He and his wife Trish moved with their family to the Fox Valley in the fall of 1997 to begin working with Grace as it was just being established as a congregation. Jim grew up in SE Iowa and still has family ties to the area. He met his wife Trish at Geneva College in Beaver Falls, PA where he graduated in 1987 with a degree in Biblical Studies. He later attended seminary at Westminster West Theological Seminary in Escondido, CA in order to pursue a calling to the pastoral ministry, graduating in 1993. Pastor Megchelsen served as an associate pastor at New Life OPC in San Diego for four years before he and Trish returned to the Midwest. Jim and Trish have four children and they greatly enjoy living and ministering in the Fox Valley.
