Jim Heinze Ministries


In 1977 Jim and his wife Linda came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Their friends were becoming committed Christians and, of course, in their excitement and zeal began sharing with them what a personal relationship with God meant. After many months of fighting them off they finally went to a home bible study. It was there that they heard for the first time about the love that God Himself has for us. He loved us so much that He sent His son, Jesus, to invite us to know Him! That night after the bible study in the quiet of his van, Jim gave his heart to the Lord. That very night the Lord delivered Jim from his violent temper, drug use, getting drunk, offensive language and his idol of music. Jim had been playing music in the Sacramento area for several years. God is still at work today transforming Jim’s life to conform him to the image of His son.  With their new Christian friends they helped to start a “house church” and ministered there for eight years. In 1985 Jim quit his job with the government, they sold their house, gave away most of their possessions and entered into the ministry. Together with their 3 children they moved to Brookings, Oregon to work with a ministry called Pacific Praise Ministries. They were responsible to put together gospel concerts. A year later they returned to Sacramento, California and Jim became the worship leader and Associate Pastor at a church in Woodland, California.


In 1987 Jim and Linda made their first trip to Great Britain to minister the word of God in song and speaking. Many doors of ministry were opened to them and they quickly became involved in traveling the entire country. They were able to minister in various denominations of churches, prisons, Full Gospel Businessmen’s meetings, house churches, hospitals, and various outreaches. They traveled and ministered throughout England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland until 2002.


In 1989 they became members of New Hope Christian Fellowship, a non-denominational church in the Sacramento area. Jim soon became a member of the New Hope Worship Ministry. New Hope became their “home church” as they continued to minister throughout the body of Christ. In 2002 Jim came on staff as a Pastor and the Worship Leader of New Hope Christian Fellowship.


Jim currently lives in Sacramento, California. He has 3 children, Tana, Jamie, and Joshua and son in laws, Chris and Mike and two wonderful grandsons, Jack and Ivan James.

On August 23, 2014 Jim’s wife and ministry partner Linda left this earthly home to be with the Savior that she loved and worshiped.  She will be missed but the reunion will be glorious!
