|James Goforth, an ordained minister of the Gospel, is a passionate songwriter, incredible guitarist, and worship leader.
He has a passion to write and communicate inspiring and
uplifting spiritually worshipful songs that point to a
relationship with Jesus. His songs take you on a soaring
journey from praise and worship to prayerful ballads and
strong guitar-driven rock with a dab of blues.
Music has taken James all over the world--from Mission trips to Romania, to touring with The Continentals to leading praise and worship and presenting concerts all over the state of Texas.
His ministry has taken him to New York City, Nashville, Arkansas and the Carolinas.
James established Cross Strings Ministry in 2000.
He is married to Susan and they have one daughter, Selah Grace, born in December, 2006.
Presently, they make their home in DeSoto, Texas.
In October 2001, he went on a mission trip to New York City. Following the September 11 tragedy, a group from
Rush Creek Community Church in Arlington, Texas, traveled to NYC to assist a newly formed church in outreach and worship. James saw firsthand the devastation caused by the fall of the World Trade Towers, but more especially the anguish of the people. Prayer walking the streets around Central Park, passing out tracts and inviting people to the church, THE JOURNEY, had special meaning... "I was inspired to write the song Without You, as a result of my experiences in New York City, and the airplane flight home.”
He has been a blessing to all who have heard and seen him live, and to those who have listened to his anointed music, either on the radio, CD, tape or video.
James specializes in working with, organizing and critiquing Praise Teams/Bands. In churches that have praise teams and bands, he works to prepare them to lead in his pre-concert praise and worship time. He is available to churches desiring to begin contemporary praise and worship services or to assist those who already have a praise team/band.
James also gives private guitar lessons in his studio, Living Waters.
