Jim LaCroix has been serving as the Children’s & Student Ministries Pastor since September 2016. Prior to that he served as part-time Church Administrator since January 2014. Jim’s passion is to free up pastors from as much administration as possible, to help them to become the leader, teacher, and shepherd God has called them to be. Besides working for Grace Church, Jim also leads Young Life in Salida. When not working, Jim loves to camp with his family, golf, fish, or just be outside somewhere in the sunshine! Jim and his wife Nancy met at Bethel University in St. Paul Minnesota, and were married in 1989. Nancy works part-time as an office manager for a company in Salida, and as a mom the rest of the time. Nancy loves beaches, reading, and family. Jim and Nancy feel incredibly blessed to be the parents of Sarah and Rebekah, two great teenage ladies!
