ROCKLIN, Calif., - William Jessup University will host the South Placer County National Day of Prayer Breakfast on May 2 beginning at 7 a.m. at the growing university's Academic Warehouse. Keynote speaker for the popular event is New York Times best-selling author and preacher, Francis Chan.

Chan is the best-selling author of books including, Multiply, Crazy Love, Forgotten God, and Erasing Hell. He is the host of the BASIC series (Who is God and We Are Church). He has also written three children's books entitled, Halfway Herbert, The Big Red Tractor and the Little Village and Ronnie Wilson's Gift.

"We are thrilled to host this event on our campus each year," declared WJU President Dr. John Jackson.  "It encourages and motivates all who attend."

Chan previously served as the founding pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, California, and is the founder of Eternity Bible College. He also sits on the board of directors of Children's Hunger Fund and World Impact. 

Currently, he is leading a church planting movement in the inner city of San Francisco and also working to launch a countrywide discipleship movement known as "Multiply". Francis now lives in Northern California with his wife, Lisa, and their five children.

Prominent prayer leaders from nine separate walks of life will also give their testimony and pray.  Event chair John Allard said, "It really is amazing to hear so many leaders in important positions in our region publicly declare the importance of Christ in their lives."

Tickets are on sale Monday, April 1online at www.praysacramento.com .  Tickets to the event are $15.  Sponsorships and table host packages also are available. 

The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 when President Harry S. Truman signed a joint resolution of Congress into law.   In 1988 President Ronald Reagan signed a law declaring that the first Thursday in May would be designated as the National Day of Prayer each year.

According to Ted Rose, the State Coordinator for the National Day of Prayer Task Force, the South Placer County event is the premier prayer breakfast in California.
