2020 JHNJ Ministry & Community Outreach Highlights
In 2020, JHNJ realized how much a difference we can make in times of unprecedented uncertainty with God’s help, and how fast we can adapt and innovate amidst a myriad of unforeseen changing situations.

Restoring Hope in Our Community
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating global impact and from the onset Jesus House, NJ saw an opportunity to meet the needs of families in our community (internal and external). We took ownership by serving others, exhibiting the love of God, and truly making a difference in the lives of our church members and our external community. Please watch this very inspiring video to see how JHNJ, through meaningful partnerships, and with the faithful support of the membership and ministries has made a difference.

A Message of Hope…
Dear JHNJ Family & Friends,
This past week has been extremely difficult for me; it’s been quite painful to process the recent events that have led to the various riots across the nation and the world at large. It’s also been difficult to find the right words to say to express the pain we all feel. Nevertheless, silence is no better…
The death of George Floyd is heartbreaking and deeply troubling. I have reflected on the circumstances that led to his death and it is completely appalling. This deplorable act which has led to several protests across the nation and around the globe is a demonstration that such acts of inequality and brutality are completely unacceptable.
As a church we have already begun to address this atrocious act of injustice; we have been praying throughout this week during our corporate live prayers calling on the Lord to heal our land. We are praying for God’s divine intervention in this situation, as well as for Him to intervene in many such acts of injustice that seem to prevail in our nation. We know that ultimately God alone can heal our land.
Restoring Hope in COVID-19
