Welcome to my Blazing Trees’ mission page > Maranatha!

My name is James Harvey, and I love Jesus. I was born in Phoenix, AZ, and grew up as a missionary kid in Hong Kong, China and Manila, Philippines. I’ve been married to my best friend Jen for 12 years, and our son Aiden is in middle school. We live in Nashville, TN, and I am the Founder/CEO of Blazing Trees ministries.

Thank you for visiting my website and caring about me and my family. Please explore below my different ministries and pray about adopting Blazing Trees into your personal generosity plan.

By the grace of God, I have the privilege of serving serval leadership networks in personal prayer:

Fort Lauderdale, Stephan Tchividjian, NCF Giving,

Birmingham, Scott & Renee Montgomery, Soar Mission,

Milwaukee, Don Buege, Love Russia Mission,

We also launched a new prayer podcast in June 2020 called “Praytell Stories,” you can listen and subscribe here:

I am passionate about developing Bible story drawings to help people remember Bible stories.

As of Summer 2020, we have 120 Bible story lessons and five story sets online for free download through our Storytellers Bible Project:

Many leaders have never been discipled. So, God has called me to disciple leaders in some very specific areas of great need:

Personal Time with God Daily

Healthy Marriage & Family

Sabbath Rest

Listening to the Holy Spirit

Freedom in the Holy Spirit

Discerning Passions & Anointings

Calendar & Priorities Mapping

Spiritual Warfare & Suffering

Over the last 12 years of our mission, our Father has opened the door for me to train mission teams. Here are the basic lessons I teach and where to find them in the Bible:

Psalm 23 – Faithful Shepherd

Isaiah 61 – Restoring Ruins

Proverbs 3 – Wonderful Counselor

1 Corinthians 2 – Beyond Understanding

Galatians 4 – Trustworthy Heirs

Romans 8 – Authentic Freedom

Hebrews 4 – Sabbath Rest

If you would like to experience my training, I published a new discipleship training video course all for free on YouTube. Grab a friend, and study through these Bible stories with me.

Wild Frontier Discipleship Course on YouTube:


I am humbled and blessed to provide free advice and consulting to missionaries and ministries taking the first steps of their Great Commission journey. Jesus has opened up doors to influence leaders and teams in China, India, Iran, Israel, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Mongolia, Morocco, the Pacific Islands, Peru, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Russia.

Here are some of the questions we explore during these coaching sessions:

How do I hear God’s voice?

How do I disciple my kids?

How do I fundraise for my mission?

How do I create a prayer culture on my team?

How do I recover from emotional burnout?

How do I forgive someone I hate?

Why is God not healing me of my affliction?

What will life be like in heaven?

You wouldn’t believe the number of missionaries and pastors here in the USA and around the world who do not have a single friend with whom they can be honest. That’s why Blazing Trees is here. We aim to be a trustworthy friend to and safe place for the nations.
