Northern California National Day of Prayer Breakfast

SHARE with Friend

"The people of this region clearly understand the need for prayer for our nation as indicated by the fact that the ninth annual Northern California National Day of Prayer breakfast, presented by William Jessup University and K-LOVE and Air1 Radio, is already sold out," said event chairperson John Allard this morning.  "This is our fifth consecutive year selling out this wonderfully inspirational event," he continued. 

This year's keynote speaker is atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel, the former award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune.  He is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty books and serves as Professor of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University. 

 "If there's one thing our nation needs desperately, and that we need individually, it's prayer," said Mr. Strobel.  "We will recommit ourselves to praying for our state, our nation, for our world, and for us as individuals as we might be salt and light in our culture." 

 In addition to Mr. Strobel's address, some of the top decision makers in northern California will serve as prayer leaders for nine different aspects of our society. 

They include:

  • George Runner, elected member of the California Board of Equalization, praying for government;
  • Ron Lawrence, Chief of Police, City of Rocklin, praying for public safety personnel;
  • Air Force Major Drew Townsend, a U2 pilot, with more than 10 deployments, praying for the United States military;
  • Rick Wylie, president of the Beutler Corporation, praying for the business community;
  • Paul Oropallo, Director of Human Resources, San Juan Unified School District, praying for education;
  • Dr. Linda Williams, Foster and Homeless Youth Liaison, praying for the less advantaged;
  • Troy Wilson, church planting pastor in the heart of San Francisco, praying for our churches,
  • Lamar Holloway, Director of Youth Ministries at Bayside Church of South Sacramento, praying for churches; and
  • Brenda Price, on-air personality at Air1 Radio, praying for the media. 

The breakfast will take place at William Jessup University in Rocklin, beginning at 7 a.m. on Thursday, May 1, 2014.  For those unable to attend, the program  can be viewed via live stream at:
