The 2014 Prayer Breakfast was a sold our event at the NRA Annual Meeting & Exhibits. With nearly 1,200 NRA supporters in attendance, many were inspired as their First and Second Amendments rights were celebrated at this event sponsored by Trijicon, Universal Coin & Bullion, Wildfire Weekend for Men and Liberty University. Hosted by Master of Ceremonies, President of the American Association of Christian Counselors and Executive Director of Wildfire Weekend for Men, Dr. Tim Clinton, the morning began with an Invocation by NRA Board Member Joe DeBergalis, followed by a welcome by NRA Board Member Susan Howard and the recitation by NRA Supporter and Member, Joe Gregory.
Award winning recording artist Meredith Andrews inspired the audience with her incredible music and talent. Forrest Hamilton, with Universal Coin & Bullion introduced the founder of Fathers in the Field, John Smithbaker. John began his inspirational testimony and challenge with a video welcome from NRA Executive Director of General Operations, Kyle Weaver. Receiving a standing ovation, John encouraged those in attendance to influence and impact the upcoming generation of fatherless children.
Mr. Tom Munson, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Trijicon introduced the key note speaker of the morning, Dr. Franklin Graham. Dr. Graham, son of Evangelist Billy Graham is the CEO of Samaritan’s Purse, a world-wide humanitarian relief organization and CEO of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Franklin delivered a simple, yet powerful message regarding the love of God, the Father and the gift of His Son. The breakfast was closed by Dr. Clinton, who also serves as Executive Director of the Center for Counseling and Family Studies at Liberty University.
