Virtual Event - December 3, 2020
Register for the first-ever virtual High Tech Prayer Breakfast!
As Christians, our hearts have been pierced not only by America’s societal divide but the lack of being obedient to the second greatest commandment - loving our neighbor as ourselves. After months of deliberation and prayer focused on how to respond, we decided to proceed with a virtual Zoom event this Fall, with conversation and time of prayer titled: The Reality of Reconciliation: What is our role in bridging the gap of division in America? Our special guest speakers will host a live Zoom conversation sharing their life stories of breaking the chains of division - and exploring what it means to live a life that strives for unity.
