Very beginning we should have went with him from the very beginningSep 14, 2015Verified
Jim led a Family Recovery class at our local church that my wife and I attended for more than two years. He helped us deal with issues resulting from our personal pasts as they were manifesting themselves for each of us in a second marriage and blended "Brady bunch" family consisting of six teenagers. He was very helpful in getting us to see what was really going on in various situations, reframe our perspectives, and give guidance on how to deal them. I would highly recommend him for his care, warmth, experience, insight, skill, and counseling perspective that is informed by his Christian faith.Sep 11, 2015

Pastor Jim Gaffney was my first ministry mentor in 1989. His extraordinary ministry gifts were a great fit to launch my ministry. Jim would be the best recovery Pastor that any church could bring to serve the hurting and the wounded and assist in the building of a thriving congregation. Jim is the best that there is!Sep 8, 2015
Jim officiated our wedding. He met with us before our wedding day to get to know us as a couple and hear about our histories. Because he took this extra time to get to know us he added a personal touch to our vows. He was a calming and comforting presence during our ceremony and did an absolutely amazing job!Aug 13, 2015
Pastor Jim Gaffney made our wedding day awesome! He was genuine, mindful of our needs and the needs of the guests, and brought God into the ceremony! In addition, premarital counseling with Jim was crucial to our marriage. Jena and I know exactly what we were getting into!!!Jul 27, 2015
