Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.” Luke 11:1
What We Do
Prayer is a significant part of everything that happens in CCC. Each committee, retreat, meeting, and presentation begins with a season of prayer seeking God’s wisdom and insight. Led by director Joyce Mulligan, with assistants Ed and Lisa Walker, Prayer Ministries includes hundreds of volunteer prayer partners who assist with the many events throughout the year. Every Wednesday, prayer partners gather to lift up the needs of the conference, departments, and office personnel. Every pastor and principal is lifted up by name, along with every CCC church and school. The prayer request list is updated each week and a prayer email is periodically sent to almost 450 prayer warriors. In addition, two prayer conferences are held each year during which pastors and church leaders gather for training and inspiration; weekend prayer events are presented at churches throughout Central; and an annual pre-camp meeting prayer walk is organized to bathe the camp meeting experience in prayer. Thank you for praying for the needs of the conference and its leaders. You are invited to join the prayer partners each Wednesday from 10:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the conference office, or stop in with your prayer request.
Meet the Team
Prayer Ministries Director
Joyce Mulligan felt the call of the Holy Spirit to go into ministry with her husband full-time, quitting her job as the director of a respiratory therapy department. For several years, she had also been highly involved in Prayer and Women's Ministries within the Central California Conference. In 2010, she was asked to take the position of director for both of these departments. Mulligan, along with her team of volunteers, host different Prayer and Women's events throughout the year, speak and conduct seminars at churches, both in and out of our conference.
