Mayor's Prayer Breakfast

Story and photography by Eric Lusk

A tradition dating back 13 years, the 2019 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast recently took place at the Mid TN Expo Center on Middle Tennessee Boulevard, benefitting Greenhouse Ministries. Hundreds of people from a multitude of denominations gathered on National Prayer Day to pray for our country, our state, our community and more. Prayer leaders included Joe Carr, Pastor Brady Cooper, Hunter McFarlin, Linda Gilbert, Chaplain James Horn, Ann Cross, Wayne Belt, Ben Weatherford and Bart Walker.

Since 1999, Executive Directors, Cliff and Jane Sharp’s vision for Greenhouse Ministries has been two fold. Their first goal is to move people out of their current situation of hopelessness and help them see their God given potential. And their second goal is to provide an outlet for people in our community to volunteer.
