Local flavour for 22nd Annual Mayoral Prayer Breakfast

  • Written by  Ian Anderson

The 2014 Mayoral Prayer Breakfast will feature one of Toowoomba’s most respected Pastors and support a cause very close to our hearts.

“We are very fortunate to have as this year’s guest speaker, local man, Mr Ross Savill,” said Toowoomba Mayor Paul Antonio.

“Ross, a youth Pastor at Humeridge Church of Christ, has been awarded an O.A.M for his service to young people.”

Ps. Ross not only runs a thriving youth ministry, but has won national acclaim for his work with young African migrants in the community. He has successfully engaged with many young migrants through AFL coaching and after-school homework programs, work that has been featured on national television networks.

“A keen AFL fan, Ross has combined his love of the game with helping young people achieve on and off the field,” said Mayor Antonio. “His story is quite remarkable.”

As well as hearing from Ps. Ross, those attending this prestigious annual event will be helping to raise money for a very worthwhile cause.

“Importantly, this year’s event will help a cause very close to our heart in Toowoomba,” said Mayor Antonio. “As Australia’s second most productive Agricultural region, those on the land play a very important role in our community. Therefore, all proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Lifeline Drought Appeal.”

Over the years, the Mayoral Prayer Breakfast has been a highlight on the Toowoomba calendar and has raised much needed support for many charities in the region.

“I am proud to say that since its inception in 1993, the Mayoral Prayer Breakfast has raised in excess of $239,000,” said the Mayor.

“This outstanding achievement could not have been realised without the generous support of Toowoomba businesses that have donated the essentials required for the breakfast each year.”

The 2014 Mayoral Prayer Breakfast will take place from 6am to 8:30am on Tuesday 13 May at Rumours International.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students and can be purchased by calling the Toowoomba Regional Council on 131 872 or from www.toowoombarc.qld.gov.au
