The Sons of New Jerusalem


Mens Ministry

“Striving for the success of at-risk males through biblical and life-skill training.”

Mission Statement


The mission of the Sons of New Jerusalem, men’s ministry, is to advance the education and life-skills of vulnerable and at-risk males and guide them toward success. We accomplish this through our SONJ Education Scholarship Fund, Bible Study and Spiritual Guidance, Life Skills Training Workshops, Mentorships, and our Dress for Success initiatives. We strive to help and minister to our mentees' emotional, physical, and spiritual needs by spreading Christ's message through words and deeds.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
