History of the EVMPB

Celebrating the 4th Annual Event

This year in Mesa, we are celebrating the fourth annual East Valley Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast (EVMPB), which is modeled after the National Prayer Breakfast, held annually in Washington D.C. since 1952.  In 2012, Hugh Hallman, former Tempe Mayor and Jon McHatton, former Chaplin to the Arizona Senate and founder of CARE INC, helped to launch “For Our Cities” program, which connected the faith community and the City of Tempe.  This led to the first Mayor Prayer breakfast   “Serving Side By Side” is the motto of the EVMPB and is a collaborative effort of mayors from our East Valley cities and towns along with business, community leaders, and various faith organizations.   The goal is to continue to foster a partnership among faith based groups and leaders in the business, government and nonprofit sectors that want to better serve the human service needs in their communities.  The breakfast offers a unique opportunity to be inspired and reflect on the responsibility we have for one another.
