The East Valley Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast (EVMPB), 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.
CARE INC is a civic nonprofit organization who serves the leaders of local government, faith, nonprofit and business communities by providing a safe place for discussion, implementation, action and service that brings solutions to the needs of people.
EVMPB is an annual gathering of East Valley Mayors, leaders of faith, local government, businesses, and nonprofits working in partnership on human service needs in their community.
