Pastors & Staff

Jim Stewart

Head Pastor

Pastor Jim has a very practical and loving style in his teaching through the Bible. This approach reveals his passion to communicate the truth of God's Word in a way that will help to develop the new Christian and yet challenge even the most seasoned believer to experience a more effective and closer walk with the Lord.  At the same time his desire is to call to repentance those who have yet to experience the love of God and to receive salvation through the finished work of the cross.  A resounding theme seems to be in making a distinction between being merely religious verses cultivating a real relationship with the one True Living God.
