Meet our staff:
Pastor / Church Planter
Pastor Santo came to the Atlantic City area with his family to set the groundwork for a gospel-centered, cross cultural, mercy minded PCA church in 2009. From a small Tuesday night Bible Study focusing on the core values of New City Fellowship of AC, a small band of believers gathered to help him carry out the vision.
Since then he has been blessed to see God establish regular Sunday morning worship services, a thriving summer Urban Ministry Team program and a spin-off non for profit Christian Community Development organization Hope For Atlantic City.
He received his B.A. from Covenant College, a M.Div. from Mid America Reformed Seminary and a D. Min. from Covenant Theological Seminary. Prior to coming to Atlantic City to plant NCF he served as Associate Pastor of Grace Reformed Pres. Church in Relay, MD and as solo Pastor at the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Duanesburg, NY.
He and his wife of 32 years, Mary Ellen, have two grown boys Collyn and Caleb.
After spending the first few years of his life in the Northeast, Peter grew up in a Christian home in Raleigh, North Carolina. He became a Christian at an early age through the ministry of his parents, pastors and church in North Carolina.
Following high school, Peter went on to be apart of a college ministry at Wingate University called Campus Outreach. There he was discipled by the campus staff guy and eventually came on staff with them upon completing college. Peter and his wife Katie were married in 2008 and worked with Campus Outreach and Christ Covenant Church (PCA) with 18-22 years olds in Charlotte, North Carolina for about 6 years. After finishing his degree at Reformed Theological Seminary (2014), Peter, Katie and their three small children felt the call to New City Fellowship of Atlantic City where he now serves as Assistant Pastor.
Alison grew up in a Christian home outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She became a Christian at an early age through the ministry of her parents, local church family and church camp. While studying graphic design at Edinboro University in Pennsylvania, Alison grew in her faith through the college ministry of the CCO. During the summer of 2008, Alison participated in the CCO's beach project where she was introduced to South Jersey beach life and racial reconciliation through the gospel.
After graduating college in 2010, Alison returned to New Jersey for a summer job and was introduced to New City Fellowship of AC. She began using her gifts and knowledge of design to serve the church. Three years later, Alison took a leap of faith and moved to South Jersey permanently, making NCF her church family and home. In 2021, she married her husband Raf and they decided to serve the Lord together in Atlantic City.
