The Committee on Native American Ministries (CONAM) is a resource and advocate for Native American ministries within the Florida Conference. We support local churches to connect and equip congregations in making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. The Committee promotes Native American awareness throughout the Conference through United Methodist Women, United Methodist Men, United Methodist Youth Fellowship, etc.
We promote our Native American Culture and ministry by speaking at local churches and other United Methodist events. In addition, we provide a leadership resources to local churches and ministries to help further the mission and vision of the Florida Conference.
The fruit born from CONAM has resulted from evangelizing in a way that is respectful of the traditions and cultures of Native Americans. We are an advocate for Native American issues and are networked with other Native American ministries to be a resource for information. CONAM will help United Methodist Native Americans in the process of taking the opportunities to become United Methodist ministers or lay ministers. We endeavor to advocate for Native American ministries and by Native Americas to share the diverse culture, history and traditions of Native people.
The Indian Health Service continues to work closely with our tribal partners and state and local public health officials to coordinate a comprehensive public health response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
