Interfaith Breakfast keeps focus on youth development

Getting Jacksonville’s youth on the right track will be the push as people of all faiths come together.

The 2nd Annual Interfaith Breakfast is being held Monday, May 20, at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown and keynote speaker Bishop T.D. Jakes of The Potter’s House of Dallas will be focusing on theme of "Faith, Family, and Friends" and the importance of mentoring young people.

“I am very excited about it,” Brown says.

He hopes the event will help bring the community together and build partnerships that will improve education and reduce crime. Additionally, Brown tells us he will use the event to launch initiatives to mentor local youth.

“I think the faith based community can play a major role in our city when it comes to improving the quality of life such as mentoring, call to action for more people mentoring young people so they can stay in school and graduate out of high school,” Brown says.

Right after the breakfast will be the Mayor’s workshop presentation.  The Interfaith Summit will be focusing on mentoring, how the faith based community is helping make Jacksonville a better place, and how to implement community programs.  The workshop will be held from 10 AM to 12 PM.

The Interfaith Breakfast is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased for $25 at jaxhappenings.com or by calling (904) 630-3690. Doors will open at 7:30 AM and the program will begin at 8 AM.
