Pastor James & Tammy Harper- Senior Pastor

Pastor James Harper has been ministering at Stony Point Christian Fellowship since  1981. It would be difficult to know Pastor Harper outside his relationship with his wife,  Tammy. They met at West Coast Christian College in Fresno, CA and married in 1978.  He grew up in Tennessee and she in Idaho. They have a son, Trevor, and a daughter, Aubrey. Both are married to wonderful spouses. Pastor Harper and Tammy are also blessed with 7 fabulous grandchildren. Home and family are a very important priority to the Harpers.


Pastor Harper and Tammy have been partners in ministry from their first church service in Santa Rosa in June of 1981. This is the first and only church that Pastor Harper has served. His commitment to Sonoma County is deeply rooted in the friendships and relationships he has built through the years. From the days of the church baseball and basketball teams to the fulfillment of his dream to have a viable and successful basketball league for elementary and jr. high school kids, Pastor Harper’s love of sports has truly been instrumental in the development of his ministry and the growth of the church family. Tammy has been there all along the way to fill whatever role was needed. Today her welcoming smile is usually the first thing you would see coming in the church doors on a Sunday morning.


Pastor Harper has a unique ability to bring the Scriptures to life and make them apply to daily living. His leadership and guidance through quality teaching and preaching is held as one of the most significant blessings God has bestowed on this church family. He is also an insightful counselor and has a compassionate heart for those who are finding their way to Christ.
