Modeled after the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference (SDPC), New Jerusalem Ministries (NJM) was birthed with the "hope and faith that the organization would focus on what was proclaimed in the fourth chapter of Luke,  to set captives free and to give liberty to those who are oppressed."  We, too, "seek to change the socio-political landscape for those in need as we continue our fervent quest and biblical directive to do justice."

With this calling, NJM boldly enters into the public square with an engaged prophetic imagination to work with clergy, organizational leaders and "everyday ordinary blues people" to bring about constructive change on behalf of vulnerable and marginalized populations in our community.  To date, we have focused on sexual and domestic violence issues; issues associated with mass incarceration and the "returning citizen" to community; and the ongoing challenges associated with poverty and its intersections with race and class.
