Meet our staff:
Santo Garofalo

Pastor / Church Planter

Pastor Santo

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.

Peter Eck

Associate Pastor

Pastor Pete

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.

Titus Ridgeway


Titus grew up in northern New Jersey as the son of the pastor of Hope Presbyterian Church. In high school, through his relationships with friends and mentors he developed a passion for discipleship and cross cultural ministry.  


In 2017, Titus began studying social work at Messiah College. His coursework led to him working with schools, churches and other organizations in the city of Harrisburg. It was through these experiences that he discerned a call to work in urban communities. He also became a part of Young Life, a ministry where he discipled high school and college students. After graduating in May 2020 and interning with New City Fellowship during the summer Titus chose to come on staff for the following year.
