You are invited to come to St. Andrew's and learn how to participate in the Prayer Ministry for the 2012 General Conference and to create Mantles of Prayer, which will be given to each elected delegate, bishop, and leader at this global meeting of our denomination.
The training event requires a minimum of three hours, and by the end of it you will:
Know how you and your family can participate in the "50 Days of Prayer."
Know how to organize a prayer vigil in your church or district.
Create a Mantle of Prayer that will be worn by one of the members of the Oklahoma delegations or other delegation members from your jurisdiction.
Pray with others from our area for God to give wisdom and clarity to the leaders of our Church.
Enjoy learning and helping others and meeting new people.
Our leaders for this event are:
--- Rev. Tom Albin, who is dean of The Upper Room Ministries and Ecumenical Relations. Tom is a member of the Oklahoma Conference and serves with The Upper Room in Nashville, Tenn., as an extension minister under the appointment of Bishop Hayes. He will lead the prayer training portion of the event.
