Jim is a Pastor at Calvary who specializes in crisis and pastoral ministry. He has served the Lord and community extensively as Deputy Senior Chaplain at Placer County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy, in prison ministry, missions, youth programs, on a suicide/runaway hotline, as a Sunday school teacher and administrator, deacon, elder, men’s ministries leader and more.
Jim grew up with an alcoholic father who, to indulge in his addiction, sacrificed family, jobs, food and ultimately himself. As a result of his own involvement in alcohol and drugs, life was poor, lawless and at times violent. Since committing his life to Jesus in 1977, God has used his past to transform Jim into a Godly husband, dad, pastor and chaplain. If you would like to hear more of Jim’s testimony, just ask him.
Jim enjoys all types of outdoor activities, where he can appreciate and admire God’s creation. He’s been married to his wife DeeAnn for more than 30 years and have two children, Jeremy and Sara.
