Help When You Need It

As you can tell, we don’t update this page very often.  This website serves as a resource guide for churches considering the Open and Affirming (ONA) discernment process. We have recently uploaded a bibliography of books addressing the LGBTQ and Christian experience.  You can access that list on our Resource page.

This site can also help those who have already been designated an Open and Affirming congregation as you figure out how to live out your new resolution.

If and when your church is considering this process, check out the tabs up top, follow the links to the various sites that should help you answer some basic questions.  When you have familiarized yourself with this process, please call the Associate Conference Minister in the NJ Association office.  Their number is 973-748-7772  or you may email their office at
