St. James Lutheran Church & School has been a part of the Quincy community since 1851. Convinced that we do not live on bread alone but on every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God, from the year of its founding, St. James has had a grade school. The mission for both our Church & School is, “Seeing and Sharing Jesus!” He (Jesus) must increase and we must decrease. (John 3:30) We’d love to have you join us as we “Behold the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Jesus is the one who gives us life in all of its fullness (John 10:10). It doesn’t get any better than that.
God has blessed me tremendously through His gift of marriage and family. My wife Jeanie and I were married on May 25, 1975. God has blessed us with three daughters. Our oldest daughter, Crystal is an occupational therapist in Waco, Texas. Our middle daughter Emily is a teacher and married to Pastor Adam Gless in Mayer, Minnesota. They have two sons, Christopher and Will, and two daughters, Nora and Lydia. Johanna our youngest is a nurse and is married to Pastor Justin Bell in Knoxville, Tennessee. God has blessed them with two daughters, Payton and Delaney. They are expecting their third child in July 2015. It has been my joy and privilege to be pastor here at St. James since February 1999. Previously I served congregations in Howard, South Dakota; Muscatine, Iowa; and Riverton, Wyoming.
