Jim and Darla accepted the call to pastor the Northside Church in January 2018.  They quickly made Alaska their home supporting their church and local school, Anchorage Junior Academy, where Darla teaches grades Pk-K.

The couple pastored as lay leaders for seven years before Jim completed his seminary master’s degree at Andrews University.  In 2013, he became a full-time pastor in the Oregon Conference leading the Rivers Edge, Grand Ronde, and Sheridan congregations until their move to the Last Frontier.

Pastor Jim accepted Jesus as his personal Savior while attending Western Oregon University.  With only one quarter left to complete his degree, he felt called to attend Walla Walla University.  There he met the love of his life, Darla Brown, an elementary education major.

The Northside Church is grateful that God has blessed us with this dynamic couple who loves the Lord and loves our church family.
