About Us

Originally called the “Gospel Pavilion,” the Boardwalk Chapel conducted its first services in July 1945. The work continues to this day with the efforts of trained staff and volunteers who proclaim the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ all summer long. The Chapel is a short-term mission and evangelistic outreach under the Presbytery of New Jersey within the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Read more about us here.
