Texas Impact staff will be in prayer for the United Methodist General Conference May 10-20 in Portland Oregon. General Conference is made up of almost 900 delegates from around the world, and is the official policy-making body of the United Methodist Church that meets once every four years. I had the honor of attending the 2012 General Conference in Tampa, Florida and know that the delegates, volunteers, staff and advocates could certainly use prayer during long days full of difficult debates regarding church law, budgets, structures and resolutions.
