This year’s keynote speaker will be Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Daniel York who is the son of missionaries and a lifelong Christian himself. York served as a company commander in the 101st Airborne in the early 1980s and then 10 years as a staff member of The Navigators global ministry.

Clark County mayors, civic leaders and public officials will also be honored at this year’s event, along with many nonprofits who receive support through the community network displayed at the breakfast.  

The Prayer Breakfast is an effort by many organizations to make time for “Residents, businesses and organizations honoring, thanking, and praying for our community leaders and those that serve and protect us.”

This year the event is presented by the Portland-Vancouver Metro chapter of Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship in America (FGBMF), the YMCA and Serving Our Neighbors
