Rev. W. James Legge
It is official! We are happy to announce our New Pastor is Rev. Dr. James Legge, coming to us from outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, after 34 years of pasturing Bull Creek Presbyterian Church. He plans to preach his first sermon on World Communion Sunday, October 1st. You won’t want to miss this historic Sunday!
I have come to answer the call of the Community Presbyterian Church to serve as a Missional Pastor. Together we can serve Jesus Christ in Deerfield Beach in a ministry that will reach out to the greater community. This we will do in worship, fellowship, and mission in the Name of our Savior.
To this point in my life I have served our Lord in parish and academic ministries all in Western Pennsylvania. I am a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, followed by a Bachelor of Divinity/Master of Divinity/Doctor of Ministry Degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. I met my wife, Charlotte at college where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science in Education majoring in the field of Home Economics. This was followed by a distinguished career as a teacher in the area of Consumer Science where she was awarded ‘Teacher of the Year’ in Westmoreland County.
We have two children, William James Legge, III who lives with his wife in Spanish Fort, Alabama. They have two children who are attending college in Mississippi. Our daughter Charlene Heather Heydon, lives with her husband in Longview, Texas. They have four children the oldest two girls have graduated from college, one working in Houston, Texas, the other living and working with her husband in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, another daughter attending college at AFS and a son who will graduate from high school this year. Both of our children are Elders in Presbyterian Churches.
I hope you will join with me as we help build the Kingdom of our Lord.
