Shiloh Baptist Association of NJ
The Shiloh Baptist Association of NJ was organized in 1958 at the Community Baptist Church of Englewood, NJ. A delegation of pastors led by the Rev Dr. A.M. Tyler sought to bring reform to the North Jersey District Missionary Baptist Association of NJ. When their agenda for reform was dismissed, these pastors and their congregations from Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic Counties . The Association meets twice per year and hosts a variety of events to provide fellowship and instruction for the member congregations.
United Missionary Baptist Convention of NJ, Inc.
The United Missionary Baptist Convention of NJ, Inc. was officially organized on Friday, January 11, 2016. The organizational meeting was called and convened by the Rev. Dr. Perry Simmons, Jr., Pastor of the Abyssinian Baptist Church of Newark, NJ. The meeting held at the Abyssinian Church. The call to organize came as a result of the Christian Fellowship Baptist Association Organization of NJ choosing to withdraw from the General Baptist Convention of NJ, Inc. These two district associations, churches connected with other district associations, and churches with no prior affiliation "united" to organize a new statewide Baptist entity wherein they could work together, equip local churches, be a source of advocacy and continue affiliation and membership with other national Baptist bodies (the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., and the Lott Carey Baptist Foreign Mission Convention). At the organizational meeting 46 churches were present and/or represented. A complete slate of officers for all departments was elected.

Star of Hope Ministries
Star of Hope serves the UNDER-SERVED in Greater Paterson in a number of ways but principally and most notably through its Member Network, a partnership of churches and organizations committed to serving the poor. Originally called the Church and Community Resource Center, the SOHM Member Network was launched in 1995. Seeing the extraordinary work being done in Paterson neighborhoods through local churches and community organizations, many with limited resource, and a few with little access to training, Star of Hope desired to come alongside to serve. That’s how the Member Network was born. For the past 19 years Star of Hope has provided material and educational resources and tools, consultation and networking opportunities for churches to meet a variety of needs.
