The Great Plains United Methodist Conference envisions a preferred future that will be interpreted at each local church and is captured in the statement:
Great churches. Great leaders. Great disciples. Transformed world.

“I liked working with students and the ability to improve my communications skills.”
Micah Corps Intern
May 2017 - July 2017
“About my internship: I researched market-based solutions to issues of food insecurity across the conference territory. After working with individuals who face food insecurity on a daily basis, as well as organizations that are working to combat the injustice, I complied oral and written presentations on the topic. Over the course of the summer, the group of interns lived in community and traveled across Nebraska, Kansas, and to Washington DC in order to develop church programs and educate others about solutions to social justice.
What I liked: I had freedom to research my own topic in the way that I wanted. I absolutely love economics so I got to approach social justice from a market structure because that is what I was passionate about. I also got to live in community! I worked and traveled with a group of 10 interns across the conference territory and even worked on capitol Hill for a week. ”
