Jim is the happy husband of Jennifer and the proud father of two young children. They are grateful to be called to serve the Lord among us here in Williamsburg and they plan to remain in our community for years to come.

Educated at Ohio University, Jim graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Communication. He then went on to spend eight years as a professional in the insurance and risk management industry.

Discerning his calling to ministry, Jim enthusiastically left a lucrative professional career to attend Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. There he earned his M.Div. degree.

The son of a veteran and a veteran himself, Jim naturally chose to continue his service to his country by serving as a chaplain resident at the Atlanta VA Medical Center before coming to us. While there, he received valuable pastoral experience in the intensity of a hospital setting.
