Prior to his arrival at Covenant in 1991, Jim had, since 1974, directed the Biblical Theological Seminary Library. His three graduate degrees are from Philadelphia area schools. In 1975 he was ordained and married Denise Marchand. Their son, Kent, now married, was born in 1979. Since 1975, Jim has been involved part time in chaplaincy, first with the military, then with the police. He also has served on several library association boards. Milestones of his time at Covenant include worldwide library integration, tripling the building’s size, and fast access to vast digital and physical resources. Library staff members are paramount to the Library’s success, and Jim’s gratitude for them is keen!
