This web site is yours – it is designed to connect us to each other in a
variety of ways – information will be shared, networking taking place
but above all relations created for the honor and glory of God.
Presbytery of West Jersey is a living organism that consists of each
and every member of our congregations, friends who attend and support
ministry, relationships on social media and those who are assisted by
the mission and ministry of all of these people. The effects of the
ministry of even our smallest membership congregation to the largest are
far reaching – from serving our communities, our counties, the bounds
of the presbytery, to the synod, general assembly level and even to
global mission. Together we make a difference for Christ and his
church, for the honor and glory of God as we are led by the Holy Spirit.
mission of the Presbytery of West Jersey is to nurture the Christian
faith, life and common witness of our congregations and pastors. Open
to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, we seek fresh ways to
serve and grow; praying that in and through us God will make all things
new.” This is our mission statement but how we live into this reality
is an ever changing conversation.
The Presbytery of West
Jersey (WJP) seeks to glorify God in our life, ministry and mission. We
cover 7 counties including urban areas of Camden and Atlantic City. We
have farms, Pine Barrens, beautiful beaches (down the shore) and some of the
busiest roads in the nation. We cover 3,488 square miles from the
Delaware River to the Atlantic Ocean. With 57 churches speaking many languages
in worship on Sunday morning, the Presbytery of West Jersey is a diverse,
gifted group of people, churches and relationships. We welcome
innovation, new worshipping communities and permission giving in ministry
approaches. Our 9,265 members of these churches are involved in their
communities, in partnership with other churches in the presbytery and internationally
doing mission work worldwide. We are many things, but at our core
we seek to further the kingdom of God, by serving our congregations in
everything that we do.
WJP seeks to resource
our congregations and clergy. Through staff and committees and connection
to the larger church we look for ways to follow our Lord Jesus Christ.
