Bill James, Senior Associate Minister
South Congregational Community
919-490-1634, ext. 307
Prior to relocating to Durham in 2007, Bill, his wife Kelly, and their four children made their home in Chicago where they planted a new church on the North Shore of Chicago (www.gracenorthshore.org). Bill, raised in Oklahoma and Texas, graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a B.B.A. in Economics and has a MDiv. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois.
Kelly was born and raised in eastern North Carolina and was graduated from the University of NorthCarolina - Chapel Hill. She and Bill met in 1987 while they were both working as campus ministers at the University of Kentucky. They married in 1989 and have been blessed with four children.
Without a doubt Bill and Kelly find some of the deepest joys in their lives through people — friends in their neighborhood, friends from church, and of course, family. They love being engaged in relationship with their children, in “life as it comes to them”, and through all kinds of activities: school, sports, music, outdoor, church, movies, and family activities of all kinds.
