  1. NACM Member Minister JEAN SCHUMM provides insightful FREE WEBINARS with insights for Christian Parents (so Church Leaders/Pastors/Youth & Children Ministers can utilize these to minister to parents AND children).  As a Christian Mom herself with teens in public school, she developed OPERATION:PARENT to provide Christian Parents with practical tools for effectively countering the detrimental influences our children & teens face in this day!


2. NACM Member Minister PASTOR ARVIND DAVID LOLEKAR in Tumsar, INDIA:  Pastor Arvind joined the NACM earlier this year, after having met and conversed with NACM Exec Elder Rodger Niemeier by connecting through LinkedIn!  Pastor Arvind ministers with his wife and children, preaching the Gospel and discipling new converts to Christ in the Marharashtra region of India.  Sadly in March, Covid, which was rampant there, took his wonderful wife home to Jesus: but Arvind and his two grown children continue to minister.  The loss of his dear wife who was strong in ministry is still felt, but for the sake of his People who are in great need of salvation in Christ, he perseveres in ministering.

Response to the Gospel has been encouraging, and they disciple new converts, minister to orphans, and share resources and pray for healings.  The need is overwhelming, and persecution is strong.
