Marianne Leventry

Financial Administrator

One of my greatest blessings since being at St. James is being introduced to the spiritual practice of Lectio Divina.  I still can’t believe that I stepped out of my comfort zone and started the Noon Lectio Class.  It is an amazing way to lose ourselves and grow in our Lord.

Chris Garcia

I help members of the congregation and our visitors engage in our ministries.  As a part of that effort, I organize the tracking and engaging of visitors and new members.
