History of CAM

Christian Alliance of Ministries, or CAM, was founded in 1996 to provide spiritual covering, accountability and ministry confirmation by way of relational oversight. L. A. Joiner, the founder, has been involved in church planting, pastoral, ministry and church oversight for over 30 years. He worked to provide a family atmosphere where the primary focus is extending the Kingdom of God throughout the world.

In April of 2015, LA Joiner passed the mantle of leadership of CAM to Michael Wells. In 2018, we formed the CAM Leadership Network in order “to provide a relational network which serves as a platform for resourcing and empowering Kingdom leaders in vocational ministry or the marketplace.” From a relational family approach, the CAM Leadership Network is also connected to a larger part of the Body of Christ. Michael Wells is a member of Christ Covenant Coalition, under the direct oversight of Bishop Joseph Mattera, who along with LA Joiner provide direct accountability for Michael. Christ Covenant Coalition also serves as a larger umbrella which is made up of a number of smaller networks, or cells, like CLN.

It is important for us to understand we fit into a bigger community that has a relational government or spiritual family much larger than our own churches. Just by being a part of Christ Covenant Coalition, we are connected to churches and ministers that are ministering all over the world in church planting, evangelism, leadership training of nationals and benevolent ministry of all kinds. Another aspect of this family is relational oversight and accountability. Like all families, relationships have to be kept strong through pouring time and effort into building and enhancing them.

Relational connectivity is critically important to the life of each church, ministry and minister. We seek to have everyone in the network Connect, Contribute, Collaborate, and Create. These 4 C’s are central to the CAM Leadership Network. Connecting in relationship with other leaders; Contributing your talents, abilities, and gifts; Collaborating with network leaders; and Creating what the Holy Spirit lead us to do.
