The New Jersey Benevolence Department in actuality is an extension of the National Benevolence Department. This is due to the fact that the four areas of need that receive assistance are both nationwide and statewide.
These areas of ministry are the following:
Hillcrest Children's Home
In Hot Springs, Arkansas, is a haven where a child having to leave home due to abuse, neglect, death of parents or other reasons finds comfort, care, love and training.
Highland Child Placement Services
A refuge for a single girl caught in the dilemma of an unwanted pregnancy. This facility is available to answer questions the girl, her family or her pastor may have. There is housing for the young woman during her pregnancy and offers of care and counseling. In addition, it assists couples who are looking to adopt a child.
A National Fund established to give financial assistance for churches or parsonages suffering damage from national disasters such as tornados, floods or earthquakes.
Aged Minister's Assistance (AMA)
A vital part of the department and presently assists some 500 ministers and their spouses. It covers medical expenses, housing and food for veterans of the faith who served in low-income circumstances. These Pentecostal trailblazers pioneered and subsisted on below-poverty income for much of their ministry, thus resources for insurance, medical expenses, Social Security and other necessities were not available.
The Sundays before Memorial Day and Thanksgiving, Assemblies of God congregations contribute for AMA and forward a check to the Benevolence Department in Springfield, Missouri.
If any credentialed Assemblies of God New Jersey Minister or spouse in retirement is in need of financial help, the BENEVOLENCE DEPARTMENT in Springfield, Missouri, is available to give consideration for assistance. Give me a call at: 732.458.5967. Help may be a phone call away!
