Jim Hicks

jim-hicksPastor of Senior Adults and Prayer Coordinator | email | X114

Jim oversees the ever-growing 50+ group called Forever Young and coordinates the prayer ministry here at Grace. His greatest interest is seeing others awaken to the fact that God wants to use them, with their unique giftings and circumstances, regardless of their age. Jim is a “quote guy” and two of his favorite quotes are ”Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." and "Prayer is the work of God’s people.” He taught Art at Valley Forge High School from 1974-2008 before retiring and receiving his pastoral license through the C&MA. As a retired teacher, he appreciates the many teaching opportunities at Grace.

For over 30 years, Jim has been using his artistic abilities to impact others with the gospel by doing inspirational chalk presentations. He and his wife, Lucille, love ministering together and having the kids and grandkids over whenever possible. In their free time they hit the road to enjoy hiking and retreats to Amish country and Hocking Hills. They were married in 1974, and they have four adult children and six grandchildren.
