Pastor Odane James


Pastor Odane James was born on September 23, 1982 at the Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay, Jamaica.  He was the first son born to Bishop Dafton and Lady Pauline James and was called the son of consolation by his mother because of his miraculous birth that was truly an answer to prayer.  He then spent his early childhood growing up in the parish of Westmoreland, in Savanna-La-Mar Jamaica where he received his early education through primary school.  Odane is remembered for reciting Palms 100 and singing before the Holiness Born Again Church congregation in Savanna-la-mar at the age of two, and for his elaborate worship and remarkable sincerity that set him apart from the other young children at his church.

At the age of nine, Odane was baptized in the name of Jesus and filled with the precious gift of the Holy Ghost not many days hence.  He immediately began to utilizing his gifts and talents through the ministry of music, and soon became the lead keyboardist, a proficient drummer, and a well loved singer at the First United Church of Jesus Christ in North Miami lead by Bishop Charles Mullings.  In 1995 Odane’s father was called of God to pastor a church in Miami, Florida.  This transition changed Odane’s life forever and became the springboard for the development of his ministry.  Odane labored along side his father building up the ministry in Miami, but little did he know that God was building a ministry in him. 

Odane preached his first sermon at the age of 13 and began captivating audiences with his dynamic and charismatic personality through the awesome anointing that God has placed on his life. He continued in the ministry of the word and was commissioned to the office of a Minister when he was 18 years old and was ordained a Minister at the age of 19.  At the age of 25 he was ordained an Elder and became the youngest Elder in his church organization.  In 2012 God called Elder James to the office of a Pastor, and with the support and guidance of his leadership, Elder James launched The Transformation Center in Tampa, FL.  Today, Pastor Odane James is an international preacher ministering all over the world in such countries as Jamaica, England, Canada, and all over the United States of America declaring the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Apart from ministering full-time, Pastor James is also a graduate from Johnson & Wales University in North Miami.  He holds an Associates degree in Business Administration graduating with Magna Kum Laude honors and Bachelor’s degree in Business Management also graduating with MagnaKum Laude honors.  

Pastor Odane James is the husband of one wife, Lady Tiffany James, a wonderful woman of virtue who God has strategically positioned in his life to compliment the ministry and to help accomplish the mandate that God has placed on both of their lives.  Pastor James is also a father of 2 beautiful daughters, one of which has gone home to be with the Lord.  Her departure was a great turning point in the life and ministry of the James' family and servers as testament that God can take broken pieces of a shattered life and use it for His glory. Pastor James lives a life of continual, effectual, and fervent prayer and fasting and has dedicated his life to the ministry that God has called him to.  He counts himself a prisoner for Christ and an ambassador of the unadulterated, invincible, and infallible gospel of the Lord Jesus.  His life’s passion and true purpose is expressed through Paul’s writings in 1 Corinthians 9: 16, “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid on me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!”
