Inside Pastor Randy's Head

Randy has over 12 years ministry experience, and has a college degree in Psychology/Urban Studies from Eastern University and a Masters of Divinity from Palmer Theological Seminary. He is an active member of his community and serves as a member on the Pitman Church Council and PRIDE Alliance of Pitman. 



Pastor Randy Van Osten is a father of two boys, a husband, an entrepreneur, and a hippie at heart.  Yes, he drives a VW camper he named Dorothy.  He has a passion for Jesus and loves talking about Jesus with others.  He loves the woods and playing with his boys.  He ends many days by watching a movie with his family.  Born and raised in South Jersey, Randy and his wife Tina own the Treehouse Cafe and Coffee Shop in Audobon NJ.  His family moved to Pitman in 2017 and have enjoyed being a part of this awesome community.  Favorite drink is coffee (he'd love to share a cup with you).  Favorite food: Sweet Potatoes and Bacon (together or separate).

"What's up?!" from Rev. Ran!

 Thank you for checking out our website at The First Baptist Church of Pitman.  We hope that the information that you find here is helpful and gives you more insight about who we are and what we are about. 

 The best way to get to know us is to join us on a Sunday morning for one of our worship services at 9:30 or 11:00 or join us for one of the activities listed on our calendar.  We would love for you to join us! 

 We believe in serving the community in whatever way we can.  Also, we believe that we are called to dig deep in our faith and in our relationship with God and each other in order that we may truly love our neighbor.  We try to create opportunities to do both.   

 If you have any questions or would like to know more, it would be my pleasure to talk with you.  Please reach out via email or give me a call at 856-589-2266.

 Peace, Love, and Faith,

 Pastor Randy
