God's Exceptional Ministries (GEMs)
Together in Mission: Be a Partner
God’s mission and the work of the Holy Spirit are at the heart of these three strategic locations in our Synod. God is calling us to partner with them as they minister to people facing aspects of poverty related to housing, education, income, employment, healthcare, and immigration. Let’s pray and learn from them about answering God’s call for inclusion, diversity and social justice. Also consider starting a partnership relation with these communities of faith now.

Become a Mission Partner!
Mission Partners are congregations linked together in dynamic relationships to empower and expand this outreach ministry. Through supportive relationship, these congregations share in the excitement of proclaiming God’s love. Mission Partner congregations offer the gifts of prayer, leadership and financial resources to new mission starts. Individuals can also offer prayer and financial gifts over periods of time so that developing congregations can have the resources needed in their first years to establish a firm base as they witness to Jesus and build new communities of faith.
Congregations enter into a mutual agreement with a mission congregation to give and receive Prayers, Presence and Presents - the three P’s of Mission Partnership.
Contact Rev. Maristela Freiberg or call 201 407 6000 to explore possibilities of mission partners with our new evangelizing congregations
