Succession

Pray for our Candidate Review Team

Curt Richmond

I was born in Williamson, WV. My first 18 years were split between living in West Virginia and then in Central New York. It was at the end of my first year at Syracuse University that I trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

I met my wife Dezra at Bible College where we earned Bachelor of Science degrees with dual majors in Bible and Intercultural Studies/Counseling. I then worked on “Wall Street” for 33 years. I traded exchange listed derivatives and stocks, and worked for small firms and big firms. We have been married for 35 years and have lived in Princeton since 1992. We have a wonderful daughter, son-in-law, and two grandkids. My in-laws live with us. They are great examples of faithfulness to God. Currently, four generations live in our home.

Denise Manheimer

I am Denise Manheimer. By God’s great grace, I became a Christian at at age 17. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from The College of New Jersey, which is where I met my loving husband, Ryan. I am a Case Manager at a small non-profit which provides services to homebound elderly and disabled individuals. I started attending Stone Hill Church in May 2014, and shortly thereafter became a member. Ryan & I currently serve in the youth, young adult and worship ministries. In my free time, I enjoy playing guitar, singing and hiking with our dog, Rocky.

Doug Megill

Doug first came to Stone Hill Church (then Westerly Road) as a college freshman in 1971.  The teaching of this church, along with the ministry of Princeton Christian Fellowship when he was an undergraduate, were life-changing then and continue to the present.  Since then he has joined the church three times and left twice.  He worked as an Emergency Physician and Hospital Administrator.  His longest absence was 1990 to 2015, when he lived in Western Pennsylvania.  In 2015 he retired from medicine and moved back to be the church’s Executive Director.  He lives in Princeton with his wife, Laura, and adult daughter, Anna. 

Eunju Chung

I was born in Seoul but grew up in the Poconos since the middle school years. I have been going to Sunday School ever since I can remember and a personal encounter with Christ occurred during my middle school days that initiated my walk in Christ. Boston is where I went for my undergraduate studies, met my husband and had our two wonderful boys. I have a Ph.D. degree in Neurobiology and currently work in the biotech industry.   

Ilner Polo

Ilner Polo was born in Carrefour, Haiti on March 11, 1967.  He completed both his primary and secondary education back in his native country and moved to Florida in 1985. In the Summer of 2000 Ilner moved from Florida to Pennsylvania. He was able to open his own woodworking business which allowed him to utilize his expertise and creativity. 

Ilner loves being a servant of the Lord. Although he was raised in a very strict Christian family, Ilner did not consolidate his relationship with Jesus until 2003. As a young adult he remained a Christian and attended church sparingly yet maintained his strong belief in God. In 2003 he began to attend church more regularly. He realized he needed a true home where he can truly profess and display his love of Jesus. This did not happen until late 2016 when Stone Hill Church embraced him.

James Martin

My name is James Martin and I am a 5th year Ph.D. student at Princeton University. I was saved at 13 and have a deep love for Christian Hip Hop and the local church. I thank God for the opportunity to serve on the CRT team and look forward to what God has in store for Stone Hill.

Jericho Cruzado

My name is Jericho Cruzado. I was raised in a Christian family from birth all the way in the Philippines, and have trusted Jesus since I was a child. As I get older, I see my faith maturing in ways that a teenage version of myself would have never fathomed. I have a degree in Psychology, am a Paid Media Director at a digital agency, and occasionally play with the worship team. I love my wife, and our new puppy- the adage "sleep is overrated" has never rung truer than when we got Wookiee!

Madhu Gammon

From the Blue Mountains of India to Stone Hill Church, l am on an adventure. Born in Coonoor and attended Christian schools in Chennai.  My husband Keith and I were blessed to be educated at Christian Medical College Vellore which directed us to work in areas of need in mission hospitals in South India.  “Come with me”. Our journey has been in learning to count our blessings and “seek first the Lord”, as my parents taught me.  God's grace continues. His gifts to us are Priya, Ajit, Matt, Bella, Leo, and our larger family and friends.   As family, we work together as a team especially with Ajit’s special needs. It has been a joyful experience through the struggles.  We are realizing that we all have special needs and in need of a Savior.

Martha Acosta

Hi, my name is Martha Acosta. I heard about Jesus Christ when I was in my last year of college, but I gave my life to him when I was contemplating divorcing my husband. The Lord revealed to me that I needed Him in my life to make such serious decision.  As a result of my obedience to Him, my husband and I have been married for 23 years, learning everyday to accept and respect each other with tenderness and love. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I found a job in the health insurance industry where I am currently working. I am so grateful to my Lord for my husband and my son. I keep on trusting our Lord and Savior in all aspects of my life.

Mary Castria

I am Mary Castria, I placed my faith in Jesus Christ as a young child. I worked in urban ministry in the NYC metro area with my late husband and have worshipped at Stone Hill/Westerly since 2002. I was a financial controller for 25 years and in retirement, I earned a degree in counseling at Westminster Seminary.  I volunteer at church and with mission agencies using my accounting skills and counselor training.  My volunteer life has taken me to Congo (DRC), Cameroon, Tunisia, Malta, France and (even!) North Dakota. My household includes two adult children and a teenage grandson.

Sean Schools

I am Sean Schools. I grew up the son of a pastor in a Christian home. I saw the hypocrisy in the church and wandered away from the Lord during my high school and early college years. But even in my darkness, when I had given up on everything, Jesus never let go of me! I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Film and I currently run my own video business. My wife, Laura, and I have 4 kids. I wonder about trying for more kids because, frankly, the world could use more people like my wife!
