Living the way of Jesus together.
We currently have three community groups meeting in Mercer County.
MEET THE LEADERS
Brenda & Bryson
Brenda & Bryson Sewell moved to Princeton from the Midwest four years ago so that Bryson could pursue his PhD in Classical Studies at Princeton University. Bryson specializes in the history of ancient Greek and Brenda is a stay-at-home-mom and a part-time communications consultant. They live in Kingston, NJ and feel honored to share their home and their lives with the Monday night Community Group that they co-lead with Ryan Pearce. They enjoy watching their son discover new things and getting out into nature.
Gabrielle & Tom
Gabrielle & Tom Dearduff met at Princeton Seminary in 2017 as Master of Divinity students. They are a newlywed couple who are thankful for the community of young couples that surround them at Ecclesia. Tom is enjoying fulltime ministry at Ecclesia, while Gabrielle works for the Seminary at which she is finishing her degree. She is preparing for a career in social work and community development. They both dream of someday moving to the highlands of Scotland. Gabrielle and Tom lead the Wednesday night Community Group.
Sarah & Rich
Sarah & Rich Weidel live in Titusville, NJ with their two boys and host the Friday night Community Group. Rich and Sarah were part of the founding team at Ecclesia and are members of the board. They began dating on Halloween night of their freshman year of college (2005!). Since then, they’ve lived together in six different cities up and down the east coast, returning to the Princeton area in 2014. Sarah leads worship at Ecclesia and works as a Business Strategy Director at NRG Energy during the week. Rich is the CEO of Princeton Mortgage and serves on the board of local housing non-profit HomeFront.
