2014 National Urban Ministry Conference

February 20-22, 2014

North Little Rock, AR


The conference for people serving in the inner city.



      Close to God Close to People was the theme to help urban ministers, workers, leaders, and volunteers to understand the need for personal self care.  Those serving in urban ministry need to realize the importance of spending quality time being close to God.  Without an intentional process of self discipline in spiritual care for our souls, the results could be disastrous leading to "burn out."


.     During the Saturday morning leadership team meeting, a commitment was made to providing a means for addressing self care at each NUMC.


     The 2015 NUMC will be held in Oklahoma City, OK, February 19 - 21, 2015.  David North and Pancho Hobbes are the Co-Chairs.
