THE REV. CESAR OLIVERO, RECTOR
At St. James we are a multi-cultural community of Christians bound together for a common purpose . . . to meet the daily and spiritual needs of our community. We envision St. James continuing to grow and still providing a family atmosphere.
It is our hope that we can meet the needs of all who come through our doors. St James is representative of God's coming kingdom, in that we reflect the beauty of God's culture in its diversity and order. We welcome all races and nationalities.
We encourage all newcomers to become active in our church life, which includes our worship, Christian education, fellowship, service, envangelism and community outreach.
