4) Groups are the foundation of our fellowship on this new platform.  Groups fall into two categories:

a) Project Local, which is intended to bring members together from their geographical locations; and

b) Ministry Focus groups, which is intended to bring members together by means of shared interest in ministry.

It will take time and posting from members to stir up activity in these areas.  We encourage all members to encourage conversation.

  1. It would be rather disheartening if we as Christian ministers could not act civil and respect the slight difference in the tenants of each others faith. A spirited debate on issues is always welcome as long as one bases the core of the argument on sound biblical doctrine. There is no ambiguity in the word of God.

    • Disagreements are permitted; hence, article 4 stating: “Disagreements are permitted; however, they must be done tastefully. Everyone must treat one another with respect and Christian love.”

      That said, ambiguity is always around us. This is because ambiguity requires at least the following to exist:

      1) People; 2) Language; 3) Communication; 4) Perception; 5) Perspective;

      all contingent upon a) Knowledge, b) Experience; c) comprehension; d) Understanding.

      Ambiguity is defined as that which is “capable of being understood in two or more possible senses or ways.”

      Therefore, the existence of ambiguity concept (or even a word) rests entirely upon human understanding.

  2. Understood. Can anyone else help. I live in Colorado and came to Virginia to officiate my daughters wedding. Had everything complete and ready and when I got here the city court apologized and stated they had incorrectly told me I was ready to go. Now they need a letter of good standing from the NACM but I understand that take 10 days and it will be mailed to me home in Colorado.
    Any ideas how I can get something today?
    HELP!

  3. I understand the rules, standards and protocol. I can’t tell if my previous membership was transferred, because I don’t see something indicating “member since date”
    I found it useful to be able to tell others to check ordination status by referring them to the nacminister web page so they could verify it. How is this done now?

  4. As a Chaplain of nine years, I long to lear more of the LORD, I have learned much as a chaplain, with truckers, street people,home less, I am starved to learn much more, I understand, NEED PLACE TO MEET, time, please send me this information, I waite to hear from you Mr roger Niemeier!

  5. Chaplain Jones has read and understands the guidelines of this association. Looking forward to being a part of this ministry and hopefully being ordained. God bless
