Pastoral Team

The St. James team is made up of clergy and laity who are committed to serving the members of this congregation and the entire community.  Our goal is to share the gospel through teaching, preaching, music, stewardship and ministry. 

Please take a moment to read about our team so that you are familiar with who we are, what we do, and how we can best serve you.  My prayer is that the Lord will bless and work through St. James as we continue “Connecting People with God in Practical Ways.”
