The Rev. James R. Wheeler, D. Min., has joined Housatonic Habitat for Humanity in the volunteer role as Interfaith Coordinator.
Rev. Wheeler recently retired from parish ministry after a 39-year career. For more than a decade he was Senior Pastor of St. John’s Episcopal Church, Stamford.
Both in Stamford and in previous parishes, Rev. Wheeler has been an active volunteer with Habitat, helping in construction, house repair and fundraising. He has begun his latest ministry by reaching out to local parishes. His goal is to draw volunteers from the regional inter-faith community to work together to build workforce homes for first-time home-buyers.
