The Rev. Dr. Christopher Doyle begins service as pastor of our church on May 1, 2023. He has also been serving Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church since February of 2017. He has entered into a shared pastoral relationship between these two churches.
Rev. Doyle studied in Jerusalem, Israel as both an undergraduate and graduate student. In 1995, he moved from Jerusalem to Bethlehem where he taught in the local Christian school system and worked at the Bethlehem Bible College. It was in Bethlehem that he met his wife, Hala, and there that both of their sons were born . Through his work at the Bethlehem Bible College, he began working in refugee ministry and working with the Presbyterian Church, USA. This work led him to a more formal call to ministry, and the family moved to Dubuque, Iowa, in 2005 for him to attend seminary. While studying at seminary, he pastored two small congregations, which soon became three, giving him valuable experience as a Shared Pastor.
In 2011, Pastor Chris was called to serve the Union Presbyterian Church in Carneys Point, NJ, until arriving in North Jersey to serve the Oak Ridge and Berkshire Valley Presbyterian Churches. In May of 2023, he completed service with the Berkshire Valley church and accepted a call from the West Milford Presbyterian Church.
West Milford Presbyterian Church is located at 1452 Union Valley Rd., Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church is located at 342 Oak Ridge Rd., Oak Ridge; learn about them at www.orpcnj.org.
Pastor Chris will be in the office on Wednesday & Thursday – 10AM to 4PM – pending any pastoral duties that may take him away during that time.
