Pastor Jim Etheridge

Rom. 15:5 “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus.”

Jim Etheridge moved to Colo. Spgs. more than 40 years ago. After completing his BA degree locally at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (history and pre-med), he saw the hand of God change the direction of his life. In response to God’s call, Jim and his family relocated to southern Calif. in 1985 to attend Talbot Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and serve on staff with Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, CA. In 1989 the days of preparation were finally over. Pastor Jim moved back home to start a new work on the eastside of Colorado Springs; Calvary Chapel Eastside was born Sept. 10, 1989.

Pastor Jim and his wife Kathy have three adult children (Don, Luke and Jenny) and two precious grandchildren.  They are here to serve the Body of Christ as He leads and directs and look forward to serving in partnership with you!
