Rev. Robert Harris-Pendelton, a Nyack College adjunct professor and a 2006 alumnus of Nyack’s Master in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) program, passed away on November 24, following the Thanksgiving Day meal with his family.
A funeral service for Rev. Harris-Pendelton will be held on Saturday, December 3 at Community Baptist Church in Englewood, NJ, which was his home church before being appointed the senior pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Boonton, NJ in July 2007. He was ordained by the Permanent Council of the North Jersey Missionary Baptist Association on December 7, 2003.
The 47-year-old Harris-Pendelton was a speaker this year at Nyack’s MSOL hooding ceremony for 2011 graduates. Passionate about teaching adult students, he served them as a mentor and coach—always inspiring them with God’s Word.
The campus community is encouraged to pray for his family—wife, Karla Harris-Pendelton and his children, Robyn and Kiana.
