Jim Perteet is a native Californian born in San Jose in 1961. He is married to his dearest friend Kimberly. They are parents of three treasures, Gabriel (1987), Laurelyn (1989), and Rebekah (1993). Jim works as a manager of a large roofing company.
In late 1980, Jim began following God after recognizing his need to yield his life to the Creator - past, present, and future, and receive the wonderful gift of God’s grace. That gift was a life changed when he encountered forgiveness from God for sin, offered through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Perteet family have been members of the church now known as West Hills Community Church since 1991. Jim has enjoyed serving in the church as a shepherd elder for several years. His other pleasures and interests include family life, friends, people, travel, outdoor activities (camping, fishing, shooting, four wheeling, etc.). He plays and coaches soccer.
