Building Community Through Christ

Jim Nelson


Greetings in the Name of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. I am Pastor Jim Nelson. I have been happily married to my lovely wife, Barbara, for over 35 years. We have been doing ministry our whole life together. Music and worship have always been at the center of our ministry. In 2021, I joined Holy Cross to share the Gospel, teach the Word and share the Sacraments with the community in Brigham City. My heart in ministry is that people will come to know Jesus Christ as their own personal Lord and Savior and grow in their understanding of His life-giving Word.

Pastor Jim and his wife Barbara enjoy riding in their free time.

Jeff George


Jeff George was raised in Brigham City with multiple sisters who played the piano and sang in various choirs. He developed an interest in music at an early age. Given those musical predecessors, his talent apparent, Jeff didn’t even have to audition for the school’s concert choir program. During high school years, Jeff was well known by his peers as a rock and roll superstar, playing in various bands. Jeff majored in music at Utah State University and after college toured with the USO in Japan and other countries. He then played with numerous bands across the United States, visiting every state in the union. Jeff plays the organ, piano, and guitar. His current interests are composing music with Biblical themes. He has original pop songs coming out soon on Spotify.
