About mid-March every year, no matter the weather, about a thousand people show up for a very early breakfast at the Ramada Inn in downtown Topeka.
The occasion is the annual Kansas Prayer Breakfast, sponsored by Topeka Fellowship, Inc. Statewide leaders in government, business, education and industry will be on hand as usual as the program begins at about 6:45 a.m. on Wednesday, March 20th, for the 58th celebration of the annual event. As several buffet lines open for serving at 6:00 a.m., the banquet hall will be filled with Kansans from all walks of life.
This year’s featured speaker will be David McAlvany.
McAlvany is CEO of the McAlvany Financial Companies, International Collectors Associates, ICA Europe, and McAlvany Wealth Management. He is a featured speaker on national television programs including CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business News, and Bloomberg. David also speaks on radio programs and at financial seminars around the world analyzing major events and their impact on the global economy and financial markets. He hosts a weekly radio program with commentary from world leaders, bankers, economists, and renowned investors.
In his book, The Intentional Legacy, David shares his own personal failures and successes as a “Prodigal Son,” who returned home to start over with purpose. He presents a strategy for “reverse engineering” your life and legacy. Most importantly, David presents a redemptive ethic for family prosperity based on love, forgiveness, and non-contingent relationships. David, his wife, and four children enjoy living, skiing, and hiking in the mountains of Colorado.
In addition to McAlvany, the audience will hear from a wide array of Kansas leaders, as always. Festivities will wrap up by 8 a.m., just in time for most folks to get to work on time.
The Kansas Prayer Breakfast is held in March each year, and is patterned after the National Prayer Breakfast, which began in 1953 in Washington, D.C., under the leadership of Kansas Senator Frank Carlson and President Dwight Eisenhower. The Kansas version began in 1962 with the aid and encouragement of Governor John Anderson. Carlson was the first keynote speaker.
Tickets for the breakfast are $18.00 per person or $180.00 for a reserved table of ten. For reservations call 785-380-2901 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
