Mission Statement


Urban Prayer Breakfast is a faith community that puts poor and homeless persons in fellowship with persons from other socioeconomic categories with ethnically and denominationally diverse backgrounds.

Description


Essentially we offer an hour of worship, preaching and prayer beginning at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, followed by a hot breakfast meal. We provide the breakfast and worship every weekday throughout the year, including holidays like Christmas, New Year?s Day and Thanksgiving. The average attendance at the Urban Prayer Breakfast is approximately 100 persons, most of whom live in the nearby shelters and on the streets. We depend heavily upon our volunteers and ministry partners from various places to staff and fund our programs. Over the years, the volunteers who have invested the most time and energy into the ministry on a daily basis have actually come from the homeless population. In addition, we have volunteers from other churches and from the neighborhood who have been committed for years to work with us regularly as preachers, musicians, worship leaders, cooks and servers.
