Pastor Tilly

Held June 8, 2015, at the Newark Museum where volunteers from across the state were recognized, Pastor Tilly Giresi was nominated by Peggy Fischer of Sparta, NJ, for the NJ Governor’s Jefferson Awards in the Faith-Based Services category. The honorees take up the vision of Thomas Jefferson’s vision of being involved and serving in their local communities. Pastor Tilly’s favorite quote is “It is more blessed to give than receive”.
