Rev. James E. Graeser Jr.

Hello! I am Jim Graeser, the pastor at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church.  I was called to HSLC in November 2020.  Previously I served congregations in North Florida for eighteen years, served four years on the Florida-Bahamas Synod bishop’s staff, and have returned from serving a congregation in Dallas, Texas, for three years. My wife Nicole and I are the proud parents of four adult daughters and grandparents to three adorable grandchildren. Nicole grew up in Dallas, and I grew up in a small town in Northwest Ohio. I’m a graduate of Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary (both in Columbus, Ohio). 


When not using our gifts serving with our church family, we enjoy motorcycle riding, travel, movies, and anything on or near water. I am excited to serve with the Holy Spirit Lutheran Church faith community. I want to invite you to come and experience the love and warmth of this family as we follow after Jesus.
