Mr. Rector left the WCG in 1978 and didn't attend services with any church group until the mid-1980s when he discovered a Church of God International (CGI) congregation meeting near his home. In 1991 he left the CGI and soon formed Cornerstone Publications. For more information about Jim and his ministry please see his June 1998 interview published in The Journal.

Jim is survived by his wife of 34 years, the former Rita Nutt, and his daughter Katrina McAlister.
