The Reverend James Spencer
Jim has served the St. Peter’s community since 2003 bringing a variety of experience and education to the parish. A MATS degree in Pastoral Counseling from Gordon Conwell in 1978 and a MDIV from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1980 have provided the building blocks for a career where preaching and pastoral counseling are cornerstones.
After also serving at St. Simon’s on the Sound Episcopal Church, Fort Walton Beach Florida (1998-2003) and All Saints Episcopal Church, Winter Park Florida (1982-1998), Jim is glad to be in New Smyrna on a permanent basis. Purchasing his first home here in 1985, Jim and his wife Sally now live near the church with a house full of animals. Talk about coming full circle, it just took 25 years! Fr. Jim can be contacted at (386) 428-7383 or FrJim@stpetersnet.net.
