Hi, my name is Jim Sandberg.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and working with you as Faith’s “Director of Congregational Care.” From all that I have observed, in worshipping with you over the last 4 plus years, is that you are, at the very core of your life together, a loving and caring congregation. I consider it a blessing to work with you in building on your God given strengths and gifts for ministry.
And I will consider it a great privilege to join hands with you in praying for and visiting the sick, the shut-in, the dying, the grieving, and the most vulnerable in our midst.
Thanks for calling me to share in a ministry that is life-giving to our bothers and sisters on the ragged edges of life.
A quick word about myself: I am a graduate of North Park University, North Park Theological Seminary, and I, also, earned a Doctor of Ministry from North Park. I have 30 plus years of pastoral ministry experience; having served Evangelical Covenant churches in Attleboro, MA, DeKalb, IL, and Oak Lawn, Il.
I am the father of two great adult children, Misty and Erik. And thanks to Misty and Erik I am the proud grandfather of three beautiful and fun granddaughters, Elouise, Poppy, and Ingrid.
My full time work now is with the Olson Insurance Group. I am the SR. Relationship Manager. It is a family- owned business and I love working with the Olson’s.
I enjoy reading and writing. I am a big time Cubs, Bears, Bulls, and Hawks- fan. I should, also, confess, I am a serious gym rat. I love working out. If I am not answering my phone in the evening or on the weekends, I am more than likely at the gym or outside running.
