City of Hinesville Councilwoman Vicky Nelson attended the Eugene C. Tillman, Sr. Memorial Prayer Convocation hosted by State Rep. Al Williams on Sunday, Jan. 7, at the Capitol building.
The annual convocation is held the Sunday before the first day of the session and includes a scriptures, singing and a short inspirational message.
Tillman was a founder of the original Georgia Legislative Prayer Caucus. The Prayer Caucus was initiated in 1993 by former Rep. Dr. Ronald A. Crews, who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1991-99, and Tillman, who served from 1993-2003. The Prayer Caucus is a non-partisan, ecumenical organization, open to all legislators and Capitol employees for weekly prayer meetings.
