Parkview Church is excited to announce the arrival of our new senior pastor, James Erwin.  Pastor Jim and family come to us from Dix Hills Evangelical Free Church in Long Island, New York.   It was a long trek but they arrived safely in Rapid City January 12 with no travel or snow issues on the trip.

Current Pastor, Dave Greenhood, and Pastor Jim are cooperating in a 3-4 month time of transition, and late spring there will be an official retirement for Pastor Dave and a commissioning of Pastor Jim as the new senior pastor.   We are believing that the best is ahead for Parkview Church!  Pastor Jim will begin his first teaching series on February 6.

Pastor Jim and wife Monica both grew up in south central Iowa, met at the University of Iowa and married after graduation.  Sensing the call to full-time pastoral ministry, within a year or so Jim enrolled at Dallas Theological Seminary, where he completed a Master in Theology degree in New Testament studies, graduating in 2003.  Previous pastorates include Twynholm Baptist Church in London, England; senior pastor at Wellspring EFC in Mount Pleasant, Iowa; and almost four years at Dix Hills EFC.    Jim was ordained with the Evangelical Free Church in January, 2016.

Jim has been married to his wife, Monica, since 1998.   They have three children:  Jacob (17), Macie (12), and William (10).
