About Jim

Dr. Jim Kaseman

AFCM Founder. President of AFCM Canada.

Dr. Julius “Jim” Kaseman is a graduate of the 1975 charter class of RHEMA Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. He holds credentials with RHEMA Ministerial Association International and the Association of Faith Churches and Ministers International and is a member of the Fellowship of Inner-City Word of Faith Ministries.

Jim graduated from Minot State University, Minot, North Dakota in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. In July of 1994, an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree was conferred upon Jim by Dr. R.E. Anderson from the School of Bible Theology in San Jacinto, California.

Jim entered full-time ministry in 1975 when he accepted the invitation to pastor a church in Minnesota. A year later he was called to the traveling/teaching ministry. As a result, Jim Kaseman Ministries was founded and became instrumental in establishing churches in Minnesota and the surrounding area.

In 1978, Jim founded the Association of Faith Churches and Ministers International (AFCM) to promote fellowship among the ministers who shared his vision of taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.

In addition to his responsibilities with AFCM, Jim ministers throughout the year in churches, conventions, and Bible schools. Having seen in his own life the transforming power of the Word of God, his desire is for every believer to live a victorious Christian life.

Jim and his wife, Kathleen were saved on the same day in April 1972 and served together in ministry for almost 50 years. Kathleen went home to heaven in May 2022. They are the parents of five grown children, grandparents of eleven, and great-grandparents to eight. Jim continues to reside in their home in Ocala, FL.
