Pastor Jim Mccoid

Senior Pastor

I grew up going to church. Then in college I was forced to really confront my beliefs, while studying biology, and chemistry. Through it all, my faith in God grew in those years. I moved from medical to pastoral education upon graduation.

I have been a pastor for 10 years now, here at Community of Life for 2 of that. My wife and I have 4 awesome children. We love the outdoors, having folks over, PS3, family dance parties, and wrestling in the family room.

I love that our Christian faith is a thinking faith, based on many historical assertions that can be tested to form a cumulative case for faith in Jesus...and brewing beer, playing basketball, and playing strategy games.

To God be the Glory!

I'd say my four favorite things in life are: Jesus, New Adventure, Music and Coffee! I also love hanging out with and getting to know people! I would love to chat with you about anything and everything from the latest movies to the awesome ways you are seeing Jesus at work in your daily life... lets go grab coffee!! 

Even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved. (Eph 2:5)
