City Prayer Breakfast in Abbotsford on May 2

Annual event held by Christian Leadership Network

The Abbotsford Christian Leadership Network (ACLN) hosts its annual city-wide prayer breakfast on Wednesday, May 2.

The event begins at 7 a.m. at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre, 36035 North Parallel Rd. The breakfast is held each year to pray pray for and encourage those who hold a position of leadership within the city of Abbotsford.

“There has never been a more important time to support our city leaders,” said Tim MacIntosh, chairman of the ACLN.

“Following the events of late 2017, it is important now, more than ever, to show our emergency response teams that we are holding them up in prayer throughout the year.”

Guest speaker Trevor Throness will speak about Light in the Workplace. Throness grew up in a leadership family, with his father serving as a pastor for what was then the largest church in Canada.

After starting his career as a youth pastor, Throness moved into the business world and now helps leaders navigate challenges associated with growth, with most challenges being rooted in people issues.

Throness has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs, organizations, and business families fix people problems, enhance communication, attract top talent, and build exceptional cultures.

Musical guest at the breakfast will be singer-songwriter Brian Doerksen, who returns to his hometown of Abbotsford to support the event this year.

A sub-committee of the ACLN has been meeting regularly for several months to organize the breakfast. The event sold out last year.

Planning committee chair is Andy Kwak, who is also chaplain for Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service.

“Just as our city continues to grow, over the past few years the City Prayer Breakfast has grown to become our ACLN premiere event,” he said.
