Staff and Leadership

We’d love to hear from you! All Staff and Leadership of St. James can be reached by calling the church office at 503-227-2439.

NEW OFFICE HOURS: Beginning in September, we make a change in the office hours when calling or visiting St. James. A receptionist will be available Monday–Friday from 7:30am to 2:00pm. At other times, just leave a message. We hope to have a new permanent receptionist by early October, but these new office hours will still be in effect.
