Daughter Church of LMPC information

Called Evangelist

We are excited to have called the Rev. James Cubie to serve as the evangelist to lead the start of the daughter church.   

The Rev. James F. Cubie is a native of Washington D.C., but has deep roots in the Carolinas: His mother's family is from Wilmington, North Carolina, and his father lives nearby in Bluffton. 

James has been married to Tara for thirteen years, and together they have a twelve year old daughter, Lina, and a one year old son, Jack.

 James has served at Leesburg Presbyterian Church, in Virginia, for the past four years, as their Associate for Formation (Discipleship).  His ministry brief included children, youth, young adults and men, in addition to preaching once a month, and pastoral care.

James was assessed positively by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to lead a church plant in late 2013, and has worked with the east coast team that focuses on creating New Worshiping Communities, since then.  James has worked on several teams that developed new worshiping communities, in Northern Virginia, and most recently with a team that successfully started a community now officially recognized by PCUSA and National Capital Presbytery.  

The focus of James' ministry at Leesburg Presbyterian has been building disciple teams to do two things: Strengthen disciples in their identity as followers of Jesus, and train them to reach people who would not ordinarily come to church.  

In both of these, James has an excellent track record: Their Sunday morning children's program grew to encompass over ten percent of the church's membership; their youth group tripled in size, with fully one third being youth whose parents did not go to church; and, he created a small groups culture, led by Youth; finally, he started a small groups ministry for adults, that included four groups of between ten and twelve participants, meeting twice a month in homes for fellowship and discipleship.  James loves to build teams for the Kingdom, and will bring this passion to his work in Dutch Fork, on behalf of Lake Murray.  

James is an excellent preacher and teacher, and has taught for The Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington, since 2011.  He has led several church-wide retreats for area churches, and taught seminars on theology and the history of the church.  

Finally, James serves on the board of The Fellowship Community (formerly "The Fellowship of Presbyterians" and "Presbyterians for Renewal"), which Lake Murray Presbyterian is a member of, and which connects churches and pastors in the PCUSA through: pastoral accountability, missional practices (the things you do to start a new church), and generous, orthodox theology.
