Jimmy’s background and training is in pastoral ministry and interpersonal leadership. Highlights of his career include: 1) Completing two years as a student, followed by a year as staff at Fort Myers Master’s Commission, an intense program that focuses on discipleship, ministry and leadership training, and 2) Graduating from North Central University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Studies with emphasis in Leadership.

Originally a Massachusetts native, Jimmy has also lived in Fort Myers, Florida, and presently resides in Burnsville, Minnesota. On October 19th, 2008, Jimmy married the woman of his dreams, Jessie. Together they serve faithfully at Celebration and are passionate about the adventures God has for them. On February 3rd, 2010, Jessie gave birth to their first child, James Eric Papia. Little Jimmy is a constant source of joy in their lives. Jimmy and Jessie’s favorite things include doing pretty much anything with their little boy.

Jimmy’s interests include cycling and weight training. Among his notable experiences, in 2004 he cycled from Portugal to Poland—over 2,800 miles—with a Venture Expeditions cycling team. As a result of their efforts, the cycling team was able to raise over $25,000 for Cry Africa, a project assisting aids victims in Uganda.
