  • Johann Berger (? - 1769)

  • J. Peter Muhlenberg (1769 - 1771)

    J. Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg (1746-1807) is reputed to have been the first 'ordained' pastor of St. James (1769-1771). Peter was a son of Henry Muhlenberg, one of the leading founders of the Lutheran Church in America. Peter is mentioned in the records of Pastor Schultz, who also may have shared duties as the first 'ordained' pastor of St. James. Zion Church in Oldwick, the oldest, continuous Lutheran congregation in NJ, also claims Peter Muhlenberg as its first pastor.Click on the links in the left column to learn more about this American Revolutionary War hero.
