New England Regional Ministry
Ministry of Prayer and Encouragement
Greg Holm, Director of Field Ministries
Greg has been with Christian Military Fellowship since 1978. He has served as a Local Leader, Regional Representative, and served on the Board of Directors. Greg faithfully orchestrates our electronic prayer ministry by transmitting in real-time the urgent prayer requests of our membership. He is also our chief encourager who brings the hope of Christ Jesus to those who have been struck by the disappointments of this world. Greg also travels around the country visiting our membership and fosters ministries in the New England Region.
Greg enlisted in the United States Air Force in December 1976 and went to Basic Training at Lackland AFB, TX the following July.
After training at Lowry AFB, CO he was assigned to RAF Upper Heyford, England in August 1978. There he first met members of Christian Military Fellowship and Officers' Christian Fellowship and was very active in the base chapel, local Bible Study Groups, a Contemporary Worship Service and conferences with the British Officers Christian Union and the Association of Military Christian Fellowships. It was during this time Greg met the CMF Executive Director, Ernie Miller and felt God's call to military ministry. At the end of his enlistment in 1981 he joined Ernie on a month-long missionary journey all through Europe to meet and encourage CMF and OCF members and other military missionaries. This was his time to "learn the ropes" of missions to the military. Greg returned home to Colorado, enlisted in the Colorado Air National Guard and began attending Rockmont College. Also, Ernie Miller invited Greg to join the Office Staff of CMF at the Headquarters in Englewood, CO. After graduating in 1984 he moved to Aurora, CO to continue ministry at Lowry AFB and to be closer to Buckley ANG Base where he was assigned. In 1993 Greg had the opportunity to cross-train at Keesler AFB, MS. Shortly after that he met Diane Emerson, an Air Force nurse leaving Active Duty. They met through a mutual friend from the OCF Bible Study. It did not take for them to fall in love and were married in nearby Pensacola, FL where Diane lived. Greg joined her in Florida after completing his training and was allowed to remain in the COANG, serving with an ANG unit in MS and being deployed overseas with other units from all over the country. In Pensacola they participated in Bible Studies, attended worship at NTTC Corry Station and assisted with ministry at NAS Pensacola. Greg and Diane moved back to Colorado in 1996 to join a new Space Command Air Guard unit in Greeley and he began working full-time as a civil service ANG Technician. Diane continued working as a nurse. In 2008 Greg was medically disqualified from military service and he retired as a Master Sergeant after 31 years of service. In 2010 they moved to Maine to be close to Diane's parents. Greg continues his work with CMF by serving as the Directory of Field Ministry and compiling the monthly Prayer Letter, the "Battle Plan" and sending a daily email prayer reminder. He is active with the Chapel ministry on Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Kittery, ME and Pease ANG Base, Newberry, NH.
Ministry to Coast Guard Families
Vic and Cindy Primeaux
Since settling in November 1998 on the western shores of Puget Sound, God has opened many doors to impact lives with the Good News of Jesus Christ in fields that are ripe for harvest with far too few laborers. The Lord has given us favor with many of the military chaplains in the area, particularly with the Coast Guard and Navy, which are currently the focus of our ministry. Vic is involved weekly with Bible studies and prayer groups at the 13th Coast Guard District Office and the Support Command in Seattle, the Bangor Submarine Base Dining Facility and Brig, and at least monthly at Coast Guard Port Angeles commands through their weekly prayer breakfasts. Vic is also involved in one-on-one counseling, visits to cutters, trips to various commands around the Pacific Northwest and the
entire West Coast, and leadership of our weekly home Bible study group. Cindy leads a military wives weekly Bible study, and we’re both involved with telephone, e-mail and snail-mail counseling and support.
Marine Corps Base Quantico
Udell and Janet Meyers
Udell and Janet Meyers have ministered to our Armed Forces at home and abroad for 33 years, serving in the Philippines, Guam, England, Virginia, Illinois, and Florida. From 1999-2007 they ministered to Marines stationed at MCB Quantico, VA .
In June of 2020, while ministering to the military community at Pensacola Naval Air Station- FL, they sensed the Lord calling them to return to Quantico and resume the ministry they had previously conducted.
As in their previous tenure there, they frequently host Marines in their home, and primarily utilize a 2400 Sq. Ft. rental facility they call the “Rally
Point”. It is situated in the heart of the liberty town and provides a spiritually wholesome place for the Marines to relax and enjoy refreshments, table tennis, darts, pool, table games, and play a variety of musical instruments. Wi-Fi, an audio-visual center, and study areas are also available.
Through their interaction with those who frequent the “Rally Point”, the Meyers have many opportunities to minister to the spiritual needs of their guests through informally providing Bible based counselling, sharing the Gospel when the Lord opens doors of utterance, and conducting Bible Studies and spiritually enriching DVD seminars and inspirational movies.
In addition to discipling and mentoring fellow believers, opportunities are provided for them to assemble and share testimonies, pray, and enjoy the blessing of Fellowship – I John 1:3-4.
As their ministry schedule allows, The Meyers extend the use of the “Rally Point” to other Military Ministry Organizations that provide services that are in harmony with sound Biblical Doctrine. They frequently co-labor with these organizations and conduct “Joint Operation Ministries” both at the Rally Point and on MCB Quantico.
In addition to conducting their ministry in the town of Quantico, they are authorized by the Command Chaplain to provide on base ministries that he deems appropriate. Chaplains and those who participate in the Chapel program are welcomed to utilize the “Rally Point” for meetings and other Chapel related activities. In addition to their participation in Chapel services, the Meyers serve on the Protestant Chapel Advisory Council.

Fort Cavasos (Formerly Fort Hood)
The freedoms the United States military has fought for and continues to fight for are precious to me. I have always been in awe of people in our uniforms and am thankful for them. Therefore, I count it a great privilege to serve them through the ministry of encouragement and discipleship. I want to help our armed forces to learn or think about the God who loves them.
Remote Access Discipleship, Marriage & Family and Mentoring
Bob has been with the Christian Military Fellowship since 1981. He has served as a Local Leader, Coordinator of Ministries, Chief Operating Officer, President/CEO, and Chairman of the Board of Directors. After a short retirement he returned as Chief Information Officer. His ministry area has been one-on-one mentoring and discipleship.

Camp Lejeune & MCAS New River
Dick and Sue Price
Sue and I were raised in the heart of the Midwest, Indiana, and grew with the values instilled there. After our marriage, we attended a church which strongly supports missions and missionaries. On the closing evening of our annual Missions Conference, we asked God what He would have us do. Initially we were directed to minister with men and women who were all combat veterans ranging from World War II through and including Desert Storm and “minor” incursions not well known around the world. This ministry was closed to us after almost ten years as God asked us to move to Jacksonville, NC, and minister to young Marines and sailors at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.
This ministry has evolved to Bible studies with young Marines at the School
of Infantry, couples studies and mentoring in our home. We also continue relationships by E-mail, telephone and snail mail with young men and women who have either been deployed, transferred elsewhere, or released from active duty.
Our ministry also includes meeting and riding with Marines and sailors on motorcycles around the area and sometimes on trips around the East Coast. Our motorcycle is a great tool for contact and common interest. This, in turn, opens opportunity to share Christ.
One of the most difficult but also the most rewarding aspects of this ministry is that we are often viewed as loving and wise grandparents, parents, mentors, or counselors meeting an unfulfilled need. Developing trust and relationship reveals the real need — Christ.
