New Mercy Community Church

About New Mercy Hackensack Church
The Bible reveals one irreducible fact: God is for broken people.

Passage after passage reveal a God who embraces the broken-hearted, the marginalized, the oppressed, the sick and the sinners. We at NMHC believe God has called us to place this foundational truth at the core of our ministry.

New Mercy Community Church launched on 10/10/10 as A Church for the Broken. Employing a unique, round-table team leadership model, this staff of colleagues and friends labored to bring the gospel into this region. We are a church made of broken people, that seeks to grow, welcome and serve other broken people, with the radical love Christ has shown us. Ultimately, this means we are a church called to love and embrace everyone. As a church, we are committed to an “open door” policy that serves our local neighbors and the global community in an effort to reveal the gospel's redemptive power in our lives and of those around us.

Round-Table Leadership: There is no question – Jesus Christ is the head of the church and our desire is to follow Him and become more like Him. The body reflects the strengths and weaknesses of its most senior leader. Recognizing this potential weakness in the traditional church model, the founders of New Mercy established the church with a round-table leadership paradigm: instead of a senior pastor, we have a team of multiple co-pastors who work in conjunction with senior lay-leaders. This group collectively functions as New Mercy's "senior pastor."

This team-based leadership structure is configured to maximize the leaders’ strengths while overcoming their weaknesses. Not only does this structure provide accountability but it also serves as a support group for those pastors and leaders, which is absent in many models of church leadership today. We believe this model achieves better overall health for the church.
