Jim McClintock began his singing "career" at the young age of 6, when his local church "Sunshine Group", from his hometown of Springfield, Ohio, visited the "Prison-Farm" to present a short inspirational music service. In order to be seen he was placed on a chair behind the podium, and sang with fervor; "Hold the Fort, For I Am Coming!" Thankfully, no prisoners tried to take over the place!

Jim became involved in Male Quartet singing during his freshman year in High School. During the next few years he sang with various Glee Clubs and numerous choirs, including the Roger Wagner Chorale and Mitzelfelt Chorale.

A graduate of Southern Adventist University, he earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business and Accounting. Both, private accounting and CPA firms for a number of years employed him as a means of supporting his gradually growing music career.

Jim sang with various professional gospel quartets throughout the Southeastern United States from 1952 to 1962. He declined a very lucrative opportunity to join the Jordanaires Quartet in 1958, while they were the "Back-up" group for Elvis Presley in several of his movies and recordings.

He became the bass of the King's Heralds Quartet of the International Radio Broadcast, Voice of Prophecy in 1962. For the next 15-years until 1977, he was privileged to sing in over 20 different languages and dialects. He recorded over 25 different albums of Gospel Music while with the King's Heralds, traveling worldwide, singing in the languages of various countries, which they visited during those years.

In 1977 he developed a personal music and preaching ministry.

MINISTRY OF THE CROSS became a full-time "Faith Adventure" in 1988, involving concerts, revivals, television & radio appearances throughout the United States, Canada, and Latin America. Since 1988, the Ministry has produced over 20 different albums, featuring many personal compositions, and includes 3 albums in Spanish.

Jim is married to Ann Pillor McClintock, a graduate of Loma Linda University School of Nursing, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. Ann is currently serving as Associate Executive Director of MINISTRY OF THE CROSS-. She is active in the Ministry as a contralto singer, and is featured in solos and duets on several different albums.

The McClintocks reside in Thousand Oaks, California, and continue to travel widely throughout the United States and other countries.
