Jim attended Rhema Bible Training Center and graduated in 1988. Immediately following graduation he joined the Rhema Singers and Band and traveled extensively with Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin for nearly seven years; during the last several years he had the management responsibility for the Group.

He founded Jim Hockaday Ministries, Inc. in 1991, and now travels and ministers full time in churches at home and abroad.
