Rev. Ron Christian

Yes, Rev. Ron Christian died suddenly this morning at the age of 51. He was found by a family member at the Christian Love Baptist Church of which he was pastor. Though Rev. Christian had no apparent health issues, the police do not suspect foul play. The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office will know the exact cause of death once an autopsy report has been completed.

Rev. Christian began his time at the Christian Love Baptist Church in 2000 and grew the congregation steadily. He was best known for serving others, and inspiring others to serve. “It didn’t matter who you were because Rev. Ron welcomed people from all walks of life into his church and into his own life,” says Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo, “He was a very dear friend and we will miss him greatly. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.” Many have also taken to the churches’ Facebook page to offer their condolences.
