NACM NOV 2019 ANNOUNCEMENTS

#1 )  NOTICE: All NACM ministers must complete the Yearly Minister Renewal Form in order to remain “in good standing.”

Annual renewal is the process of confirming a minister’s connectedness with their ministerial fellowship.  Among the many reasons for its necessity, here are a few core points.

It demonstrates that the individual:

    • Is not deceased.
    • Is not incarcerated.
    • Is not a registered sex offender.
    • Is actively pursuing ministry.

Makes themselves accountable to their fellowship.

    • By keeping their contact details up to date.
    • Participating in fellowship (by example attending local gatherings, offering prayer, replying to discussions, knowing their local elders, etc.)
    • Seeking daily by God’s grace to live in a manner pleasing to our God.
    • Responding to our administration should someone report them for unethical conduct.  And in such a case, agreeing to have our administration guide them through resolution.

Thereby, making the minister regularly, and duly licensed as an independent minister in “good standing” with the National Association of Christian Ministers.
