The 55th annual Spokane Leadership Prayer Breakfast will take place on May 4 at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Spokane, from 7 to 8:30 a.m. This event is organized by Leadership Northwest Spokane, a team of volunteers from “a diverse cross section of Christ centered churches, businesses and organizations.” The annual prayer breakfast is a time for community members to come together to pray for the city of Spokane and its leaders.
The mission of the prayer breakfast is focused on seeking God and praying for the Spokane community:
We gather together to seek God and to pray for leaders who serve our communities.
We intentionally lay down our differences in order to ask the Living God, in one collective voice, to bless our region.
In the Spirit of Jesus Christ, we will turn away from the actions and the attitude that either separate us from the Living God or divide our communities. We will actively pursue reconciliation.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Joe Wittwer, the lead pastor at Life Center. His message is titled “Gracism: the Art of Inclusion” and is based on Ephesians 2:14-22.
Tickets are $35 when purchased before April 27, and $45 after the early registration deadline.
