Bridge Interim Pastor

The Rev. Dr. Ed Halldorson, the former senior pastor of the Chatham Township Presbyterian Church for 29 years, started serving as our interim bridge minister beginning September 1. He will continue to serve through the end of the year.

The Reverend Dr. Edward Halldorson is the Pastor Emeritus of The Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township, NJ. Born and raised on Long Island, Ed was educated at Lafayette College and Princeton Theological
Seminary. He has served as the Associate Pastor of the Penfield Presbyterian Church near Rochester, NY, and as Senior Pastor at the First United Church (Presbyterian), Silver Creek, NY, before accepting the call to Chatham Township as Head of Staff in 1988. He retired from the Chatham Township church in 2019 after serving for over thirty years.

Ed and his wife, Linda, have four grown children: David, Christopher, Steve, and Emily; three daughters-in-law (Janine, Susan, and Chrissy), a son-in-law (Ebube Bakosi); nine granddaughters and three grandsons. Ed enjoys writing, reading, traveling, and spending time with his family.

While we were sad to see Dave leave, we welcome Ed as our Bridge Interim Pastor. Session is currently searching for an Interim Pastor and Ed will be with us until that Interim is found.
