I grew up in the Pasadena Park Church of God in Grand Rapids, Michigan, just off of Plainfield Avenue, behind the Fat Boy’s restaurant. My pastors were Rev. Forest Plants, Dr. James Edwards, and Rev. Donald Dillon. It was a wonderful church family to grow up in.

My initial commitment to Christ occurred at Youth Camp in 1968 at Warner Camp. I preached my first sermon at Warner Camp in 1976 and was baptized there by Pastor Dillon at Camp Meeting in 1976.
I felt the call to ministry and attended Anderson College, gaining a BA in 1981.

I met my lovely wife Jeannie Taylor at college and we married in 1979. We have been blest with three wonderful sons; Matt and his wife Deanne, in Dewitt; JJ and his wife Jennie, seminary student at Anderson; and Aaron, a junior preparing for ministry at Anderson. These sons represent the 3rd generation of Perry’s to study at AU and to serve in the Church of God.

I have served in pastoral ministry since January of 1981 – as a youth pastor at the Skyway Church of God, Seattle, WA ’81-84; CE pastor at Sunset Park Community Church in St. Helens, OR ’84-85; as senior pastor at the First Church of God in Cassopolis, MI’85-90; as senior pastor at the Greenville First Church of God 1990-2008; and now as the senior pastor at the Edgewood Church of God, Ithaca, Michigan.
I have served on the state level in a variety of positions. Jeannie and I directed youth camps for more than 17 years. I have been a part of more than nine missions trips across the US and Guatemala and Brazil. I have served locally on Housing Commissions, chair of Ministerial groups and chaplain service in jails. Jeannie and I love our family, camp meetings and Diesel, our Security Attack Yorkie Terrier!!!!

It is my pleasure to serve under our State Pastor, Dr. William Jones, and as Regional pastor to be an encourager to our congregations, a pastor to pastor, and a cheerleader for the wonderful things God has in store for the Church of God in Michigan. Great opportunities lie before us here in Michigan!

Northeastern Regional Pastor - Jim Horn

(810) 240-2528 (Mobile)

Jim’s hometown roots are in the heart of the Midwest – Kansas City, Missouri. However, after trying out for the KC Royals farm team…and not making it, he headed North. First, attending Mackinac College and then upon graduation from John Wesley College, Jim met and married his wife, and best friend, Vicky. After a short stint in Europe doing an independent youth ministry they returned to Michigan, where he has served the Community Church of God since 1981, as youth, associate and senior pastor. Jim worked with the youth ministry team for several years on our State Youth Convention. He has lead mission teams to Costa Rica, Mexico, and Canada. He has served on the Board of Pastoral Health and has trained in conflict resolution with Peacemaker Ministries, assisting churches to resolve areas of dispute utilizing Biblical principles.

“We love being a part of what God is doing in the lives of others and encouraging them to be all they can be in Him! We understand the lives of those serving in ministry can be particularly stressful and demanding. But, we have constantly been reminded of God’s faithfulness and amazing grace. So we choose Jesus and Joy!”

I look forward to and count it a privilege and joy, to come alongside to encourage and serve as one of your “regional pastors” in Michigan.
