Our History

In 1999, seven Collin County business and community leaders formed what is known today as the Christian Prayer Breakfast of Collin County. Their desire was to provide an annual event centered on prayer and praise and dedicated to current civic needs. Occurring in a central Collin county location, the event would provide Collin County believers of all denominations a unique opportunity to worship the Lord Jesus Christ communally and enjoy fellowship over an early morning breakfast. The speakers have always been concerned Americans and devoted followers of Christ who are committed to helping attendees remain strong in their Christian faith while working in secular capacities.
