Pastor Jim is a new and welcome arrival to Sabinal and Central Christian Church. Jim went to the University of Texas thinking he wanted to be a petroleum engineer, however, God had different plans for his life. He was called into the ministry and switched his educational and spiritual trajectory as he transferred to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, graduating in 1997. After serving for 20 years as the Senior Pastor in a non-denominational church near Austin, he wasn’t sure what God had in mind for his next season in life until the Lord called him to Sabinal.
Jim likes to laugh and to have fun with others who enjoy a well-developed sense of humor. His greatest passion is witnessing people come to know Christ, as they begin to discover not only how great He is, but also, how good He is.
Jim and his late wife, Susan, have three “really cool” daughters along with three, “almost just as cool” sons-in-law, who share eleven “fabulous” grandchildren. He loves the beauty of nature and has quickly realized that there is plenty in and around Sabinal.
Jim brings a new spirit and energy to our church and is thrilled to begin a new adventure in following the Lord Jesus! He extends a warm invitation to join us in worship and study as we experience together how God is moving in Sabinal and Central Christian Church. Welcome, Pastor Jim, we praise God for bringing you to our family!
