SEPT 17 2022 ALABAMA STATE GATHERING (Neighboring States Welcome)

ATTENTION NACM MEMBERS!  If you have been desiring laying-on-of-hands to confirm your NACM Ordination, Come to the SEPT 17th ALABAMA (Mississippi & nearby States) NACM GATHERING!

If you live or happen to be coming through Central Alabama area- Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Montgomery to Cullman , you may just be less an hour/hour 1/2 from Alabaster...

We are hosting the 2022 Alabama Fall Gathering at the Siluria Baptist Church, 10696 Hwy 119 Alabaster Alabama! We have had folks drive 3-4 hundred miles before, as we do not expect this to be the normal, but if you are an Alabama or Mississippi member looking for fellowship and encouragement we got that!

RV’ERS- There is a HUGH convenient parking lot at this church. Not a boondocking location though, I don’t think…

Hey, who is going to host a RV Gathering??

Currently we have 10 attending, which is a good bible belt crowd (you small church southern pastors know what I’m talkin’ bout!) But we do have room and time for about 50, so this is me shaking the bushes, going into the highways and hedges and compelling you- “COME IN!”
-Lunch will be sent for, so we are asking that a small gather fee be received of $15. per attendee to cover food and expenses.
So you ask: “What can we expect at this Gathering?”
this could get a little redundant so I am posting the flyer with this INVITE!
We do look forward to seeing y’all there!
Let us know you are coming, by registering by paying your gathering fee at;

Rodger Niemeier, NACM Executive Elder (49)

After growing up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh PA in a church-going, moral family, I went on to college (Kent State Univ. 1970) for architecture; but I was also introduced into the drug-using, drinking/partying culture of the late 60's, early 70's. Yet it was there that I came to Christ in 1972; the more I sinned, the more the emptiness within.  A man was passing out paperback New Testaments on the campus, and though I grew up churched, I never really read the Bible myself or heard the true Gospel.  After reading through the Gospel of Matthew and experiencing conviction by the words of Jesus ("What shall a man profit if he gains the whole world but loses his soul", I just knew He died on that cross for my sinfulness.  When I read that He was risen and alive, I went to my knees and asked Him to forgive me and make Himself known to me.  He did!  I experienced a tremendous sense of love I'd never felt before.  Immediately I felt called into ministry and completed my training in a Christian college and then seminary (Asbury Theological Seminary: MDiv with emphasis in pastoring and cross-cultural missions).

I also had a calling to minister among Native People.  Completing seminary, I followed His lead from Ohio to Seattle, Washington, to plant a Native church: which by His amazing grace, we did (with my wife and son, and a few Native Christians with the same Vision).  That lasted from 1988 to 2002; then we regrouped into a ministry called Eagle Wings Native American Ministries, with a clearer focus in ministering for recovery from past abuse and chemical dependency. This ministry is continuing currently.

So have been in ministry 50 years, by His grace.  I came across the NACM in 2010, was impressed to join and soon after became Vice President and Executive Elder along with NACM President and founder, Rev Michael Mooney.  It has been an amazing and blessed adventure to minister to fellow ministers!  I love to encourage in fellowship, discuss theological matters as well as present day challenges in ministry, and teach ministry skills courses. I also oversee our NACM Elders and our Chaplaincy Program.

I learn so much from NACM member ministers I get to know and engage with!  This is truly a remarkable fellowship and ministerial association.  I am humbled by the testimonies of how the Lord has worked in so many lives and called so many into ministry.  Will a huge blessing to be part of an organization of Christians who love the Lord, want to be used effectively by Him to reach others and pastor His Flock!
