Congregational Culture of Generosity
The EMU.NJ (Excellence in Ministry, Unleashed) initiative was established in January 2016 to uphold the great gift of ministry that rostered leaders provide in service to our Lord Jesus Christ through the New Jersey Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
EMU.NJ finds value in the significant relationships that exist between rostered leaders and congregations and is therefore established to strengthen those relationships so that ministry may be enriched in ways that are unencumbered for both rostered leaders and congregations. Workshops for treasurers, finance and stewardship teams are planned. Clergy compensation consultations, ministry transitions, and congregational generosity ventures will round out a holistic approach to the training and support of leaders in the church to create a congregational culture of generosity in which we capture the freedom to:
Live, Love, Lead Generously
