We are happy to welcome our new pastor, Reverend James P. (Jim) Leuenberger and his wife, Pamela (Pam) to both McKeesport and our church family. Jim has been a pastor in the PC(USA) for the past 31 years and comes to us from Grove City, PA where he was serving as an Interim Pastor. Jim and Pam have four children: Andy, Josiah, Sam, and Grace. The entire Leuenberger family enjoy running and are avid Pittsburgh sports fans.
Jim’s primary areas of focus in ministry are preaching, teaching, small group ministry, pastoral care, and helping churches and presbyteries build their capacity for engagement in God’s global mission. He has been active in taking part in children’s and youth ministries in the churches he has served, and has also always enjoyed ministering to the older members of his congregations, finding much in their faith and lives that has humbled and inspired him. Jim and Pam and the entire Leuenberger family are extremely excited about their move back to the Pittsburgh and for this opportunity to become part of the McKeesport Presbyterian Church family!
