Jim and his wife, Linda, have been in Columbus almost all of their adult lives. “Augy” went to dental school at The Ohio State University after attending Otterbein College, where he played basketball. As young adults, they became connected to Grace and came to faith in Christ. Later, he worked as a Westerville dentist for over 20 years before joining the pastoral staff at Grace. Augy and Linda have been active in many community areas, including Linda’s leadership with Pregnancy Decision Health Centers. They have two adult children and two grandchildren.
