Native Americans bring many unique languages, cultures and mores to their 124 churches. Through Native American Ministries Sunday (NAMS), United Methodists can equip and empower Native American pastors, congregations and seminary students to preserve their heritage and honor their past.
Typically celebrated on the third Sunday of Easter, NAMS nurtures this mission by providing scholarships for United Methodist Native American seminarians. The collection taken that day helps to develop and strengthen Native American ministries in GNJ, Native American rural, urban, reservation ministries and communities relating to the General Board of Global Ministries.
