Introducing POJ's New Logo
Presbytery of the James has a new logo. The design's water imagery represents the river for which our presbytery is named as well as Jesus as the living wat er (John 4:1-42).

Please update your printed and online materials with this new logo. Several versions of the logo are available on the POJ website.
