Recognizing Rev. James Reisner
Jim Reisner is the “dean” of FOCUS pastors, having come to be pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church 15 years ago. He says “It has been an honor to be part of FOCUS Churches. The ecumenical and interfaith presence of FOCUS (and the enthusiasm of Westminster’s FOCUS volunteers) was very attractive to me when I first considered coming to Westminster. ” Pastor Jim and his two sons are moving to the Washington/Baltimore area where his wife Martha Reisner has recently taken a job with the Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
Pastor Reisner’s certificate read: FOCUS Churches of Albany gives thanks to Jim Reisner for his many years as a faithful FOCUS Board Member and Vice President of the FOCUS Board” and was signed by Matthews and Ketcham.
