Our Team

Willie Freeman

Counseling Pastor

My wife and I enjoy counseling young couples on marriage and child rearing. I enjoy spending time with people and helping them to face the challenges of life by applying God’s word.

Favorite Things/Hobbies

I enjoy reading different types of literature. I am also a long-standing Yankees, Mets, and Lakers fan.

About Me

I was born in a small town in the northeast corner of Georgia. I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, graduated from Princeton University, and attended Wake Forest University’s Graduate School of Business. I worked in commercial banking for over 35 years and concluded my career as a senior vice president and team leader for a large international bank. During my career, I sourced and negotiated large industrial facilities and acted as a portfolio manager handling multimillion-dollar projects.

Family Life

My wife Diana and I have been married for more than 40 years and we have three children and four grandchildren. We have lived in South Orange, New Jersey for more than 30 years. We enjoy spending time with our grandchildren and attending their soccer, basketball, and baseball games. We like visiting New York City and taking advantage of the culture that it offers (plays, museums, etc.). We also enjoy traveling and seeing different parts of the country and the world.

Favorite Scripture

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38 (NIV)
