Jim and his wife, Doris, joined TWR in 1990. After raising support, the McIntyres left for their first term of service at KTWR on the island of Guam. 

Leaving a career of 20 years as a pipe fitter/welder behind, Jim was excited about using his abilities and talents for God’s glory and being part of sending his life-changing Word to the people of Asia. Over the years Jim has done many jobs, varying from antenna rigging, building and grounds maintenance to transmitter technician and purchaser of parts to keep the transmitters on the air.

On June 28, 2009, after a 19-year battle with cancer, Doris went home to be with her blessed Savior. Returning to the states to spend time with family, Jim sought the Lord’s direction for his future. Sensing that God wanted him back on Guam, Jim returned to the work at KTWR.
