Pastor James Wetzstein is the mentor for the Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) and works with the students who plan and implement Celebrate! every Wednesday night as well as those who lead Morning Prayer. He meets weekly with Valpo’s LCMS-U chapter to discuss current issues in theology and culture. Lessons learned through independent international travel and 12 years of experience in a small, multicultural congregation in Gary, Indiana, are at the root of his commitment to a global vision coupled with gospel-driven, grassroots local action. Pr. Jim and his wife, Tracey, an attorney, live in Gary with their 12-year-old son, Gabriel, and a bunch of dogs and cats. He draws a weekly, three-panel comic strip for churches called “Agnus Day.”
