With the help of many, All Pro Pastors International organized and hosted an extremely well-attended Central Florida Leadership Prayer Breakfast in Plant City, Florida on September 15, 2021.
In a faith-filled Grimes Family Agricultural Center, more than 650 folks heard powerful and inspiring testimonies from Lieutenant General (retired) William G. “Jerry” Boykin and Mike Lindell, founder/CEO of the My Pillow organization. And the best news – by the end of the event, 48 people had made decisions for Christ.
General Jerry Boykin is one of the original members of the Delta Force and has spent much of his career in Special Forces. His work in this area of the military placed him in many legendary battles. He was commander of the Delta Force team portrayed in the movie Black Hawk Down. He also led the operations to remove and capture the notorious General/Dictator Manuel Noriega of Panama. Throughout his talk at the breakfast, the highly regarded warrior and author credited God for divine intervention and encouraged everyone attending to make a relationship with Jesus a priority in their life.
Mike Lindell’s journey to faith in Christ was not an easy road, but today he gives all glory to God for the restored success of his companies and for his non-profit outreach ministry, the Lindell Recovery Network. His incredible life gave inspiration and hope to many who attended. As a thank you gift, he provided breakfast attendees with a copy of his new book, What are the Odds? From Crack Addict to CEO.
All Pro Pastors International was thankful for its title sponsor- Lighthouse Ministries, and for the eight platinum sponsors, as well as the delicious breakfast by Fred’s Market Restaurant and program printing by Beit Tehila congregation.
Dan Shock with Florida Marketplace Ministries has assumed responsibility for follow-up with those who made new decisions for Christ at the event.
In addition to serving in-person attendees, the Central Florida Leadership Prayer Breakfast was livestreamed to more than 175 countries, thanks to producer/director Jade Fulford and the All Pro Pastors International’s reach throughout the world.
With such a wonderful turnout for this first-ever event, the APPI ministry and its supporters are encouraged that the 2022 prayer breakfast will have even more in attendance.
