Lutheran Episcopal Advocacy Ministry

of New Jersey


The Lutheran Episcopal Advocacy Ministry of New Jersey (LEAMNJ) is the Advocacy arm of the New Jersey Synod of the ELCA. Guided by the principles agreed upon in the ELCA Social Statements this ministry has been speaking out for justice and peace for the last 25 years. In 2015, LOGM became a shared ministry between the New Jersey Synod, the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey, and the Episcopal Diocese of Newark. The overarching goal of the new entity, LEAMNJ, is to serve as a powerful public witness of faith through advocacy, representing nearly 80,000 people in 450 parishes in New Jersey, backed by the national Lutheran and Episcopal Churches, reflecting over 8.7 million adherents in the United States.


The director of LEAMNJ is Rev. Sara Lilja, who has served in this ministry since 2011.  To see more about the initiatives that LEAMNJ is currently working on or for updates, please check their website, , or follow on Facebook.
