Elder Ephraim Rittenhouse

Elder Rittenhouse, of Delaware, served several churches in Delaware and Maryland for over forty years. He had a very large private correspondence besides writing a great number of letters for publication on almost every subject that could be thought of. Very few of our ministers have written so much as he did. He possessed a special gift in the manner of writing comforting, encouraging letters. Few such gifts have been bestowed on the church.

Elder Rittenhouse was regarded as one of our most able ministers, one whose preaching was always interesting and instructive, a man of good judgement and wise counsel. It is regrettable that our present generation has hardly heard or read of him. We hope to re-introduce this dear servant of Jesus Christ.

Below you will find links to the some of the editorial writings of Elder Rittenhouse. We hope to have a large collection of his writings on this page.
