Some of our most talented servant-leaders have an opportunity to work with the larger mission of Greater New Jersey by moving our mission forward at the agency and committee level.

The nominations committee is looking for committed disciples of Jesus Christ who have leadership gifts and experience and are ready to join us as we move into a new season of strategic ministry and continue to move our mission forward.

GNJ Keystone Measure: At least 50% of GNJ agency chairpersons are People of Color by June 2023 and the number of African American/Black and Hispanic/Latino clergy elders are doubled, and the number of all Clergy of Color is increased by June 2025.

Agencies and committees tend to meet four times a year, sometimes more often. As much as possible, committee leaders allow people to participate remotely through conference calls and web services. You can learn more about the purpose of the different boards and agencies by visiting the Connectional Table here.

Thank you for your willingness to assist the nominations team.
