Welcome to the Pilgrim Holiness Church of Millville, New Jersey, located in a tri-city area of southern New Jersey, the Garden State. From the beginning of our existence in fall of 1973 until the present, we have endeavored to be a lighthouse to this community. Our first pastor, Rev. Thelma Parker and co-worker Velma Stover, were responsible for leading several charter members in the organization and building of the present church on Mays Landing Road in a rural section on the outskirts of Millville.
In 1985, the present pastor, Rev. Gary Mills, replaced Rev. Parker following her retirement. Rev. Mills is a graduate of Hobe Sound Bible College. Along with the Millville church, he pastored two churches in upstate New York for a total of twenty-five years in the ministry. Rev. Mills is actively assisted by his wife, Karen, and their children: Yvonne, age 37, a Penn View Bible Institute graduate; Stephen, age 35, a PVBI junior; David, age 32; and Timothy, age 28.
Through many different changes and circumstances, we have repeatedly seen God’s promises fulfilled in keeping the light burning in this, the church of His planting. Although our congregation is not large, we enjoy a warm family atmosphere and fellowship among believers.
Our outreach includes: Sunday School for all ages, Wednesday evening prayer meeting and Bible study, monthly missionary services, a weekly Bible Club for children, a youth ministry, nursing home services, Junior Church ministry, new convert’s classes, as well as pastoral visits. We also have a fall and spring series of services to promote revival, visiting speakers periodically, and occasionally shared services and fellowship with our sister church in Erma, New Jersey. We look forward to seeing you in our services.
