Travels From: Clemson, SC

James & the Parishioners began as a ministry to serve the Clemson University Catholic Student Association after a few of us saw the need for a new and different form of worship than we already had at Clemson! A trip to Nashville and many doodled-on napkins later, a band was formed, a name had stuck, and James & the Parishioners was born!

After playing for a year and a half at the local church in Clemson, we decided that God was calling us to take our talents on the road and minister to people wherever He would send us. So that's what we did! When we aren't running Praise & Worship for the Clemson University CSA, or leading XLT Upstate in South Carolina, we're running around sharing our gifts and love for Christ with others!

At the heart of our ministry lies our love for Jesus Christ and His church, so we love to share that same love with everyone we meet - mostly through music! We really believe that music is one of the best ways to enter into prayer and worship, but don't just take OUR word for it, give it a try! We promise you won't be disappointed.
