Meet Jamie – Worship Leader / Pastor / Songwriter:
Jamie grew up in Fullerton, California, and was introduced to Christ a few months before his fifteenth birthday in 1975. Since the age of 19, professional music drew him from the West Coast to eventually marry Brenda Ramsey in Mobile, Alabama, in 1985. Four years later, he graduated with honors from the University of Mobile with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion and Music.
As an exclusive songwriter with the worship company Integrity Music, Jamie wrote several popular worship songs, including “Ancient of Days,” “Because We Believe,” “Firm Foundation,” and “Garments of Praise.” He has authored two books: Worship Foundry and To Jesus We Sing.
In addition to tenure as a conference teacher, songwriter, and serving local churches, Jamie felt compelled to teach worship in an academic setting. He earned a Master of Arts degree and a Doctorate in Worship Studies (D.W.S.) at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Brenda and Jamie have two married children and five amazing grandchildren. After several years away, they moved back to Mobile, where Jamie continues to write songs, play guitar, teach, blog, and mentor. He serves as an associate pastor and worship leader at Bayou Sara Baptist Church, a thriving congregation near Alabama’s beautiful Gulf Coast.
