James Baxter

J Baxter

As the primary teaching pastor, Pastor Jim has a passion for carefully unpacking the truths of Scripture. He has served at New Hope since 2004, although Pastor Jim’s connection to New Hope really began as a child when his father, Pastor Bob, planted the church. Pastor Jim and his wife, Wendy, have four children. He also has a deep desire to encourage missionaries around the world by leading short-term teams and going on personal trips to more than a dozen countries.
