Thousand Oaks, Calif-Rob McCoy, pastor at GodSpeak Calvary Chapel in Newbury Park and a Thousand Oaks City Council member, is the keynote speaker for the Southeast Ventura County YMCA’s 18th Annual National Day of Prayer Breakfast, Thursday, May 4. Breakfast will be served at 7:00 a.m. with the program running from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at CLU’s Gilbert Sports Center in Thousand Oaks. The theme for the morning is “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”
McCoy’s will focus his talk on “Unity in Our Community,” a particularly timely message. “The YMCA prayer breakfast is inclusive and ecumenical and is vital for all our citizens to gain a greater understanding of each other,” says McCoy. “We may have ideological differences but we need not to be divided. We are designed for relationship and we must endeavor to unity. We are living on God’s earth, breathing God’s air and drinking God’s water. God desires that we get along.”
“The Southeast Ventura County YMCA prayer breakfast has grown to become one of the largest in Ventura County,” says Janice Wise, YMCA development director. “A group of dedicated volunteers work hard each year to create a wonderful, uplifting event that is truly a blessing to those who attend and to our community as a whole.” The breakfast draws about 400 people annually.
Mary Olson, general manager at KCLU-FM, will be the master of ceremonies and the Oaks Christian Boys Choir will perform.
