Mr. James M. “Jim” Rissmiller

The Foundation’s program of seminars has greatly enriched my ministry more than twenty years. The annual getting together with colleagues to read theology and seriously discuss the trends occurring in the church and world from a Reformed perspective has truly been a blessing. It has kept me reading theology on a regular basis and continually thinking theologically about my life and work. When I was a pastor, the annual seminars kept my preaching and ministry fruitful. Now as a presbytery staff person, the seminars have enriched my care of clergy in their pastoral roles, and well as helping me to think theologically about the work of Presbytery. Thanks for the opportunity to share my experience.
