Rodger Niemeier, Exec Elder (29)

Born 1952 in Pittsburgh, PA; Born AGAIN in 1972 at Kent State University, OH.Education: Westminster College PA ( BA in Bible & English, 1974); Asbury Theological Seminary KY (MDiv in Pastoral/Cross-Cultural Missionary, 1986)Ministries: New Wilmington UMC, PA (youth/ass't pastor: 1972-4); Bowersville UMC, OH (ass't pastor: 1975-6); Brookville United Brethern (Adult Teacher: 1976); Life Anew Ministries, OH (urban residential recovery ministry: ass't pastor/street ministries/nursing home ministry/jail ministry 1975-1981); Dayton Christian Schools, OH (Bible/English teacher: 1976-1981); Short Term Mission trips in Nome, AK (Inuit (Eskimo) outreach: 1975 - 1980); Nicholasville C&MA, KY (ass't pastor; young adults; church plant: 1982-86); Seattle Intertribal Alliance Church (C&MA), WA (Native American church plant: 1988-2001); Hands of Creation Native Artists Co-op, Seattle, WA (director - cross-cultural outreach: 1994-2002); Immigration Detention Center, WA (Bible study outreach: 1994-1995); Seattle Indian Health Board (Thunderbird Inpatient Treatment Ctr), WA (chemical dependency recovery teacher; vocational counselor: 1999-2013); Eagle Wings Native American Ministries, WA (founding director: abuse/chemical dependency recovery: 2003-present); National Association of Christian Ministers, Online Ministerial Association (Vice President/Executive Elder: 2010 to present).Ministry focuses: Bible Teacher; Pastoral; Counseling (chemical dependency & abuse recovery); Educator (Christian living; ministry training); Administrator; Cross-cultural Missionary (Native Americans/Indigenous People).Testimony: Though raised in a "nominal" Christian home, I did not come to Christ until my first year at college, at Kent State Univ. in 1972, amidst Vietnam War protests and riots on that campus. Inner emptiness drove me to seek God, and I came to Christ in my university dormitory room on my knees after reading the Gospel of Matthew for the first time. There Christ made Himself and His love clearly known to my heart. Immediately I lost interest in architectural studies and transferred to a Christian college, majoring in Bible and English (writing). I was fortunate to have a wonderful Methodist minister to mentor me in those early growth years, and soon sensed the Lord's leading to pursue more biblical training through seminary. After 2 disappointing experiences at 2 seminaries, I got involved in an inner city, live-in street ministry that helped young people come to Christ out of drug addictions. I also became a secondary Christian school teacher for a few years, did 5 short term missions in outreach ministry to Eskimos in Alaska, got married and had my first and only son.Later I became convinced I needed to complete my seminary training, finding Asbury Theological Seminary in KY: no disappointments this time. The training for pastoral and cross-cultural ministries was excellent, as well as being a tremendous time for my own spiritual formation. I met Christian & Missionary Alliance people there and felt led to join them, preparing to plant a church for Native People, I hoped, in Alaska. However, circumstances placed me in Seattle, WA, instead, and with a ministry partner we planted an urban Native church (1988). This challenging work continued for 16 years. Over those years, the Lord showed us that there was a debilitating, unresolved Native problem that was not being addressed: the widespread experience of Native People with past abuse related to having the highest alcoholism rater of all people in the USA. . As a result, by God's grace I, and a couple Native Christians from our former Seattle Intertribal Alliance church, started a new ministry: Eagle Wings Native American Ministries (2003). Though officially "retired", my wife (recovering from 30 years of domestic violence and abuse - father, former husband) and I continue to minister to area Native People in recovery from past abuse and chemical dependency.In 2010 I came across the NACM seeking Christian ordination. Later that year I accepted the invitation to be an Executive Elder and Vice President. I greatly enjoy ministering to fellow ministers and receiving encouraging ministry from them!

  1. Brother Kennith, good to hear from you.  The Chaplaincy course is there when you're able to return; not a problem.  I know things come up and our priorities to the Lord, family and ministry come first.  So the course is designed to be self-paced for this very reason.  I hope all is well and of course we look forward to interacting again with you back in the course.

    And thank you, too, Kennith, for passing on this chaplain opportunities to Liberty as well – please do that!  (They may have access to the same announcements as I do).

    See you in the course when it works for you, Brother.

  2. Hello Elder Niemeier,

    With all that has been a challenge it is important let you know I remain balanced and will continue to complete the chaplaincy program. 

    I review the Job post and will refer and there are student at the Liberty University shopping around for opportunity .As stated I will send you an email to update you on my status. I have enjoyed my membership thus far. I hope to discuss with you your thoughts about volunteer chaplain, so I can meet school objectives. 

    This an excellent  forum to find work.

     

    Thank you,

     

    Kennith Harvey

    Pastor
