Resurrection Liturgy for Pastor Mac Sunday, August 20th at 3pm

Rev. Dr. Murdoch MacPherson–Pastor Mac–passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 13, 2017, surrounded by his family and pastor at Morristown Memorial Hospital. He was 74.  The Resurrection Liturgy was on Sunday, August 20th at 3:00pm at Faith Lutheran Church, 524 South Street, New Providence.

On May 20, 1970, Pastor Mac was ordained in Ocean City, NJ. For almost five decades, Pastor Mac spent his life as a faithful servant of God, determined to help all those in need and speak for those who had no voice. From the mountains of Africa to the hills of Tennessee to the streets of Newark, Pastor Mac was constantly reminded of God’s grace through a ministry that enabled him to share the hope and promise of God with all of God’s children.

A life-long student, Pastor Mac received his Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers University, his Master of Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia and his Doctor of Ministry from the Graduate Theological Foundation following studies at Notre Dame and Ancillia. He strove to pass on his knowledge through countless bible studies and forums and served for more than three decades as a guest lecturer at the College of St. Elizabeth. He was a Holocaust Resource Educator at Drew University and the College of St. Elizabeth, where he also served on the Advisory Board for the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education.

In 1970, Pastor Mac was called to Grace Lutheran Church in Trenton, NJ, until his duties were expanded with a parish partnership between Grace and St. Bartholomew where he served both congregations. In 1976, Pastor Mac was called to Trinity Lutheran Church in Dover, NJ, where he remained until 1982. His final calling was to Faith Lutheran Church in New Providence, NJ. He has served Faith passionately and selflessly for almost 35 years.
