COMMUNITY PARTNERS are Christians in the Marketplace who see their work as a calling from God. Their goal is to advance the kingdom through service.
A True Partnership means we are in this together.
Community Partners pray for you, support your ministry, and serve your Ministry Team with honesty and professionalism.
IAM members are encouraged to use every available means to encourage every Ministry Team Member*, to know there is a Christian professional connected with you, and the ministry, that will do all they can to help and serve.
Top 4 benefits to your ministry

IAM Family Updates
IAM is growing and with that good news, staying connected as a family is increasingly important. The “IAM Family Update” is one of many steps planned to continue to inspire growth and nourish our relationship as, yes Leaders, but more importantly, brothers and sisters seeking to serve Christ. With your help, every Second Tuesday of the month we will send a new update designed to introduce members and share information about our collective efforts to serve.
How can you help? Are you, or do you have a friend who is, a writer? We could use your/their skills in creating articles for the Updates, Facebook, our website etc,.
Do you have NEWS OR NEEDS we should know and pray about? Please let me know. First I will pray for you and second we will pass it on to others in the family.
Partnering with Nonprofit Leaders in the Sacramento Region
We will continue to do what we can to celebrate all christian led nonprofits in the Sacramento area. Currently we sponsor events 3-4 times per year for this group. You are always invited to come and If you know someone leading a ministry who doesn’t know about it, ask them to join you.
The launching of an Annual IAM Fundraiser..
While IAM’s costs are low (10%) and it is appropriate for ministries to share in the costs of all ministries regardless of size, if we could raise around $20,000-$30,000 each year we could donate back to each ministry all or a major portion of this cost..... If we had 30 churches and individuals donating $1,000 a year, or a combination of others equaling that, we could make a difference.
Please pray for volunteer leaders willing and able to start and build this into a successful annual event.
Blueprint Initiative .....
Many potential ministries and charities never actually get started. Of those who start, many will disappear in a few years, some however, continue to serve people in need year after year, for decades. The difference is often training. The first 12-18 months can be critical in the birth of a new ministry.
Please pray for the right leaders to volunteer in Building a program to provide these essentials to qualified new ministry leaders.
