Mid-Atlantic Ministries

Mid-Atlantic Ministries (MAM) is the joint church planting and church health team of Classes Hackensack and Hudson.  The committee has three focus areas:

  • campus ministry
  • church planting
  • church renewal

Both classes have representatives on this team, which meets periodically to evaluate the progress of the ministries supported by both classes and review ministry goals for the future.  Currently, the classes help sponsor the following ministries together:

MAM has a unique structure as it is accountable to both Classis Hudson and Classis Hackensack.  (Details of this arrangement can be found in Appendix A of Classis Hudson’s Rules of Procedure).  It also works closely with Eastern Regional Ministries of the CRC’s Home Missions agency.
