Welcome Ambassadors

Our Welcome Ambassadors are a group of involved and committed “St. Jamesers” who are eager to share their knowledge of and passion for our community with you.
Newcomers will be matched with an Ambassador for a low-pressure connection to someone to help you navigate and get to know the church itself, the programs and the people at St. James’s.

If you are a newcomer and have not yet been contacted by one of our Welcome Ambassadors, please get in touch with Laura Strickler. If you are a current parishioner who would like to join this special ministry to share your enthusiasm for St. James’s with newcomers, click here.

We would be delighted to know you better. If you’re interested, too, please fill out this simple form.
