Local businesses, commercial enterprises, churches, governmental agencies and schools have received invitations to attend.

The Altus Air Force Base praise group and Patti Ray with the Altus High School Choir will lead the music.

Jim Brown, Pastor, Altus Christian Fellowship and President of the Jackson County Ministerial Alliance said “It is our sincere hope that this Prayer Breakfast will bring together community leaders, spiritual leaders and business and commercial leaders in Altus. Perhaps we can learn together what might just happen when we stop to pray as one group for our community and its needs. The power of prayer can never be underestimated.”
Last year over 270 people attended the event. We anticipate our crowd will be even larger this year so get your tickets early.
