Jim Beesley


Jim enjoys serving as the pastor and shepherd of our church.  Before coming to Windham Center Church in January 1988, he served as Associate Pastor for Education and Youth at the First Congregational Church of Kenosha, WI.  He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University at Buffalo (SUNY), and Master of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS, 1983).  Jim is happy to give back to the community by serving on the Boards of Caring Families, a crisis pregnancy ministry in NE CT, and the Willimantic Rotary Club.  He enjoys a good musical on-stage, taking care of his sour cherry tree and flower gardens, and spending time with his two grand-daughters.  Jim and his wife Ellie make their home in Windham Center with their two nieces.
