James W. Goll is a lover of Jesus who cofounded Encounters Network, an organization dedicated to changing lives and impacting nations by releasing God's presence through prophetic, intercessory, and compassionate ministry. He is the founder of the God Encounters Training E-School of the Heart -- "where faith and life meet." He is also International Director of Prayer Storm, a 24/7/365 media-based house of prayer.
After serving as a pastor in the Midwest, James was thrust into the role of international itinerant teacher and trainer. He has traveled extensively in over fifty nations, carrying a passion for Jesus wherever he goes. James desires to see the body of Christ become the "house of prayer for all nations" (see Isaiah 56:7) and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to spread the good news to every nation and all peoples.
James is a member of the Harvest International Ministry Apostolic Team and a consultant to several national and international ministries. He is also the author of numerous books and training manuals, as well as a contributing writer for several periodicals.
James and Michal Ann Goll were married for thirty-two years before her graduation to heaven in the fall of 2008. They have four wonderful adult children, all of whom are married, and two grandchildren. James makes his home in Franklin, Tennessee.
