Older Adult Ministry Council is up and running

November 20, 2007

The Older Adult Ministry Council came into being in June of this year when a resolution – submitted by the OAM Task Force – was approved at Annual Conference Session.


On November 7, 16 of the 20 OAM Council members who had been recently appointed to the group met in Sacramento. A mission statement was created: OAMC’s mission is to honor and enrich the lives of older adults by supporting the development of ministries by, with, and for older adults.


The OAMC is setting off on this path with seed money from the Beulah Foundation.


Rev. Dr. Judith Pruess-Mellow serves as Chair of the Council, and Rev. John Oda is the Vice Chair.


OAMC now has a newsletter! See the first edition by linking to the OAMC web page (located under “Ministries” on the green navigation bar near the top of the Home Page on the Conference website at www.cnumc.org).
