​​The James Foundation for the Advancement of Christianity was established for the sole purpose of promoting the lessons taught by our Lord Jesus Christ to all. Promoting the love for one another, the respect and care for one another and realizing that we are all one in the eyes of God.
The James Foundation believes that the best way to promote this is by sharing the many events throughout the country with those not fortunate enough to participate because of either being bedridden, militarily deployed, disable or weather and distance restricted.

The seed of this foundation was first planted in 2001 when the first Sunrise Mass at The Deering Estate in Miami, Florida was held. An idea that was born after the founder visited the site where the Miracle of Multiplication occurred in Holy Land. Once there, he realized that he had a venue very similar in his backyard and what better way to Celebrate the Glorious defeat over sin and death with the Triumphant Rising of Our Lord than to share with the community and nourish them with the words of Salvation. It did not take long before this particular event grew into a tradition, not only in the community, but spread throughout the state with worshippers coming from as far as Tampa, Ft. Myers, Orlando and Jacksonville including visitors from other states such as Texas and now, through the power of the internet, being able to reach those far away so they too can enjoy the Celebration of Easter and witness the Rising of our Lord as the Sun Rises in a majestic setting created by God’s own hand.
