Jim sailing on Pendragon

Rev. James Eaton is the Pastor First Congregational Church of Albany, NY of Albany, NY, where he can be heard in person at the church’s 10:30 AM Sunday service. Ordained in 1975, Jim has served churches in Washington, Wisconsin, Michigan and Connecticut before coming to New York. “My focus for years has been on helping historic congregations renew, redevelop and recover their passion for mission and ministry.”

Jim is married to Jacquelyn and has three kids and five grandchildren. “Like a lot of families, we are scattered in geography but close in feeling. We are so blessed to share together in life as we all grow and change.”

He’s also passionate about sailing. Jim and Jacquelyn sail a classic Alberg 35 sloop named Pendragon out of Baltimore, MD. “Celtic monks speak of thin places, where it becomes easier to feel God moving and sailing is that for me. As the wind lifts the sails, I feel God moving my life the same way.”
