The UAMM Executive Committee met October 22, 2019, 1 pm – 4 pm, in Anchorage, Alaska, to deal with a full agenda of not only praying for the needs of UAMM’s 25 Churches and Fellowships, but to look at better ways to raise dollars and bring support to its members throughout Alaska, America, and Honduras, as well as other areas of the world. In its discussions it was felt that whatever UAMM does must help to strengthen the World Fellowship of Moravian Revival Churches in seven countries and others around the globe.
Enhancing efforts was unanimous support to rename United Alaska Moravian Ministry (UAMM) group to United International Moravian Ministry (UIMM) group. This recommended proposal will go before the annual meeting of UAMM in January 2020. Much of UAMM’s yearly budgeted dollars go worldwide to support church building, acquisition of land, scholarships, feeding orphans, medical, education, and even pastoral support.
Another significant action was to recommend the holding of “Spiritual Feast Revivals” throughout its Churches and Fellowship and throughout the villages of Alaska and where-ever it goes with the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ. A major emphasis was to allow the Holy Spirit free reign, but to assure that proper preaching and teaching of God’s Holy Word be used for enhanced discipleship, since functionally UAMM is a pre-denominational, 1st Century discipleship Church.
The Alaska Awakening book authored by Bishop Nicholson in November 2018 tells UAMM’s story of revival, religious conflicts, growth, and then exclusion from the Moravian World Wide Unity. On a course of Moravian heritage revivalism, UAMM’s story is documented with interesting history and Holy Spirit movement as it played a big role in creation of the World Fellowship of Moravian Revival Churches, a growing and powerful organism for Christ. This book is now free and available at UAMM’s central office.
