WELCOME TO THE GREATER CENTRAL JERSEY CLERGY ASSOCIATION
The Greater Central Jersey Clergy Association is a council of churches and Houses of Worship of different denominations, committed to promoting change, particularly to the Plainfield Area and Vicinity.
We not only promote change, but we collaborate together to find solutions to the many problems that plague our community; by partnering with local government, businesses, media, and our residents.
In 2009, under the leadership of Bishop N. Leon Harrell, the Board agreed that we should change our name from The Concerned Urban Clergy of Plainfield and Vicinity, to The Greater Central Jersey Clergy Association, Inc. Our goal was to add a new image to the association.
It was at that time we expanded our boarders and added non clergy to our organization. It was an opportunity for our service providers to be an asset to our constituency. In addition, churches and service providers started joining as far North as New York and as far south as South Jersey.
Currently, the GCJC has a weekly broadcast over radio station WKMB, 1070am The Harvest Family Network. There we host and entertain guest(s) who discuss and or offer programs to benefit the community. We invite our religious community along with city resident to call in at (908) 822-WKMB.
We hold monthly meeting every first Tuesday of the month. There we discuss ways to implement our various initiatives. Each meeting is hosted by different religious leaders within the community who provide a light lunch, warm hospitality, and wholesome and relevant topics.
Each year the GCJC sponsors a time of celebration of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday. Both civic and national officers have attended along our celebrated GCJC Community choir. The service is capped with a respected clergy delivering the homily celebrating the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our web site www.gcjc.org provides a user friendly opportunity for clergy and non-clergy to join, using either your credit card or pay pal. Members will have access to the latest information relative to the community and public events. The Greater Central Jersey Clergy is Clergy reaching out to the Community!
