CONAM and the Native American ministry of presence
The NIC Committee on Native American Ministries (CONAM) says it's never too early or too late to hold a Native American Sunday service.
For the first time, six churches in the NIC received the One Matters Award presented by the Rev. Dr. Bener Agtarap, Path One Executive Director, at the 2017 Annual Conference.
Discipleship Ministries created the award in 2015 to lift up churches who have in recent years moved from zero baptisms and zero professions of faith into positive numbers and they redirected their focus toward intentional discipleship.
In addition to a plaque, each church received $1,000 to encourage the continuation of their work in discipleship.
