CHPC Pastors and Staff

Nancy Conklin

Pastor and Head of Staff

Coming to vocational ministry after a career in private practice litigation, Pastor Nancy brings 22 years of experience in youth and family, interim, and pastoral ministry.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Trenton State College (now the College of New Jersey), a law degree from Seton Hall Law School, and a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary.


The heart of her call to ministry, within and outside the walls of the church, is to foster spiritual growth from cradle to grave in the lives of people who hunger and thirst for deeper meaning and a greater purpose in their lives as children of God.
