Welcome to the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance of Jersey City and Vicinity (Hudson County). The IMA is the oldest existent inter-denominational clergy organization in the City of Jersey City having begun in 1946. Today the IMA consists of 19 members representing Christian pastors and associates from churches of various denominatons and independent houses of worship throughout Jersey City, Bayonne, and North Hudson. The Alliance meets together monthly  (September-June). We invite Christian clergy to partner with us in ministry. The IMA will prove to be a place for mutual sharing, support, networking, and information. Those interested in joining our group should attend one of the monthly meetings, or contact any member of the Alliance for more details. “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens his friend” (Proverbs 27:17).
