Ministry Highlights:


To all tithers, contributors, and partners of Saint James! As we begin a new fiscal year, as the “undershepherd” of this phenomenal ministry, I want to encourage you to be as faithful as you can to God and yourself fiscally in 2018. A dime out of every dollar goes to God, and the next dime out of the dollar goes to your savings. I am wholeheartedly believing in the word of God written in Genesis 26:12, “Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold because the Lord blessed him.” I believe if you can trust God enough to sow consistently and faithfully in 2018, God will bless you and bless you indeed!


Did you know that you could text your tithe or offering to Saint James? Take advantage of Saint James’ “Text to Give,” by texting your contribution to: 973-878-0759. In the message section, type the amount you would like to give. For example: $100.00 and then hit send. This makes giving simple, secure, and convenient. Remember, the Lord loves a cheerful giver.

The Saint James "Dirt to Destiny" (D2D) Capital Campaign is approaching the end of its second year. Through the Capital Campaign, Saint James has been able to purchase the necessary property/land needed for construction without obtaining a loan. The campaign will also provide a tremendous boost in the pre-development cost associated with the vision. Pastor Slaughter is strongly encouraging all members to make a pledge in 2018 toward the capital campaign. If you can pledge $5, $10, $15, $20 a week or per month, it will help the capital campaign tremendously. If you need a pledge card, please look in the back of your pew, contact the church office or complete the form online at When making contributions to the capital campaign, please write it on your envelope or on the designated line of your envelope. Remember Acts 5:39. We believe God!
