Choosing a faith-based community makes a difference. United Methodist Communities was founded and remains grounded as a Wesleyan, faith-based, retirement, health and welfare ministry affiliated with the Greater New Jersey Conference of the United Methodist Church. Honoring our fathers and mothers lies at the heart of our faith tradition. A major differentiator that sets us apart from our for-profit competitors is that our Board of Directors and corporate leadership are guided by our sense of mission and our core values, and not by investors seeking dividends. Earnings that exceed our expenses go back into developing, maintaining and expanding our ministry.
