As Christians we know prayer is God’s ordained means of transformation. Those who have a living, active prayer life find purpose, joy and strength to live as witnesses for Jesus. When our people pray, our churches are strong.

Because of this a prayer conference is planned for members in the Mid-America Union Conference April 22-24 at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City, Nebraska. Over 100 participants from around the MAUC are expected to attend this special event. Leaders of each church are invited to prayerfully consider sending a representative in order to foster a culture of prayer and spiritual revival in our churches.

Speakers will be Kevin Wilfley, director of prayer ministries for the Washington Conference, and Virgil Covel, director of prayer ministries for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference. Wilfley, who led the morning devotionals at the North American Division pastors’ prayer conference in 2013, has a unique ability to lead transformational prayer and worship services. Covel has had the privilege of leading prayer seminars in the United States and Canada.

The Lied Lodge is a beautiful retreat center nestled in the gentle hills of eastern Nebraska. The early registration fee for the weekend, including vegetarian meals, lodging and materials is $260 per person for a double occupancy room. After January 31 the registration fee will be $285.

Virgil Covel is prayer ministries coordinator for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference.
