Jim Stump | Class of '62jimstump.jpg

In order to start his first year at King's School, Jim Stump didn't just come from the neighborhood school; instead, he came down from a small Alaskan village, the place he'd called home while his parents served as missionaries in the secluded area. Just like his parents before him, Jim has given his life to encouraging others to delve into a relationship with Christ. But Jim's means of spreading the gospel didn't take him back to Alaska; his journey started with sports.

Jim jumped right into an active sports life after he arrived at King's, lending his talents to the football team as quarterback and middle linebacker, team captain and shortstop on the baseball diamond, and a year on the basketball team. Not one to stick solely to sports, Jim also sang in the schools' choir and quartet as a means to exercise his musical muscles. He also stayed busy at King's as an active member of the school body. He served as class president as well as student body president during his high school years. This all set him up for the post-high school path on which God was taking him.

After graduating, Jim played four sports at Wheaton College. There, he created relationships with coaches and athletes of faith. After graduating in 1966, he joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. The organization sent him to England to help pilot their European ministry and he spent two years at Reading University sharing his faith and mentoring students. During his time with Campus Crusades, he aided in setting up their Athletes in Action program with the European Olympic Committee and then came back to the states to head up the ministry at Stanford University. After four years as Campus Director at Stanford, Jim started Sports Challenge, a non-profit aimed at mentoring athletes. For the past 40 years, Jim has continued faithfully with Sports Challenge, meeting, encouraging, and mentoring 30-35 athletes each week as they grow into personal relationships with Christ.

Though Jim's career and ministry has taken him around the world, he still looks back fondly on his time at King's. Not surprisingly, some of his favorite memories at revolve around his time on the football field and baseball diamond. He remembers the thrill of making 15 tackles and throwing the winning touchdown against the state's #1 team and the excitement of securing their first win against Lakeside, their archrivals across all sports. Since time at King's, he's surely seen many more victories, both on the field and in the hearts of new believers.
