The future of St. James and our continued service to our God in building his Kingdom depends on all of us as members, servant workers, and leaders. We all have gifts and talents given freely by God and HE expects us to use them for His purposes.


You have an opportunity to lend your time, talents, and gifts through servant work and leadership. We have provided a listing of all the ministries and servant worker opportunities here at St. James, and strongly urge you to assess your strengths and passions, and focus your efforts serving.

The Nominations and Leadership Development Committee (NLDC) asks you to:

  1. Pray for guidance as you assess your God-given gifts
  2. Review the ministry worker and Leader openings, and the full ministry descriptions at the St. James website, stjamesumc.org. See “Equip” and “Get Involved”.
  3.  Complete the “I Am Interested” form on the section.

Persons interested in being nominated for leadership roles should:

  1. Openly profess a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  2. Attend worship consistently.
  3. Tithe or give cheerfully.
  4. Willingly commit the time required to develop and implement the ministry’s vision and goals.
  5. Attend Bible Study, and/or Sunday School.
  6. Have a desire to partner with, develop, and mentor other servant workers.
