Rev. Christopher Heitkamp

     Pastor Chris came to Harlingen Church in September, 2017, and was officially installed as the 21st Sr. Pastor in late October of the same year.

     Chris originates from Michigan, explaining his unhealthy devotion to the Detroit Tigers, but has lived in Central New Jersey for over 30 years.  He attended Raritan Valley Community College and Trenton State College (now The College of New Jersey) where he earned a BS degree in Elementary Education..  He has a MDiv degree through New Brunswick Theological Seminary (2010).  He taught elementary school for 16 years, after serving in the United States Marine Corps.  Through his time of service, he was able to travel the world seeing places like the Suez Canal, Kenya, Perth and Tasmania Australia.

     Chris came to know Jesus as a youth when God spoke to his heart through music.  Since then, he has always felt a call to help others come to understand how God can help us live more meaningful and enriching lives.

     With his wife, Amy, they have three sons and one daughter-in-law, one granddaughter, 3 granddogs.  

   Chris volunteers as the chaplain for the Montgomery Township Volunteer Fire Company #1, is a member of the Hunterdon County detachment of the Marine Corps League, and a part of the Montgomery Township Veterans Memorial Committee.  In his off-time, he enjoys reading, rucking (urban/military hiking), and barbecuing/grilling/smoking meat for dinner.
