Nabhi Christian Ministries (NCM) is a nonprofit, 501C3 church organization founded in 1996 and incorporated in 1998. Its primary purpose was to improve the quality of life for its neighbor by proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom through worship shaped by sound exegesis designed to produce transformation and effective leadership in God’s people, including the impoverished, marginalized and outcast who struggle to overcome the challenges of everyday life to meet their basic needs.
NCM’s unique name and mission was birthed through a vision given to its founder, Rev. Jacque Fielder in year 1994. Two years after this vision, Rev. Fielder and her assistant stumbled across the meaning of the word, “Nabhi” from a Hebrew Librarian, while the organization was visiting the Carnegie Library in Oakland, PA for a totally different matter. The Hebrew word “Nabhi” means, “one to whom God secretly communicates.”
NCM was established in the midst of extreme gang violence resulting in the loss of many innocent lives in the poorest community of Allegheny County. ”The vision showed NCM transforming the way the church engaged its neighbors in need, by enhancing impoverished communities, reducing havoc and cultivating healthy environments through a provision of services that mentored, trained, and developed quality citizens of all ages.
1988, Rev. Fielder had another vision commanding her to, “Teach My People.” In 1984, Rev. Fielder saw sick people of all races and genders with open sores covering their bodies lying on either side of the steps outside the front door of a dark-colored church building. She was commanded to, “Sound the Trumpet.”
