Reverend James Lunde
James *Jim* Lunde is a native of Lansing, Michigan, and comes to Warrenton from Knoxville, Tennessee where he has been the Pastor, Head of Staff at Graystone Presbyterian Church. Prior to his installation in Knoxville, Jim held the distinct honor of serving in residency at Second Presbyterian Church, Indianapolis where he ministered to a congregation of over 4000 members. The residency program in Indianapolis is extremely competitive and is considered the “Rhodes Scholar” program for new pastors.
Jim’s strengths of worship leadership, and desire to dive deeply into scriptures initially attracted the men and women of the Nominating Committee to him as a candidate for church leadership. His profound sense of strategy and vision for building bridges of Christian service within the community fit perfectly into the mission and vision to which WPC feels called. Stop by and see Jim on the Pulpit every Sunday.
