In a new month message which he simply tagged “Passionate Appeal”, the National President of All Nigeria Conference of Evangelical Drama Ministers (ANCEDRAM), Pastor Kingsley Nwachukwu, broke away from the norm of giving bible-based prophecy for the month to appeal to members to fill the ongoing biodata form for the National Directory project and also bring in non-committal gospel filmmakers to join the association.
Pastor Kingsley’s new month message passion did not pass without being noticed by the publicity director of the association, Pastor Abiodun Soretire, who accordingly tagged the month of October the ANCEDRAM Loyalty Month as he transmitted the president’s message.
The National Directory project has been going on for some time with members expected to fill a bio-data form from their state which shall then be transmitted by the state to the project’s online google form.
The result was still coming in in trickles as the September ending deadline approached. The president had to come in to extend the deadline to the ending of October. Although the turnout has drastically improved since there, there are still a lot of people from a lot of states who are yet to fill the form.
The president therefore used the occasion of his October new month message to appeal to all to “activate and/or reactivate their account with ANCEDRAM” and be part of the soon-to-be published first ANCEDRAM National Directory:
“Update of Bio-data is only an activation to prove our support for the association. We need the directory. We need to know our members who are still with us, spirit, soul and body.”
He submitted that the directory will solve seven challenges of the association and encouraged all to pick the form from their state chairmen.
Another passionate appeal of the President concerns proliferating number of gospel film makers and actors who are not committed to ANCEDRAM. He appealed to the swelling rank of members who are working with such people independently to use their influence to help bring them into the association.
“Let’s keep encouraging drama ministers and gospel movie-makers into joining the train. It does not look good working with them independently and outside the fold.”
A point of appeal of the presidential message also bordered on a plea to all gospel film producers to use the ANCEDRAM Promotional Video in their films as it was becoming evident that people are beginning to join and re-join the association through it.
As he wrapped up his message, Pastor Kingsley seized the moment to hint the members of the administration’s members’ products promotion project that is in the offing against next year, and the next year’s national congress that will be a hybrid meeting – both online and onsite.

ANCEDRAM PRESIDENT’S OCTOBER 2021 NEW MONTH MESSAGE
Welcome to OCTOBER (ANCEDRAM LOYALTY MONTH). It is our month of PASSIONATE APPEAL.
We wish to use this opportunity to appeal to every dedicated ANCEDRAM Member ( You and Me) and all Gospel film actors and producers on the following:
1. To Fill the Bio-data for ANCEDRAM National Directory. ANCEDRAM, of course, is not a cowboy association. It is an association of serious-minded persons and professionals – professors, doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs, academics, civil servants, students and artisans. Update of Bio-data is only an ACTIVATION to prove our support for the association.
Every old ANCEDRAM member is like a man with an account in a bank who operated the account in years past. He certainly needs REACTIVATION of the account in order to keep making withdrawals from the account. We need the Directory. We need to know our members who are still with us, spirit, soul and body.
Of course, seven prominent challenges of ANCEDRAM could be tackled once the Directory is actualised.
Let’s pick the FORMS from our State Chairmen. Elders, we need your SUPPORTS, Sirs!
2. We thank God for the testimonies of many co-workers who have joined ANCEDRAM as a result of ANCEDRAM Promotional JINGLE. More are still outside the fold.
We are therefore appealing to every FILM PRODUCER to assist in insisting the jingle in his film. God is always a REWARDER of every labour of faith.
3. Let’s keep encouraging drama ministers and gospel movie-makers into joining the train. It does not look good working with them independently and outside the fold. Yet, when challenges emerge, we drag them as our own brothers and co-workers. What is worth doing is worth doing well.
ANCEDRAM’s priority should be centered on ANCEDRAM members before being extended to others. We must do good to members of the household of faith, first.
4. As much as possible, this administration is trusting God to commence the PROMOTION of members’ products immediately after the National Congress, new year.
5. As applicable in our constitution, the next year’s congress is forthcoming. It’s going to be a HYBRID and will be highly impactful and encouraging.
Pst KC Nwachukwu
ANCEDRAM National President
