Dear Pastors and Prayer Leaders, and Church Board members,
We are excited to share a prayer initiative that the Upper Columbia Conference is embarking on and to invite your church to participate in the vision. This idea has come as a result of God placing a desire on the hearts of a grass-roots young adult ministry in our conference, the Digging Deeper Retreat. We are excited to bring this initiative to UCC.
The initiative is called Prayeradigm Shift.
Our goal is to see small groups throughout our churches and conference, journeying together into the heart of prayer, asking God to align our prayeradigms with His prayeradigm.
As part of this initiative, two events are being planned that we invite your church to participate in.
Event 1: A prayer retreat for leaders taking place October 29-31, 2021 at Camp MiVoden. Pavel Goia will be the speaker, and churches are invited to participate by sending a small nucleus of representatives from their church (2-4 people). The expectation is that those who attend will then return home to work as leaders to help bring Event 2 to their home church.
Event 2: A prayer weekend for all of UCC taking place February 25-27, 2022. This event will be accessible online, and people are encouraged to meet as small groups in their homes to journey through the weekend (the event will not take place during Sabbath morning church service time).
The pastors of our churches are essential in the success of an initiative like this, so we are extending a special invitation and will cover the cost of registration and travel expenses for any pastors who attend with a nucleus from their church. Beyond this, we invite you to pray over who God would have your church send. We have included a simple page of instructions letting you know how to register your nucleus of representatives.
Information about registration costs can be found on the website. We invite your church to consider partially or fully covering the cost of those whom you send from your church. A scholarship fund has also been set up through UCC to provide additional financial assistance where needed.
Registration for Event 1 will open June 21, 2021. Because space at Camp MiVoden is limited, registration for the event will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis. We look forward to welcoming the first 30-40 churches who sign up.

We look forward to the plans God has for our conference as through our prayers we seek His will, surrender to His leading, and invite Him to show up.
