Rev Hanna Shearer & Rev Heather James

Rev. Heather James is an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and has served several congregations in the Puget Sound region, most recently as the Transitional Pastor for Shepherd of the Hill in Puyallup, WA.


She is deeply committed to encouraging people as they answer God’s call to worship and serve together. She is passionate in the belief that Christ has established the church for a significant purpose in the world – that the world would know the love of God through the love expressed by God’s people in worship, fellowship, service, and mission.


Heather has served in full time pastoral ministry for almost 25 years, and remembers God’s call to church leadership as early as her young teen years when she led a bible study for second graders.  This call took root and has grown through God’s faithfulness and leading in many different seasons of life ~ a music degree at Grinnell College, pastoral training from Fuller Theological Seminary, serving in parish ministry in both installed and transitional rolls, and spending time overseas as a missionary in Asia.  One of Heather’s deep joys in ministry is leading God’s people in worship through Biblical reflection, prayer, and music.  She speaks with the ability to balance the message of God’s love for us with our call to share that love with others.


Heather lives with her daughter in an old farm house in Tacoma, WA.  You can often find them biking, hiking, or kayaking in our beautiful northwest region.  Heather also loves quilting, good coffee shops, and is an avid reader.  But her deepest joy is being Hana’s mom.
