The NACCC will be awarding up to $800 for registration and travel expenses to attend this year’s NACCC Convocation through The Howard Conn Endowment. Judge James and Leanne Rogers established this Endowment in memory of their long time pastor and friend. One of Rev. Conn’s favorite topics was the enduring significance of the Congregational Way of life. Ministers receiving these funds will share Reverend Conn’s belief that: “We think that God is too great to care what denominational labels we wear, but that God does desire that we join hands with all who love him/her in an effort to hasten the day of the Kingdom.”
To receive financial assistance a minister is required to fill out an application form and return it to the NACCC office by March 31, 2020.

One facet of the ministry of Fishers of Men is carried out through Evangelistic Medical Mission Crusades. These weeklong crusades meet medical, dental, nutritional and other physical needs present in poverty-stricken regions throughout Mexico, in order to more effectively address the spiritual needs of the people. The first crusade of 2020 took place at Peace Christian Church. This was the first time for many in the area to step into a Christian church and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was also the first time for several new volunteers to serve on a crusade, including Mau and Kimy, two children who have joined the Fishers of Men family. Fishers of Men also works closely with local churches and missionaries to ensure the follow-up and discipleship of the new believers that have opened their hearts and prayed to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
Funding Available to Attend Annual Meeting & Conference

Each year the NACCC encourages all member churches to send representation to the Annual Meeting and Conference. However, often the cost to attend the meeting is more than the church can afford.
Did you ever consider applying to the Providence Endowment? This fund was created to help small churches offset the expenses of sending a delegate to the AMC. The meeting this year is particularly special since 2020 marks our 400th year anniversary of American Congregationalism. And, to add to the excitement, the meeting is being held in Portland, Maine.
