The next generation of leaders will be the topic of discussion at this year’s Delta Leadership Prayer Breakfast.
The event is set for Saturday, Feb. 29 at the Tsawwassen Springs Ballroom with coffee at 8:15 a.m. and breakfast at 9 a.m.
“The Delta Leadership Prayer Breakfast has been held annually in this community for 46 consecutive years,” said spokesperson Gatlin Saip. “The goal is to gather and pray for those who lead us, and for the flourishing of our community as a whole. We are people of Christian faith who love Delta and want anyone who serves and leads in this community to know that we are upholding them in our prayers — so that they will be encouraged and empowered as they fulfill their various roles and responsibilities.”
Featured speaker this year is Dr. Mark Husbands, president of Trinity Western University.
Husbands was appointed president of TWU in 2019.
Born in Wales and raised in Ontario, his career as a scholar, professor and leader in higher education has crisscrossed North America. His many scholarly and professional endeavours have been focused on issues of spiritual formation, racial reconciliation, global education and leadership.
“His talk will touch on the heart of true leadership, which is service,” added Saip. “We want the community to know that while we (the organizing committee) hold a Christian faith and worldview, we gladly welcome anyone who would like to attend this event.”
Tickets are $35 for the full breakfast buffet and presentation. Tickets are available on Eventbrite or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
