I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.  -2 Timothy 4:1, 2

Our Pastor:  Rev. Edward Suffern
Pastor Ned Suffern has been serving as pastor here since November of 2009.   In 1980, he received a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from Grove City College in Pennsylvania, having also taken a junior year abroad studying at the University of  East Anglia in England, where he was a Bible study leader for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. He taught chemistry, physics and Bible for four years at Stony Brook School on Long Island, New York.  He also had experience as Program Director for two summers at Christian Service Brigade Frontier Camp in Lovell, Maine.  Spending a lot of time in Maine in his youth developed a love of swimming in Ned, which he now pursues as he is able in Lake George, and while on vacation, in the Atlantic Ocean.
 
In 1985 Ned married his wife Lois, soon after she finished her Bachelor's degree in elementary education and music.  Earning the Master of Divinity degree from New Brunswick Seminary in 1987, Pastor Ned served as Associate Pastor of Youth, Education and Evangelism at Sixth Reformed Church, North Haledon, NJ, until 1993. He and Lois then began fourteen years of pastoral ministry with the congregation, youth director and leaders of Hope Reformed Church, Clifton, NJ.   After that, Pastor Suffern served through October of 2009 as Preaching and Teaching Pastor of First Reformed Church in Orange City, Iowa, where he worked with the congregation and staff to advance their mission: "Glorify God, Know Christ, and Make Him Known."

 
Working together with the session, diaconate and congregation of RRPC in the ministry of Jesus Christ is a joy to Pastor Ned and his family.    Ned and Lois have been blessed with three daughters, Kathryn, Rachel, and Johanna, and a son, John. The purpose of the Suffern family is to serve Christ whatever they do and wherever they go.  Lois has taught piano privately for more than twenty-five years and is a certified elementary school and music teacher.  She teaches kindergarten at Spa Christian School in Ballston Spa.   Kathryn is married to Matt Ulrich who serves as the Director of Children's Ministries at the Church of the Ascension in Pittsburgh .  God has blessed Ned and Lois with two grandsons, the children of Matt and Kate.  Rachel graduated from Grove City College studying English and Christian ministries, and she works in the medicare billing department of Glens Falls Hospital.  She is active in Pioneer Girls and the RRPC choir, and plays euphonium with the Lake George Concert Band.  Johanna is an accomplished violinist who graduated with a double major in mathematics and music from Grove City College. She is a fourth grade teacher at Regents School in Charlottesville, Virginia.   John's passion is baseball.  He plays the cello and percussion instruments, and he has been a leader in RRPC's Brigade group.  He is a sophomore studying engineering at Geneva College.

Our members at RRPC:  Full-time staff serving the Lord wherever they live, work and play !
 
Redeemer Reformed Presbyterian Church is a congregation that seeks to glorify God and enjoy him forever.  As a church family, every member has a role through prayer and service in advancing the three-fold mission of our congregation:
  • Redeemer Church seeks to worship God reverently and sincerely.
  • We are dedicated to building up this congregation of God's adopted sons and daughters in the faith of Jesus Christ. 
  • We are determined to bring the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ to a lost and broken world so loved by God. 
The way to accomplish this mission is the unfettered preaching, teaching and living out of God's Word, the inerrant scriptures.
 
Pastor Ned's desire is that as Redeemer Reformed Presbyterian Church experiences a life of transparent dependence upon our sovereign God through prayer, God will bring glory to His name as we make disciples, starting here in the foot-hills of the Adirondacks, and reaching to the ends of the earth.
