Jim Fergusson, Director of Operations

Jim started with the team in the fall of 2017.  He has a degree in Biology and Environmental Science that he rarely uses. He has been helping churches and ministries in the Ottawa area with their technology, creative and wrangling needs since 2000, and has been involved with three local church plant launch teams. He likes to help churches be excellent, effective and efficient, and he loves to create to elevate.  Jim is always looking for opportunities to experiment, and loves to create engaging communications pieces, from video to print to the web. He is a lifelong geek fanboy, specializing in trivial and useless knowledge about movies (especially Star Wars), professional wrestling, and comic books. Jim is married to Wendy, who heroically tolerates Jim’s various obsessions.
