Rev Dr. Jim Rand, Pastor, email@example.com
Jim arrived at Tosa Pres in January 1996 after serving churches in Massachusetts, Delaware, and a student internship in the Bronx, NY.
For him, ministry is not a "one-size-fits-all" approach but requires being nimble and responsive to God’s word in the face of human pain, global upheaval, and societal change. When Scripture and human lives intersect, God speaks and discipleship happens – in surprising, unsettling, often joyous ways. Wrestling with the Unknowable and Unknown (as Jacob does in Gen. 32) leads to blessing for ministry and life-changing encounters.
Jim is a graduate of Union Presbyterian Seminary in Virginia and Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. He’s a husband, father and grandfather, bicyclist and baseball player (sort of like little league for old men!). He is honored to serve this congregation and amazed by God's gifts that are here.
