Jim is both associate pastor at Calvary and Deputy Senior Chaplain at Placer County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy, where he’s served for more than twenty years. Jim has also served in prison ministry, a suicide/runaway hotline, missions, youth programs, 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.
Pastor Jim specializes in crisis situations is available for ministry throughout the week.
