Elder Arthur Balthrop

An Entrepreneur

It seems that from childhood, Elder Jim has had an entrepreneurial spirit, which has led to a number of business ventures over many years including restaurants, a grocery store, and numerous smaller ventures. Little did he know at the outset that God was preparing him for conducting kingdom business! Elder Jim is skilled in project management, organizational development, and strategic planning and he brings all of these skills to bear in his position as Chief Operating Elder of Petra International Ministries. In this position he is responsible for the day to day operations of the ministry, reporting to Bishop Donald Clay and the Administrative Elders of Petra.

Elder Jim’s passion is to see a proliferation of business ventures within the body of Christ utilizing kingdom principles that will become a source of liberation and prosperity for families and communities. He believes that there is a legacy of successful, godly life principles that must be transferred to our children so that cycles of oppression, poverty, and dependency can be broken for generations to come.
