Jim’s Bio:

Jim recently served from September 2, 2021 to January 1, 2022 as the Interim Executive Minister upon the retirement of Soozi Ford and before that, from July to October 2018, when Soozi was on sabbatical. After the retirement of Phyllis Goodyear (January 2019), Jim also was called to serve as a part-time Interim Region Minister with Churches in Northeast and East Central Indiana. With his experience serving on staff with ABC-IN/KY Region Ministry for 27 years before retiring in 2015, Jim was able to step into these roles easily, and we are very fortunate he has agreed to serve in his newest interim role as a Region Minister covering parts of the Central Area.

During his years on staff full time, he served as Director of Camp Ministries working with our region camps, and then as a Resource Minister to Northwest and West Central Indiana churches and pastors.  During his 40 years of ministry in Indiana, he has served as a youth pastor, associate pastor and solo pastor as well.  Christian education and discipleship have been his focus in whatever capacity he has served in.  He has led hundreds of workshops on teaching children, youth and adults for local churches and region-wide events.  While on Staff and even after retirement, Jim has served part time teaching with the Church Leadership Program (CLI) sponsored by ABC-IN/KY in collaboration with ABCGI, and providing leadership with the formerly- held annual Face to Face Events sponsored by five participating ABC region ministries.

Jim and his wife, Jean, live in Reelsville, IN near Terre Haute.  They enjoy outside activities–especially involving nature, and spending time with their two adult children and grandchildren
