Meet Our Team

Meet our leadership

James De La Torre Jr. - Communications Director

James has been attending TAF since 2014. He finds the worship experience authentic in his continual growth and personal relationship with Christ.

He recently graduated from UNC-G with a BS degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics. And his next step is to apply to a dietetic internship to go further in his new career in life.

When James isn't studying or working, you can find him working out at the gym, as fitness is also a big passion of his.

James is committed to seeing TAF grow and help spread the Gospel of Christ in the community and online.
