Jim Stumbo - Senior Pastor

Jim & Ronda Stumbo

Jim and Ronda Stumbo met at Crown College and were married in 1973. They have 4 married children and 11 grandchildren. (Both of their sons are Alliance Pastors, also.) They have served in 2 churches, Greybull, WY for 16 years, and here in Helena since 1990. Ronda is a Registered Nurse and works in an Assisted Living home. Jim has a passion to experience God and help others to do so, as well. "Many try very hard to live like Christ and give Him the credit, but that is different from the NT experience of having Christ live in me!" Jim also is a representative for CAMA Services in their Kosovo Lace Doilie Project, leads our District in establishing farms in Mexico for our C&MA churches, and is chairman of our Bible Camp, Yellowstone Alliance Adventures. In his spare time, Jim loves to hunt, fish, garden, mow lawns, and collect football cards.
