Rev. Christopher Heitkamp is the fifth installed pastor of our congregation since coming to this location in 1958. Originally from Michigan, Pastor Chris came to The Reformed Church in 2009 under a cooperative contract with Rev. Dr. Arlen Salthouse while finishing his schooling at New Brunswick Theological Seminary in New Brunswick, NJ. Upon his graduation and ordination, Dr. Salthouse retired and Pastor Chris accepted a call to be our pastor in September of 2010.
Prior to entering the ministry, Pastor Chris served in the United States Marine Corps where he served onboard the USS Kitty Hawk, and the USS Long Beach, as well as at Camp LeJeune, NC. Upon his discharge from the service he attended Trenton State College (now known as The College of NJ), and served as an elementary teacher for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes for 16 years.
Pastor Chris lives in Flemington, NJ with his wife and three teenage sons. He enjoys singing barbershop music, loves baseball, especially his Detroit Tigers, and vacationing in the Catskills.
