Carmel extends a warm welcome to Rev. Peter Sulyok, our Transitional/Interim Pastor. He and his family moved here from Long Island in late April, and Pastor Peter began participating in our online worship in early May.
The selection of Rev. Sulyok as Carmel’s Transitional/Interim Pastor and Head of Staff was announced to the congregation in mid-March of 2020. Rev. Sulyok, or Pastor Peter, completed nine years as pastor/head of staff at Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church on the eastern tip of Long Island. He also brings experience as a pastor/head of staff in Binghamton, NY and as an interim pastor on Long Island and in New Jersey. His additional experience includes serving as Moderator of the Presbytery of Long Island and serving PC(USA) for 12 years as Associate and Coordinator for the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy for the General Assembly Council.
Rev. Sulyok’s family includes his wife, Rev. Jeannine Frenzel and son Mark Frenzel-Sulyok. They join daughter Lydia and son Jared, daughter-in-law and first grandchild, who already live in the Philadelphia area. Rev. Sulyok is looking forward with anticipation to his time at Carmel and to being closer to his family and granddaughter.
