New Life Assembly of God – Rev. James Dinger
Pastor Jim is an Ordained Minister of the Assemblies of God. He and his wife Julie moved their family from Erie, PA in early 2011 to join New Life Assembly of God as the Senior Pastor.
While Pastor Jim has a degreed education and over two decades experience in Marketing and Business Development, he pursued his seminary education after receiving a call from God to formally enter the ministry almost 12 years ago.
He is certified as a Level 1 Coach, has completed the 507 level of Coaching Teams and has completed Conflict Coaching through the ACSTH program of the International Coach Federation. Currently Pastor Jim and Julie are leading New Life Assembly of God through the Healthy Church Network, Acts 2 Initiative of the Assemblies of God.
He is passionate about his relationship with God and enjoys spending time with his family which consists of being married to his high-school sweetheart of 21 years and their three children (Jordan, Madison and Elijah). He loves the food groups of coffee and chocolate, would spend all day in the stream fly-fishing if he could (and he has) and loves spending time serving in the local church.
Pastor Jim has a heart for evangelism, missions (Local and Global) and discipleship. He desires for people to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and desires to see the church (both corporately and as individuals) recognize and pursue its God-given call to go into all the world to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ and to reach their fullest potential in Jesus Christ through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
