St. James Episcopal Church in Hendersonville, NC is searching for a Director of Youth and Family Ministry who will, primarily, lead and love our youth into a relationship with Jesus. Additionally, this person will be the leader of faith formation activities at the church for adults, youth, and children. He or she must be an enthusiastic leader who thrives and enjoys working with children and youth. At the same time, this leader must have the creativity and intellect to organize adult formation programs.

     The May 2019 issue of "Bold Life," the monthly magazine focused on people and events in Hendersonville, included a nice profile of St. James' tower bell ringers.  There are only two towers with rope-controlled bells in North Carolina and our church is fortunate enough to have one of them.  The bells are rung on Sunday mornings, for weddings and funerals, and on other special occasions, and the band is always looking for newcomers willing to be trained in this ancient art.  To learn more about our bell band, go online to and use the Search function to find Change Ringers.  Please read about the St. James ringers and if you are interested in getting involved, you can either contact the church office (828-693-7458) and ask them to pass the information to the band's Ringing Master, Bob Aldinger, or you can email website editor Jim Loy (see the footer of this page for JL's address).
