2014 National Urban Ministry Conference
We believe God will do great things this year among us at NUMC2014 in North Little Rock AR! We look forward to being with you! Often our conference has focused on the doing of urban ministry. This year's theme, Close to God Close to People, we believe will focus our time together on the being of urban ministry. This weekend will be dedicated to sitting with God and with each other to allow Him to work within us so that streams of living water will bubble up and overflow into the lives of those whom God sends to our churches and ministries. We will listen to God together, come closer to each other in relationship, allow God to bring us into oneness--heart, mind, body, and soul--with the hope that you will be strengthened to return home having experienced new ways to maintain, thrive and grow spiritually. Worship, keynotes, classes, and free time all have been designed to offer opportunities to connect with God and network with each other. Please plan to experience getting into God's presence with those who have answered the call to urban ministry.

Praise the LORD.
