Research Drives Direction

The EMU research and planning team identified 5 significant areas that stimulate anxiety among church leaders in the New Jersey Synod.


  1. The financial viability of the congregation

  2. Readiness for retirement

  3. The cost of health care

  4. Educational Loan debt

  5. Housing costs


Our research team will continue to monitor progress as we seek to address these concerns and diminish the stress that these matters create in our congregational systems.
