About Pastor Jim Mueller

Pastor Jim Mueller‘s ministry experience includes Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod training as an American missionary. He has served as an Associate Pastor in a large church with over 1,000 in average weekly attendance (CrossPoint Community Church, Katy, TX), as a church planter in Austin, TX (Austin City Church), and as a Senior Pastor in a medium-sized church outside San Antonio, TX (Hosanna Lutheran Church). Since 2014, he has served as Senior Pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in Hurst, TX. He completed his doctorate at Portland Seminary last spring.

Pastor Mueller has been married to April for 18 years with 4 wonderful kids (Isaiah 16, Ivy 15, Vienne 13, Leo 10). His family is a great gift to him in ministry, and he seeks to balance his church career with his family’s discipleship opportunities (i.e., his call is their call too). He is a passionate, Christian father and takes joy in the fact that his children all dearly love the Lord. His wife, April, shares this passion as a Director of Christian Education (Concordia University Chicago) with a master’s degree in theology (Concordia Seminary St. Louis). After spending 10 years raising their children as a stay-at-home mom, April has now worked for 7 years as a K/1 elementary school teacher. In his spare time, Pastor Jim Mueller loves Cross Fit-style workouts, snow skiing, and spending time with friends and family.
