Calgary Leadership Prayer Breakfast

Mission

The Calgary Leadership Prayer Breakfast serves as a way to re-affirm our faith in God in a public fashion and is an opportunity to participate in fellowship.

This means that we seek to love those around us just as Jesus loved those who were around him. It is recognized that Jesus is at the center of our event when we share a spirit, which is both welcoming and compassionate. There is a trust in the workings of God, that as we love and pray for one another, the Holy Spirit will work in our lives to help us grow as men and women who love mercy, seek justice and humbly walk with God.

As across Canada and in the United States, the prayer breakfasts are held in the belief that only God’s guidance and inspiration can provide optimum leadership for the people, our cities, provinces, nation and world.

The purpose of the Breakfast is to call men and women to God, and then to entrust them with the application of what it means to live out God’s grace as leaders. There is a trust in the workings of God, that as we love and pray for one another, that the Holy Spirit will work in our lives to help us grow as individuals who will continue to desire justice, mercy, and humility before the Lord. The aim is simply to meet in the spirit of Jesus and pray together.

As well as the annual Calgary Leadership Prayer Breakfast, a group of individual members meets weekly. This unites business, political, labour and members of our faith communities in prayer for the City and the leadership of Alberta and Canada.

Sponsored by concerned government, business, labour and professional leaders, Prayer Breakfasts are held in more than 100 countries around the world, each in its own way contributing to a wider spiritual awakening.

 

Vision

The strength of the event in the past has been due to the strong representation of the business community. Promoting awareness of the annual breakfast and showcasing leaders in the business community who share their testimony is a credible, visible way to indicate that Christ is in the community and in leadership. Our vision includes the young people of our generation coming out of our Christian schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutions for Christ centered leadership in our city.

 

Goal

The goal of the Calgary Leadership Prayer Breakfast Fellowship is all about reaching out to business leaders, and it also means reaching out to Christians of various denominational or theological backgrounds. It means reaching out with respect and love to people from different faith groups. In this way, Jesus’ teachings and his way of life are witnessed in quiet and life-changing ways.
