• REV. RICHARD HONG

    Pastor  (email rich) (he/him/his)

    Our pastor since 2005, Rich holds the Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in NYC, and did his undergraduate work at Princeton University, receiving a bachelor's degree in chemistry.


    Prior to entering ministry, Rich ran his own software consultancy for twenty years, writing computer programs for research scientists in the pharmaceutical industry. He is a native of Chicago (and a lifelong Cubs fan), though he has lived in New Jersey ever since college. Rich particularly enjoys teaching having taught life-long learning courses at Union Theological Seminary after having taught Presbyterian history, worship, and polity at New Brunswick Theological Seminary. He often speaks on the use of technology in ministry. Rich also serves the community as a member of the Board of Directors of the United Way of Bergen County. Rich has a passion for evangelism and mission, and hopes FPC will continue its growth as an inclusive, multicultural, and intergenerational community.
