Elder Chuck Penn

Chuck was born into the OPC, and knew as a child that God was watching over him. God’s covenant, pardoning grace allowed Chuck—the sinner—to keep moving forward. After a brief detour from the reformed church in high school, Chuck met his wife Debby at Geneva College, and then professed faith and raised their four children in the Fair Lawn congregation where Chuck grew up. Eventually he served as a deacon there. After commuting into New York City for almost 40 years working as a video editor, Chuck works full-time from home in Westfield where he was ordained an elder and installed on Jan. 1, 2023. Chuck’s earnest prayer is that his odd set of experiences and abilities—and dependence upon God’s grace—will serve Christ and His church.
