Dr Jairy Hunter, President, Charleston Southern University:   “The annual Charleston Leadership Prayer Breakfast brings together leaders in our community who pray for God’s guidance and give thanks for our many blessings. I look forward to hearing an inspirational speaker who encourages everyone to trust and honor God in every aspect of life. The event is a special time for Christians to fellowship and encourages one another in Christ.”

 Gene Sapakoff, Sports Writer, Post and Courier:   “The CLF prayer breakfast is so wonderful, one of the great examples of Charleston coming together and the Lowcountry at its best. The focus on mentoring spreads every year and that’s a tribute to the heart and spirit of Charleston.”

 Paul Heinauer, President, glasspro:   “The Charleston Prayer Breakfast has been a blessing to me and my guests. It is a great day having people from all walks of life- politicians, businessmen and women, and religious leaders from all different Christian denominations- declaring Jesus Christ as our Lord. It inspires us all to be a “light” to the world.”

Priscilla A. Roper, Director of Human Resources, CMCI:   “Allowing our employees to attend the annual prayer breakfast has been a great way to express our commitment to the purpose of the Charleston Leadership Foundation.  We believe in this wonderful project and the blessings it has brought to others.
