Rev. James Harris

I spent most my life in the High Desert. Born and raised in Ridgecrest in 1967 – 2001. Married Eunice in 1999, and we have two boys, Timothy and Joshua. Joshua has been a student of Apple Valley Christian Academy since 2014. Timothy is graduating this year from UCLA with a Mathematics degree.

I completed my BA at Concordia University with honors in 2003 and was accepted and completed a Masters of Divinity degree from Concordia Seminary in Saint Louis, graduating in 2011.

I have been serving as sole pastor at Ascension Lutheran in Apple Valley since 2011, where I completed my year of vicarage from 2010-2011.

We love the High Desert – the people here are awesome as well as the staff and faculty of AVCS.
