biblical students to take a second look at what The Bible calls, "The seal of His people."
