Mayors Prayer Breakfast returns to Santa Clarita

Alveda King, Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece, was the keynote speaker at the Santa Clarita Valley Mayors Prayer Breakfast on May 3, 2018.

The National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2, brings another Mayors Prayer Breakfast event to Santa Clarita.

This will be the 15th annual breakfast hosted by The Diako Group, a nonprofit dedicated to helping young people in the community become future leaders.

This year, the event will focus on prayer in the film industry and how God-centered films have emerged in Hollywood.

Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon, screenwriters who have written many God-centered films, will be the event’s keynote speakers.

They believe in the growth of the Christian film industry, and have consequently created Believe Entertainment, a production company dedicated to making movies that honor God and have a moral story.

They will be joined by Niamani Knight, a senior at Saugus High School who founded the STREAM (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and manufacturing) Kids Expo in 2014.

Knight’s goal is to bridge the gap between students and STREAM subjects by providing interactive learning experiences and encouraging students of every learning style and ability to find their passions.

This breakfast is part of a nationwide event designated by Congress that calls on people of all different faiths to pray for the nation and its leaders.

Tickets for the Santa Clarita Valley Mayors Prayer Breakfast are available online for $30 and will be $35 at the door. If prices are an issue, those wanting to attend should contact The Diako Group for assistance.

The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency, located at 24500 Town Center Drive in Valencia, on Thursday, May 2. Registration opens at 6:30 a.m. and the program will begin promptly at 7 a.m., with breakfast being served to all who attend.

To purchase your ticket, visit scvmpb.org or call The Diako Group at 661-257-9250.
