Since 1973, when Mayor Tom Bradley asked area pastors to meet with him in prayer for the city, civic and religious leaders have gathered annually to celebrate God's blessing and seek His guidance and protection for our city and her leaders. This year’s keynote speaker is Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries. Many government officials, religious and community leaders will be lifting up prayers for our city.

We’d like you to join us for a morning of inspiration, prayer, and good fellowship. Tickets are only $28.50 per person and parking i
