It is the goal and strategy of I AM Ministries Church to offer ministerial resources to all members called into ministry through a high ethical level of standards, sound doctrine, and support in order that each member may show themselves approved being able to handle the Word of truth well.

The Berean Strategy:

Actst 17:11 "Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true."

Christian Ordination: Becoming an Ordained Minister

Testimonies of members say the biggest reason that most ministers choose our association is because they feel called of God to move forward in ministry.  Whether as a professional  or lay minister, their goal is to become a pastor, evangelist, chaplain, small group leader etc. or to start a church.  Naturally, they feel that they need ordination  to accomplish this work.  From there they search the internet to discover their options and quickly become unsatisfied with what they find.  For them, a piece of paper calling them a minister is not enough.  They only want to associate with other Christian ministers, and they are unwilling to compromise for anything less than "Christian ordination." Further, they want something more than just online Christian ordination.  While such may be acceptable, they have a real appreciation for the spiritual blessing known as "laying on of the hands."  After prayer and guidance from the Holy Spirit, they chose the National Association of Christian Ministers as their home.

Jesus said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest" (Luk 10:2, ESV).

NACM Minister Baptizing Students from Youth Group

"Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth." -Wesley
Many hospitals, nursing homes, jails, and shelters require ministers to be ordained before they are permitted to minister to their people.  Also, many U.S. states require licensing before ministers are permitted to perform marriages and funerals.  We desire to help these people answer God's calling on their lives.


Church Charters: Accountability in Ministry
church charters and ministry charters
Some ministers apply for membership with the NACM because they desire to start  independent or non-denominational churches or ministries.  However, because they are independent, they are not affiliated with a denomination.  Yet, they value the voluntary relationship of a "spiritual covering", and also understand that society appreciates this type of accountability. For these reasons, ministers seek church charters or charters for their ministries.  A charter demonstrates that their religious efforts are recognized by another Christian minister association for accountability.  We allow these ministers to maintain their independence while partnering in ministry accountability with them.
Ministry Mentor Program: Online Ministry Training

Another reason many come to our network is to participate in our exceptional peer ministry mentor program.  This course of learning is designed to develop quality ministers and leaders for the cause of Christ with online ministry training, interaction, personal development, and internships.  Those who complete this program gain valuable ministry experience, and may request a letter of reference from our organization's president on behalf of the NACM.  Further, the seal of the organization is conferred upon a letter of reference which may be used when applying for employment, before pastoral committees, or for positions of honor.
Ministry Network
Many already ordained ministers unite with the NACM ministry network because they share our values, and desire to help carry the vision. These people understand the need for ministers and desire to take part in developing people into ministers equipped with the Gospel of Christ.

"The simplest peasant, armed with the Gospel, is mightier than the Pope". -Martin Luther
