Press Release from Pathway Church in Coeur d’Alene

Pathway Church is excited to announce the arrival and installation of Pastor James Collard as their new Senior Pastor. In the summer of 2023, Pastor Art Valadez, the well-loved senior pastor of Pathway for the last five years, announced his retirement from full-time ministry to the leadership and church members. A several-months long process to find a new lead pastor, led by the search committee, brought forth Pastor James as the man God has chosen for this role. In January of this year, he was voted in by the church body, and has humbly accepted the call.

Pastor James will be a wonderful addition to both Pathway Church, as well as to the greater community, and Pathway invites the people of Coeur d’Alene to help welcome him. His first official Sunday serving as Senior Pastor will be Easter Sunday, March 31st, 2024. Pathway Church is located at 3115 N. 15th Street, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83815. Sunday service is held weekly at 11:00 a.m. Please visit for more information. We look forward to seeing you there!
