Pastor James Heroux
Welcome! I’m Rev. James Heroux and I have been the pastoral leader of the Glenwood Moravian Community Church since November of 2023. I grew up in the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church before attending UW-Stevens Point to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. In 2018, I graduated from Moravian Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity and was ordained as a deacon of the church. Recently, I was consecrated as a presbyter, the second order of ministry in our denomination and an affirmation of your calling.
Serving in a congregational setting energizes me because each day is unique, and I have the opportunity to be with people of all ages through the great variety of experiences we share in this life. I am proud to call the Moravian Church home for our emphasis on building community, our inclusive and affirming beliefs, and because we value a “theology of the heart” over creeds and statements of faith. A walk of faith is best spent wrestling with questions, caring for the world with the gifts we have been given, and joining one another in our sorrows and celebrations, and I think the Moravian Church is a beautiful place to support that journey.
My wife Alli and I are enjoying life in Madison. You can often find us on a walk with our dog or continuing our quest to visit every coffee shop in town. I love running and cheering for Wisconsin sports, and I am a firm believer that you can never have too much ice cream. Feel free to reach out at email@example.com.
