Our Ministry


First Presbyterian Church’s leadership equips members and friends to pursue and nurture
a life-changing relationship with God in Christ. Our staff members reflect the diversity of background, faith histories, and Christian church experience typical of our Merchantville and southern New Jersey communities, as well as this congregation of professionals,
young families, retirees, teenagers and children.

In partnership with elders and other elected church leaders, The Rev. Dr.  William Gaskill, guides our worship life and oversees the congregation’s mission as a caring, learning community of faith. Together with a staff of dedicated and gifted church professionals, Pastor Bill works to establish this congregation as a welcoming ministry that values and serves families, individuals and children alike.
