    Pastor

    The best part of Pastor Diane’s week is Sunday morning, leading worship, preaching, and presiding at communion. Her love of theology, desire to know God better, and commitment to answering the question, “but what does this have to do with me?” comes through in her preaching and teaching. Pastor Diane prays that St. James, its people and programs, would be grounded in God’s love and be God’s love in the world. Pastor Diane earned her M.Div. at Princeton Seminary and her Ph.D. in theology at the Graduate Theological Union.

Jerry finds tremendous meaning in shaping and reflecting the themes for worship and the experience of the worshipping congregation, through music.
