  • Jim Poirier

    LEAD Pastor

    Pastor Jim served as Lead Pastor at CLA for six years (2001-2007).

    After 10 years of serving in another role, in 2017, he returned to CLA as the Lead Pastor. He has a pastor's heart that is evidenced by his love for the people God has called him to serve. He loves to preach God's Word in a practical, easy to understand way where people can grasp God's truth for themselves and see God shape, mold and change lives.
