Upon ordination in 1964, Pastor Jim became the founding pastor of a three-congregation ecumenical parish at Adrian and Ellsworth, MN. In 1969 he was united in marriage with Esther “Konnie” Konsterlie, who was a Parish Worker at Montevideo, MN. They have two sons, Paul and John.

From 1969 to 1982 Jim was the senior pastor of First Lutheran Church at Volga, SD and from 1982 to 2000 he was the senior pastor of American Lutheran Church at Milbank, SD.

From 1970-2000 Jim had a weekday radio ministry, using various formats over eight stations.

In 2000 Jim and Konnie moved to Moorhead for “semi-retirement.” Since that time Jim has served eight years at Hitterdal, MN and two years at Leonard, ND where a new congregation was formed and named New Hope Lutheran Church.

In November 2010 Pastor Jim was called to be a visitation pastor at First Lutheran Church in Fargo.
