On behalf of the full Rockland County Legislature, legislators John Murphy (R), Barry Kantrowitz (D) and Alden Wolfe (D) recently presented Reverend Dr. Michael Plunket and Lisa Plunket with Distinguished Service Awards in recognition of their service to others.

Dr. Plunket is the Pastor of the Risen King Alliance Church in New City and in partnership with Mrs. Plunket, has served the congregation and the Rockland community since 2004. The Plunkets have established adult education programs, intervention programs for at-risk youth and have traveled the globe to spread spirituality, to train pastors and missionaries. Together, the Plunkets have organized five churches in urban and suburban areas. Dr. Plunket is an Adjunct Professor as Nyack College and at the Alliance Theological Seminary.

“The Plunkets strengthen our community by facilitating spiritual friendships, by mentoring and supporting their congregants and others, and by encouraging good will among people of all faiths,” said Legislator Kantrowitz.
