Jim Draper


I am an author, speaker, mentor, transitional life coach and retreat host. I am using all of my educational training and life experiences as a builder, real estate investor and bi vocational pastor to help people. I help leaders at a cross road in life find solutions, get results, restore confidence and enjoy good success.

I have been at the cross road many times in my life. The most memorable one was in 1980 when I went broke in the building business. I lost everything and found myself in debt and going through divorce. It was at that point I made a major decision in my life. I decided to put the faith I learned as a child into practice.

I began to read the bible and to apply the kingdom principles that I was learning. I began to see the results that were promised if I would just trust and obey the principles. I enjoy good success today because I built my life on a sure foundation.

Taking time to retreat, from our busy lives, has been a principle that I have followed since I saw Jesus set the example for us. He often withdrew to the mountains to hear the voice of his father. He would then come back and perform miracles. I now own a retreat where we encourage leaders to withdraw, reflect where you have been and focus on where you believe your life’s purpose is leading you.
I invite people to the retreat where they can begin the process of getting clarity on where they see themselves in the future. I follow up with them after the retreat weekend and offer them my support as their coach.

"Jim Draper is a rare gem; In a world full of people who talk the talk, he walks the walk. After living out his faith the last 40+ years Jim is a natural leader and coach. I’ve had the honor of being mentored by him for the past 2 1/2 years, and I’ve personally grown in a way I never thought possible.

At Goshen Falls Mountain Retreat, he uses real life experiences and teaches from a viewpoint of ‘been there done that’’.

Jim Draper has the uncanny ability to take highly complicated matters and break them down to make them easy to understand, easy to digest and moreover, easy to apply to your daily life."

"I’ve had the privilege of watching Jim Draper invite guests into conversation at Goshen Falls Mountain Retreat. In addition to to his warmth and authenticity, he is a natural host and I have personally experienced the hospitality offered to guests and helpers alike. Jim has a manner that bridges across people of all ages and stages of life. He is very welcoming to guests and his life reflects what he teaches. I’m grateful for time to both refresh at the retreat and enjoy the balance of fellowship, worship, teaching, nature, and prayer. I highly recommend Goshen Falls Mountain Retreat and I can not say enough to Jim Draper for his leadership and kindness extended to those who visit."
