Rev. Dr. Glenn Schaeffer, Pastor

Pastor Glenn Schaeffer is new to St. James and to the Grand Rapids area. He became the pastor of St. James in March 2019. He is married to Sandra for 36 years and is father to four children, plus a son-in-law, and is “papa” to one! If you listen to him speak, you will soon pick up his Canadian accent. Please don’t hold this against him, but he is a Raptors, Maple Leafs, and Blue Jay fan. He loves to travel and teach internationally – having taught in Nicaragua, Thailand, Cameroon, and Rwanda – and having led tours to Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, and Austria.
