Reverend Ernst Toller, 46, is the pastor of the historic First Reformed Church in upstate New York. Abundant Life, which owns the church and operates a modern self-named five thousand seat church overseen by Reverend Joel Jeffers, sees it as a “tourist” church or “souvenir shop” (its historical significance includes being a stop on the underground railroad before slaves crossed into Canada). This year marks the 200th anniversary of First Reformed, for which a large event is planned, though only at First Reformed itself, where dignitaries such as the governor and mayor will be present, while the event will be simulcast at Abundant Life.
