If you were unable to attend the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC) Annual Meeting in Cleveland or would like to share some of what you experienced please see the videos on the NACCC website .

The videos include three Bible Lectures by the Rev. Dr. Brett Younger; the Congregational Lecture by the Rev. Dr. John Tamilio; the workshop—The Promising Future of Small Churches by the Rev. Dr. Chuck Warnock; the panel discussion—What’s Working Well in My Church, featuring Patty Smith, Year Round Delegate, Berwick Congregational Church, Berwick, Iowa, the Rev. Justin Nierer, Sandstone Congregational Church, Jackson, Michigan, and the Rev. Donald Olsen, Plymouth Church, Wichita, Kansas; and the workshop—Why The Congregational Story Matters by Peggy Bendroth, Executive Director of the Congregational Library & Archives.

We hope these videos can be helpful to you and your church.

Mark Jensen Honored at NACCC Conference
Rev. Dr. Cindy Bacon Hammer, Chair, Board of Directors
The Annual Meeting and Conference is over and now it is back to work for the NACCC Board of Directors! At the meeting we were honored to present the Board of Directors Citation to Rev. Dr. Mark Jensen for his service to the NACCC, as well as the local church. It is always a pleasure to recognize those who have gone above and beyond. 

Next on the agenda for us will be continuing our work from June on how to build stronger relationships with our churches. Within that context, one of the main tasks will be to find intentional and consistent ways to let the local church know what the NACCC has to offer and how the Association can support them in ministry. 

If you have any suggestions on how we can better serve our local churches, please let us know .
