Carmen Ministries has a goal to provide every youthful offender the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel, to grow his or her relationship with Christ, and to become a responsible, contributing adult. This is accomplished through Bible study, 1:1 mentoring/spiritual fathering, small-group work, encouragement and ongoing support/assistance in the pursuit of continuing education at all levels and assistance in transitioning out of “the system.” Carmen Ministries works in correctional facilities throughout New Jersey with a focus on the Warren/Hunterdon County area.
Tony Wood, the founder of Carmen Ministries, shares what this ministry offers young men and women: What Carmen Ministries Has Done for Me. Read the May 2011 testimony from a young man that he has supported.

Community-Wide Thanksgiving at Trinity
The Thanksgiving program is a community-wide, free dinner hosted by Trinity every Thanksgiving Day. It serves all those in the area and our congregation who would have been alone, have a financial burden, or want fellowship with others during this day of giving thanks for our many blessings. There is a buffet-style dinner of delicious traditional Thanksgiving foods served from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Family Promise of Warren County and the Interfaith Hospitality Network
Family Promise of Warren County and the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) address the immediate needs of homeless families in our communities. Family Promise of Warren County and IHN extends compassion, care, and hope to families through a network of host and support congregations and individual volunteers. Host congregations provide overnight lodging, meals, and hospitality to three to five families (up to 14 individuals) from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. A professional social worker at the IHN Resource Center in Oxford where the guests spend the day provides intensive case management and services to help families to become self-sufficient.
