Guiding scripture leading into General Conference:
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phillippians 4:6-7)

Favorite paragraph of the Book of Discipline (we all have one, right?): 

No particular favorite paragraph in Book of Discipline–I love it all!

A brief statement on your call to serve as a delegate:

From the first General Conference I attended in 2004, I have felt called to do my part in working to make our United Methodist Church the very best it could be as it welcomes all people and stays true to its purpose of mission and ministry.

Specific prayer request(s) for the work ahead:

My prayer request is that our congregations pray for all our delegates as we do the work required for this General Conference.  The days will be long and tiring and it will be comforting to know that we are being prayed for.
