PASTOR ERIC ZEIDLER
Eric Zeidler was called into the ministry in 1991 as he developed skills in working with children. As a full time minister at Faith City Family Church in Delaware, Eric was stretched to oversee a Christian School from kindergarten to 12 grade. His other duties were developing a children's ministry and an outreach ministry to street kids in the inner-city. In 1997 Eric responded to the leading of God to go back to his home town of Penns Grove, NJ. There a youth ministry was developed called “Jump N' Jam” a face paced program that reached thousands all over the tri-state area. In 2001 Eric started his first church in Penns Grove called “Church Without Walls” because there was no building yet, and the street was his calling. From there several churches were developed, a food ministry, outreach street ministries and the passion to work with the Body of Christ everywhere. Eric has ministered in Haiti, Romania and up and down the East Coast preaching and reaching the lost for Jesus Christ. In 2014 the Penns Grove Carney's Point Library was given to the ministry to start what is now The River Church Penns Grove. In 2016 the Wesleyan Conference donated the second church to the ministry in Salem NJ. Eric is also an author with two books published, Silence of the Tongue, a testimony of Gods healing power through his bout with tongue cancer, and Off the Grid, a book on what to do when you can't hear from God. Eric is currently writing a new book entitled The Invisible Me, a testimony of how God has used him around the World by giving God all the Glory. Eric's vision is to see the Body of Christ work together in unity and power.
