Pastor Jim began his ministry with Calvin Presbyterian on November 1, 2014. As a former Midwesterner, his first three pastorate were in Iowa. Jim received both his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry in Preaching from McCormick Seminary in Chicago. Jim and his wife Anne are the very proud parents of three daughters, one in London, England, and two in New York City. In their free time, Jim and Anne enjoy exploring God’s creation in The Great Northwest, a round of golf and discovering all that the greater Portland area has to offer. Pastor Jim is grateful for the opportunity to serve this wonderful congregation and the excitement and challenge of living as a Christian community and a growing church.
