Native American Ministry
The Committee on Native American Ministry (CONAM) supports Native American ministry and outreach, promotes awareness of the Native American community residing within the bounds of our annual conference and develops leadership among the Native community.
CONAM has two major ministries. One is a prison ministry that cares for Native American inmates and addresses their spiritual lives. The committee sends the inmates copies of a Native American Christian newspaper, which is published bi-monthly. The second major outreach ministry involves continuing support of the WINS program, which is sponsored by American University in Washington, D.C. The program offers classes and internships for qualified Native American students. CONAM members welcome the students to the area and serve as their mentors and contacts away from home.
