Our Pastor

Rev. Dr. Lewis J. Hiserote

Our senior pastor, Lew Hiserote and his wife Margie, came to First Church (July 1, 2012) having served the Clinton United Methodist Church for three years. Previously he was pastor at Marlton UMC for 13 years. Lew & Margie are proud parents to Ryan, Aaron, and Kaitlin. Ryan, an officer in the US Air Force, completed a Master's degree in Aeronautical Engineering. He is married to Corrie and they parent two beautiful children. Aaron currently works for a computer firm in Burlington County; he and wife Beth recently had their first child. Kaitlin completed the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Boston University and is a physical therapist in Boston. She and husband Eric are helping establish a new church in South Boston.

Pastor Lew graduated from Houghton College with a BA in Religion in 1978. He and Margie moved to Kentucky in 1979 and Lew graduated with a Master's of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary in 1982. He later returned to Asbury for a Doctor of Ministry degree, graduating in 1999. Pastor Lew is an ordained elder in the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church and has enjoyed full-time ministry for 33 years. Margie has a BSN degree from the School of Allied Health Sciences (Jefferson University) and is a registered nurse.

Pastor Lew's hobbies and interests include building computers, bicycling, gardening, woodworking, and construction, kayaking, camping, issues in science and technology, and working out in the gym. Lew and Margie enjoy being outdoors, visiting the Jersey shore, and traveling in remote areas. Most of all, they enjoy being grandparents!
