Pastor of First Christian Church
James W. Dain assumed his responsibilities as Pastor on December 3, 2017. A graduate of St. Louis Christian College, Jim had previously served churches in California, Missouri, and Illinois. Beginning in 2003, while a student at Lincoln Christian Seminary, he pastored two churches in Midwestern locations, and is now the Camp Manager for Mississippi Valley Christian Service Camp in Detroit, Illinois.
Jim and his wife Brittany make their home in Pittsfield, Illinois. They have four children, Jimmy, Bonnie, Molly, and Victoria. Jim has two adult children, Matt and Jessica, who live in the Fort Wayne, Indiana, area. Jim enjoys camping, hiking, shooting sports, and reading.
Jim remarks, "Iím a bit of a mid-western transplant, and loving it! My father, also Jim, was an Air Force medic and our family traveled with him until we finally settled in Southeast Idaho. I joined the US Navy after High School and greatly enjoyed most of my eight years of service. When I finished my second enlistment I used my GI Bill to attend St. Louis Christian College and Lincoln Christian Seminary. Until I graduated from SLCC I worked as a calibration technician for Boeing-St Louis."
