Ordained in 1975, he has served churches in Washington, Wisconsin, Michigan and Connecticut before coming to New York. “My focushas been on helping congregations renew, redevelop and recover their passion for mission and ministry.”

Jim is married to Jacquelyn and has three kids and five grandkids. “Like a lot of families, we are scattered in geography but close in feeling. We are so blessed to share 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.”
