Committee on Native American Ministries (CONAM) contacts

Many annual conferences have a Committee on Native American Ministries (CONAM), which seeks to advocate for ministry with and by Native Americans and to share the diverse culture, history and traditions of Native peoples. The committees determine the distribution of the Native American Ministries Sunday offering, coordinate the promotion of that Special Sunday, and monitor Native American ministries within the annual conference.
