After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Grace College (IN), Dr. Colman completed his Master’s and PhD in Music Education at Michigan State University. His training in the music arts led him to Cedarville University where he moved from music faculty into university leadership. After 14 years with Cedarville, Colman accepted senior leadership positions in Academic Affairs at Oklahoma Baptist University, and Charleston Southern University, before becoming the President at Jupiter Christian School (JCS) in Jupiter, Florida. In 2016, Jim joined the LCM team as CEO of LCS’s parent organization, Lenawee Christian Ministries.
“Over the past three decades, God has provided a wealth of experiences to shape me for this role at Lenawee Christian Ministries,” Dr. Colman said. “My wife, Becky and I are excited and honored to serve the Lenawee County community by joining the great work that is in progress at the Christian Family Centre and Lenawee Christian School.” Dr. Colman and his wife have two children, Kristin and Michael. Jim loves composing and arranging music, auctions, and spending time with his grandchildren.
