LUTHERAN EPISCOPAL ADVOCACY MINISTRY OF NEW JERSEY

ABOUT

 

The Lutheran Episcopal Advocacy Ministry of New Jersey (LEAMNJ) represents the official positions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Episcopal Church on issues of justice and social policy. The Director, the Bishop of New Jersey Synod, the Bishop of the Diocese of Newark, the Bishop of the Diocese of New Jersey, and the LEAMNJ Policy Board have identified particular issues in our state that are priorities where advocacy can make a difference.

 

While some of our advocacy efforts are focused on the executive and legislative branches of state government, county leaders as well as municipal governments are a foci; our greatest effort however is directed toward empowering congregations with the issues that embraces their Baptismal calling to strive for justice and peace in all the earth.

MISSION STATEMENT
