Staff and Leadership

NOTE: From June 13th to July 1st, 2022, Elsa Dougherty, our Administrative Assistant, will be in the office from 3:00-7:00pm to accommodate a summer performance training. If you need assistance, Pastor David will be in the office in the morning and Elsa will be in at 3:00pm. You can also email Elsa and she will get back to you promptly!

We continue to work out of our temporary office at the corner of SW 10th and Jefferson until August.

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. A receptionist will be available Monday–Friday from 7:30am to 2:00pm — starting again after the Independence Day holiday. At other times, just leave a message.
