Vineland, New Jersey was the location of the quadrennial gathering for Annual Conference Committees on Native American Ministries (CONAM’s), held in October of 2017. These events are held during the first year of each quadrennium and was the fourth CONAM Conference sponsored by NACP. Focus of the conference includes sharing of best practices for working with Native American ministries within conferences, promotion of Native American Ministries Sunday, annual conference-CONAM relationships, and networking between CONAM members from across the five U.S. jurisdictions. Co-sponsor for the 2017 CONAM Conference was the Greater New Jersey CONAM who coordinated with leadership of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Nation for a visit to the Tribal Grounds and worship at St. John UMC in Bridgeton, NJ. Participants were addressed by both Bishop John R. Schol and Lenni-Lenape Tribal Chair, Mark Gould.
