Over the years it has become a regular question within our fellowship regarding how members may use our organization’s logo. This announcement is intended to clarify this so that members may enjoy sharing their association without the violation of any laws or policy.
1. The National Association of Christian Ministers is a US registered Service Mark which is protected on behalf of itself.
2. Members (in good standing) have the permission to publicly display their affiliation when it meets ALL of the following criteria:
How It Should be Used:
- It is used to bring glory to God.
- It is used to PROMOTE the name of the organization.
- It is used to show personal affiliation as a member of this organization.
How It Should Not Be Used:
- It is not used in a manner which might suggest that you officially represent the organization or its membership.
- It is not used in conjunction with any negative language about our organization.
- Example: If you author a blog which focuses on “exposing” T.V. evangelists, or our organization, our organization should not be mentioned anywhere within its content, while there may indeed be “wolves in sheep’s clothing”, the scope of our organization is not to witch-hunt and tear down. We do not want to feed the pride of the enemy of our souls by bringing attention to his work in connection with our work.
- It is not visually altered in any manner (without written permission from one of the Exec. Elders)!
- It is not used on any letterhead or documents which might be mistaken as ministerial credentials, artwork, stickers, or certificates!
- It is not used as a part of anything sold for profit (without permission, including Exec. Elder Pres.Michael Mooney)!
Additional Details and Uses
